Your Place In My Heart

I've thought about this and don't know where to start.

There are no words that can explain your place in my heart.

It doesn't seem like long ago, but today makes eight years.

Even as I'm writing this, it's hard to fight back the tears.

I remember it so clearly; the day I received the call.

Your mother was in labor, and I should hurry, and not stall.

I arrived at the hospital, and I didn't know what to expect.

When they told me you might not make it, I hung my head and wept.

You were so small and fragile lying in that glass bubble.

You were hooked up to wires and tubes, even breathing gave you trouble.

As time passed your little heartbeat continued to slow its pace.

Until the fifth day, God took to heaven my little "Lilly Grace".

Things happen for a reason, this I'm told is true.

But it don't stop your family from dearly missing you.

Now you're an angel and can look down from high above.

I bet you're spectacular with wings like a dove.

I know you're in good hands, and live in a beautiful place.

Just always remember Daddy loves you, my little "Lilly Grace".
