Monologue (Death Took My Baby Away) - Poem by Neil Solan

If for just one second
It had crossed my mind,
That this morning's goodbye
Would be the last time,
I would see your face
Smiling back at mine,
The sure as sure can be
I'd have tucked you in more closely.

Every day we wake,
There are certain risks we take;
But once we were plenary
I thought we could not break.

This loss I now feel,
Aches like no single soul could know,
I know, I know she is gone
But this lost but shared love affiar
You should instantly bestow.
I miss my baby always,
How could I ever grow?
I miss my baby always
Like no-one could ever know.
