My daughter Died.

They told me today

That this is the end

I knew it was just a matter of when

Youíve been fighting for over 75 days

And weíve seen how strong you are in so many ways

I guess your body can only fight for so long

God, this all just seems so wrong

Itís just not fair this is happening to you

Youíre so young and you still have a lot to do

I try to pray for strength to do whatís right

Itís just I donít want to quit

While you still want to fight

I keep hoping He will give me sign

Something to tell me

That she is still mine

I guess I just have to put her in

His hands

And pray that He will do all he can

I need her so much

But all I can do is cry

And pray that somehow

My baby wonít die

I try to understand

And get these thoughts out of my head

But somethingís are worse

Than just being dead

How do I go on knowing sheís no longer around?

Then again how do I bury a daughter?

Six feet in the ground.


Author's Notes:

This is unbelievably sad, sorry for your loss.  A friend has just lost his daughter, after 6 months...

It's hard to find the right words to say to him, but you can never be prepared for something like this.

My prayers are with you and your family.  I can only imagine what you are all going through, and I know that nothing anyone says will help to pacify the pain you feel.  I believe in God, and in Angels and I'm sure that you will reunite in heaven with your daughter.


My most Sincere Condolences, Rin

My thoughts and prayers go out to you and your family on the passing of your dear daughter. May you find solace in believing that she's safe in the arms of Jesus and free from pain and suffering. She's actually an innocent little angel watching over you all.

This poem is a heartbreaking albiet a beautiful description of your grief.

Congrats on the award.

God looked at his garden,
then at you daughters face.
He saw her weary body,
so for this rose he made some space.
He decided to take your daughter
for He only takes the best
and he knew her soul,
needed a quiet place to rest.

I am filled with tears and sorrow for you loss. My heart breaks with yours. She suffered so much in her very short life, now God has taken her home to rest. Congrats on the award.

What a heartbreaking write...My heart broke a thousand times over just trying to imagine the pain you had to be feeling. Never having been there, I can only imagine and cry for the pain you had to endure.

My heart to you...Congrats on the award...and my deepest sympathies over your pain...

Oh my.....I am so sorry for your loss. Through the falling tears I try

 to comment on this heartbreaking yet lovely write. It tears my heart into

a million pieces to see a child pass. But dear, God needs angels to help

him watch out for all of us. I cannot even begin to know of your grief, your

sorrow,or your heartache. I pray for you. My heart goes out to you and

your family. Just know in your heart that your precious angel now

rest God's arms, no pain, no surgeries, just a beautiful angel 100% whole and

new. God Bless.

I am SO sorry for your loss. No one should EVER have to bury a child. My heart and well wishes go out to you and your.

Oh Starr, this is so tragic and it breaks my heart. No one should ever have to lose a child, let alone one as young as your baby girl. My heart goes out to you, and I am so sorry for your loss.
