Letter to Santa
I wrote my letter to Santa today
I hope I’m not too late.
I just about caught the postman
As he was closing our front gate.
I didn’t ask for much at all,
Just a few inexpensive things.
I told him he could keep his gifts
And his expensive diamond rings.
I only asked for one more moment
To hold him close to me,
To whisper to him one more time
That he is everything I hoped he’d be.
To smell his heavenly baby scent.
To feel his fingers in my palms
And feel the weight of his little body
Resting gently in my arms.
See I told you I’m not asking much.
That’s why I wrote this little poem.
Just un-break all our hearts, Santa
And bring our baby home.
Time stood still when they told me you were gone.
Life changed in a way most can’t understand.
I sometimes think if I walked back into that hospital room,
We’d still be there, you and I – you in my arms and my heart in your hand.
I do everything differently now just because you were here.
With each passing day, my heart breaks anew.
I sometimes wish I could have carried you inside me forever,
And then I remember that I do.
We never truly lose those we love.
They are always with us.
In the memories that we made together
Which weave themselves
Into the very fabric of our being.
Their hearts beat within ours.
Every time we speak their name
We remind the world they were here.
We are held together by an unbreakable bond.
One that cannot be broken by time,
Nor distance, nor even death.
They are stardust.
Forever lighting our way when the night is darkest.
