We felt her kicks for 9 months,
She filled our hearts with love,
And so we named her Angel
A gift from God above.
We never got to hear your voice,
Or see you smile.
If we could take a trip to heaven
We’d walk a million miles.
Trust that God is holding you as we try to keep our heads up high.
One day we will meet again in heaven our precious Angel Skye.
