I never got to hold you,
Or kiss your little head
Or watch you sleeping soundly,
All snuggled in your bed.
I can’t count your tiny fingers,
Or you even smaller toes
I won’t see your smile,
Or your cute little button nose.
You’re gone too soon – we don’t even know
If you’re a girl or boy,
Our hearts are filled with sorrow
When they should be full of joy.
I know you are in heaven,
Where there is no pain or tears.
You’ll never get hurt or sick,
In heaven there are no fears
And though I’m sad you’re not here right now
For us to hold today
I know we’ll hold you in our arms
When we’re in heaven with you someday
