A Christmas Poem for my Baby
By: Emily Hughes

Oh sweet child how you have changed me,
Down inside my deepest core,
No longer am I young and carefree,
Standing on the ocean shore.

For the brief time that I held you,
And the time that you held me,
We developed something special,
We made precious memories.

As the season’s have come to pass,
And we’re brought again to winter time,
I can’t help but want to ask,
“Why god? Why did you take mine?”

So my baby, for you this Christmas,
I have but one special wish,
Know how much your parent’s love you,
Know how much you’re deeply missed.
