I Will Never

I Will Never

I will never sing you lullabies
or tuck you in at night
I will never kiss a boo boo
or soothe you from a fright
I will never read you stories
or hear you sing a song
I will never put your toys away
or teach you right from wrong
I will never hear you laugh
or ever see you smile
I will never tickle you
or hold you just a while
I will never teach you letters
Or help you with your math
I will never play in a pool
or get soaked in a bath
I will never make you breakfast
or prepare for you a snack
I will never hug you again
or ever get hugged back
I will never brush your hair
or help you get dressed
I will never tie your shoe
or tell you how I'm blessed
I will never play a game of tag
Or hide and go seek
I will never comfort you
or hold you when you are weak
All these things I will never do
and it will hurt until forever
But you ask will I forget you?
And I'll tell you never.
-- Amy Gray
 
Missing you Janessa.

Malory,
your poem stopped me dead in my tracks. It describes almost everything I did today with my 3 year old and will never do with my sweet Cayden. You spoke to me and my husband with every word.

Oh I am in tears right now. So sad that we will never get to do those things with our daughter's BUT we will always hold them dear in our hearts.
