I Never Saw Your Face
Never did I see your precious face
Nor did I get to count your fingers and toes.
I did not get to hold you in my arms,
or rock you to sleep and kiss your little forehead.
You were my child, my sweet little baby.
Yet you never took a breath of life.
Your heart was stopped before you had the chance.
You never felt Mommy’s gentle touch Or saw Daddy’s loving smile.
You were taken from us before life had a chance.
Robbed of all the wonderful times we would have
Robbed of hearing your giggle, and seeing you smile
It all seems so unfair.
