    I fell in love with a beautiful girl
    From the first day she opened her eyes
    And stared back into mine
    The entire room filled with emotion so rich
    I could almost taste it
    But instead I cried
    Tears of joy...

    And when I held my baby girl in my arms for the first time
    So beautiful and agelic,
    I knew she would be a gift to the world

    And when I felt her father's hand press my shoulder
    I looked up and saw un-measurable pride in his eyes...

    Days went by...
    She cried, laughed, crawled, walked
    Months went by...
    She ran, fell, giggled, and talked

    I was completely head over heels in love...
    From the first day she opened her eyes
    And stared back into mine
    Until the last day I looked down at her tiny body...eyes closed, soul gone, spirit departd

    The room was so full with tears,
    If I could, I would have swam to heaven just to hold her
    But instead I cried
    Tears of joy
    Because even though I couldn't have known that she'd have to go so suddenly, sudden to me---I knew that I was blessed to have had her for the year I did

    And as I held my baby girl's life-less hand for the last time...so peaceful
    I knew she was a gift to the world...
    And when I felt her rather's hand press into my shoulder
    I looked up and saw un-measurable pain in his eyes...
    Days went by...months...
    He stopped asking why---

    God has a plan for all of us. I don't know what made me write this...I dont' even have any children or personally know someone that has lost a child. But I do know that even when situations hurt terribly, that all things happen for a reason and that He love you You and so do I.

    it is called inspiration

    this was very touching

    this was so beautifully written....
    "If I could, I would have swam to heaven just to hold her"..that line just hit me...and it speaks volumes of the hopelessness we feel when we lose someone we love....and I agree, everything that happens, happens for a reason....
