So Nearly Beautiful

(Heulwen)

Sometimes I feel lonely
Others I feel fine
Sometimes I need comfort
Others I need time

Our time was so limited
And with so much pain
For as I was holding you
Only your body remained

You left us at birth
In more ways than one
To join our maker little angel
For he needed another one

Your name stands for sunshine
And that is what you are
For every time the sun shines
You will not be far

Love always, Mummy
