I never knew I could love so much, until the day I felt your touch. I softly kissed your cheeks and from under your lashes I saw you peek. Your beautiful eyes, so small and blue. My sweet little baby brand new to the world. It hurt so much my son, my love, my little joy. I will never get to see you grow up and shine. I promise I will never forget you and there will always be a place in my heart for you. Even though I only got to spend 6 months and 6 days with you, I still can hear your laughter in my ears. I miss you so much. You brought me joy, every time that I looked at you. All the things that you did brought a smile to my face. I was so glad when God gave me you, you were so full of laughter, so happy all the time. I always loved to wake up every morning, just to look in your beautiful blue eyes and see your smile. One day when my time has come, we will be together again. -Mommy
