Little Spiritual Messenger - Poem by Annalee Hopkins Somerville

I remember the best day the day you came home,
The way you smiled with a destiny of your own.
You opened up my heart and filled it with such love,
I knew you were a messenger loaned from the Great above.

I remember your first smile the touch of your soft skin,
The funny sounds you made and that incredible grin.
Then something happened like a thief in the night you were gone,
It ripped my heart to pieces my soul can't seem to carry on.

I know we didn't have much time but I need for you to know,
Since you've gone to heaven I can't seem to let you go.
The tears your mommy cries are like an endless flow,
They hit the bottom of the ocean and have nowhere else to go.

I hear you in my dreams telling me to let you go,
That holding you like this isn't happiness for the soul.
That sitting sad and broken isn't what you want to see,
But can you understand how much you meant to me.

You were my angel your eyes so bright and blue,
I never felt the love I had until it came from you.
You took my broken soul and healed it with much intent,
The way you touched my life you were truly heaven sent.

Although I feel broken missing you every day,
I wanted to say Thank you for touching my life those days.
In that little time you showed me how to love, and live for each day,
It may have taken some time Thank you for showing me the way.

What I wouldn't do to touch you, hold you one more time,
Tell you that I loved you and cried my heart's good bye.
You can rest with ease my baby mommy sees now and understands,
That when my time comes you’ll be there to hold my hand.
