My Angel

My daughter how I love you, I wish it were me instead of you.

I would gladly give you my heart, but it is filled with pain and gloom.

But know this, my little girl, my angel; it is broken just for you.


I promise to pick you up when you fall, and hold you when you cry.

I’ll never take a moment for granted, every day and every night.

To God I will pray for you to give you courage to live and fight.


I’ll hold you in my arms, and not want to ever let you go.

To God I’ll try not to question or ask why he made you so.

Love is all I have for you, and to you this I will show.


If God would let me, I would die to take your place.

Then from up in heaven look down at your beautiful face.

But he wants me to be your dad, and this I must embrace.


For seven long years, me and mom wanted and prayed for you.

We just never realized how much until the day your heart we knew.

We now pray even more for Him to keep you safe and true.


My little angel, if back to the Father yourself you find.

Jesus will hold you for me and mom, and sing you a lullaby.

Then my darling Isabel to see you, I’ll pray for the day I die.

Author's Notes:

Our daughter is due to be born Feb. 23 2006. During an rutine ultrasound they found that she has a very rare heart defect called Truncus Arteriosus. This effects less than 1 in every 10,000 children born, and only makes up 1% of heart defects found in children.She will have to have open heart surgery shortly after being born to have a chance at life.

I ask that everyone please pray for not only our daughter, but for all the other children that will have heart defects like hers. Also pray for the parents to have the strength and love needed for these precious angels.

Isabel, mom and dad love you so much and can't wait to welcome you into this world.

awww i'm really sorry that your daughter will have a heart defect.
It's a shame that the innocent and defenceless are the ones to suffer the most.
I hope for her sake and both you and your partners, that her surgery goes well, and that she may live a long and blessful life of love
My thoughts and prayers are with you.
Great write
Keep it up
