ANGEL DEAR

By Patricia Salamone

Littlest angel ever so near

my heart is weeping, can you hear.

I held you in my arms

and felt your breath upon my cheek,

I gently kissed your face, you were just so weak.

Your little hand held mine, your face was so divine,

 I looked into your eyes, you looked back into mine.

 As your life ebbed away and the night turned to day I held you close to me,

you reached your tiny hand up and touched me with a sigh,

you smiled a little smile for me as if to say goodbye.

Littlest angel ever so near my heart is weeping, can you hear.

  1. That instantly brought tears to my eyes. My little boy smiled right before he took his last breath. He shouldn’t have because he was brain dead at that point … but he did. Thank you so much for directing me here, and even more so for writing the poem that I always wanted to but never could.

      • I’m so sorry. That didn’t come out the way I meant it to. It’s been a long time. I’m doing a hell of a lot better than I ever thought I could be. I’ll be catching up on your blog tomorrow … but I’m so sorry that you understand how this feels. That’s one thing that is never really comforting. You want it to be but at the end of the day, all it means is that another person’s child is gone and that’s just horrifically sad. *hug*
