Kellan

she was born on a Thursday.

with a lifetime of promise to fulfill,

she was only given four days.

i lost her on a Monday.

like water in my hands,

she seeped away

before my very eyes.

Promise Kept.

    • The last line:
      Promise Kept.

      is in reference to the second line:
      “with a lifetime of promise to fulfill”

      Somehow, this little girl, gave me a lifetime in only 4 days. This, I suppose, is part of the magic of babies.

      Thanks for commenting!

    I still ache, and ache, and ache. I think of her often. What I hate is that the ending is always the same.

    Dad.
