In Memory of
Aubrea Twila Anyssa Carman
Daughter of Claudette Poplau
12-9-86 to 5-27-87
To My Daughter
You were the child I had longed for.
For so long, a daughter.
My little girl to dress in dresses, pink, lace,
With barrettes in your hair.
You were so beautiful with a lot of dark hair.
I held you when you were born.
I held you when you were happy.
I held you when you cried and
I held you when you died.
You were my future, I lost that and part of myself
When you died.
The years have passed and I wish I could hold you
And love you again.
I miss you so much, I love you so much
You will be in my heart forever.
