Not Ready to Say Goodbye

As sit here staring at your picture I can’t believe you are gone.
I only knew you from this photograph but I loved you just the same.
I know I should put the picture away and move on with my life,
but I’m not ready to say goodbye.
I’m not ready to say goodbye to your beautiful angelic face.
I’m not ready to say goodbye to the hope you brought to my life.
In God’s plan he only gave you two hours of life on this earth.
My faith allows me to believe He had a very good reason for that.
But even with my belief in God’s plan I’m still not ready to say goodbye.

I dedicate this poem in loving memory of my little niece Isabel Imani Smith.
