As I cradle you to sleep dear baby,
I place you in my arms
With love I never had the chance to give
And hugs I shall never receive

You made a day appear so bright
Your visit to us short but sweet
But let it be said... you are angel in sight

With the words we never got to repeat
Your perfect face and tiny features
All embodied to perfection

You know mummy and daddy love you
Although they never had the chance to say
They are always going to remember their daughter
Of that I cannot deny

So as I cradle you to sleep dear baby
Rest your head in peace
You shan’t be forgotten
Our little angel, our little girl
