Still


you grew in me
and I grew too
you were you
and I was me
but we were one
our lives flowing 
weaving
entwined in each other
daughter
mother
connected with love
with tissue and blood
in body
and soul 
and then
the end.

impossible
how can it be that one
so young
so full of life
waiting to burst into this world 
slipped out so quietly
over before even one breath

you slipped away in the night
you didn't even wake me
you left me there sleeping
left me there all alone
waiting
for what would never come

  2. Really is beautiful and cool thinking that you were connected to her during her whole life. She has such a great mom and dad. And she does remain with you still, and forever. Never gone. She is so real and so precious. Dear sweet Olivia, how much your physical presence is missed.
