Did You hear me

I held your hand that day
My darling girl
That awful day when your eyes closed
I hugged you to my chest and prayed so hard
I gave you my best first aid training darling

I did not bring you back but I tried so hard
As did others

I worked with you through a waterfall of tears
Trying to control my sense of panic

I knew you were in trouble sweetheart
I knew we were being tested my very special girl
You tried so hard to come back to me

I could not overpower the angels
I know that

My life’s fear is
Did you hear me talking
Did you hear me say

I love you forever
