In Warm Loving Hands…..
I’ve fought with my thoughts, the presents I would have given, knowing full well they’d never be opened. Searched for the smiles I’d hoped to have seen, missed all the laughter we’d have shared without thinking.
Looked to the skies, watching the clouds floating around, made out the pictures before merging from sight.
Starred deeply into nights blackened skies, scanned for the stars, those glistening twinkles show me just were you are. I often speak to the air that surrounds me, hoping your voice flutters by to reply me. My hands always open for you to hold on to, sometimes I feel yet my eyes never see you. If only a visit could be arranged, they’re now just the thoughts I live with today.
Still makes me smile to see their little eyes light such a shame yours closed before we shared our best times. So long ago now but still hurts today when my angels left but daddy stayed.
So once again later when the stars start to shine I’ll talk to the heavens whilst holding your hands. I miss you more than I ever thought possible, close my eyes whilst I secretly hold you.
To any parent, family member out there that lives with this pain, I feel you, don’t let it take all of your smiles, think of the memories you hold in your heart. At any time it all becomes hard look to the heavens and search out their stars..
I know it’s a task, I know tears will fall but love lasts forever, those thoughts never go. That memory, those smiles we were lucky to have found , keeping the best ones we carry around. They may have left us but they stay in your heart. Just keep going forward like that cloud changing picture,make every day different.
Today’s just a memory of how much we miss you. Today we returned to yesterday’s smiles and the times that I held you in warm loving hands.
