God be with you and bless you; it is done.

My love, my soul's other-half, it is now time.

It is time to say good-bye and move on,

As this life inside me is now due.

For our strength to grow, I have to let go of you.


The time to mourn you is done and revered,

And so, my dearest, I'm ready to transfer my love

To the life inside me, the life that chose to stay.

With all my being it is now for her I pray every day.


I thank-you for showing me real love,

For teaching me the meaning of: unconditional;

For opening my heart to My Father in heaven

And preparing me to be an incredible mother.


I wish you had not chosen to leave.

I wish the circumstances were different;

But I know God's awesome way is mine,

And soon our daughter's too. I trust His way, divine.


Always know that you shall be missed;

That your choice has been completely forgiven;

That the love was in every way, always, true;

And I promise I will instill that love in our daughter too.
