What Would She Look Like Today



How do you love a person who never got to be?

The tiny footprints never touched the ground at all

So please tell me how you mourn the death of one who never got to live

From the day, you came in the world and then left so soon I have always wondered

What you would look like on this day. You would now be nearly 18 what would you have looked like

Today it would be wonderful just to see what your smile or an expression on the face would look like

How would you have done at school would you be clever would you have a boyfriend or maybe a girlfriend.

We just don’t know. I wish I had a magic mirror to ask just one question?

Mirror, Mirror on the wall what would my girl been of like today?

I always have tried to picture on certain birthdays what you would be looking like when I see my girls

today would she have kept that ginger hair she was born with or would it have changed.  

the one thing I never got to see was your eyes what colour would they have been Blue, Brown, Hazel or even blue.

But as we know there is no chance of knowing all these the questions I keep trying to explain.

People often ask I wonder who she would be like, would she look like her brother but all I say is she would have looked like herself she would have had her own special smile, that special look, that special cheeky grin.

I will never know all these questions and I know that. But it does not stop me imagining does it

So, my special girl you are just one picture to me. the one I have in my heart

I love you the same as if you were here.

losing a baby as a parent is the worst thing in life I always tell parents who are going through what I had to go through the pain does heal in time but you will never forget nor never stop loving that child life does go on and you must make the most of it.

But always keep the memoirs close and in your heart.

Lock them away and now and then you will open your heart and start to imagine like me

What would she have looked like today.
