For ~Joeli~ on Her Sixth Birthday
Do not tell me she is in a better place -
Her place is here with her mother.
Do not tell me that God needed her -
God made all the angels he needed before time began.
Do not tell me you know how I feel -
You have not buried a child.
Do not tell me to get over it -
You never get over losing a piece of you.
Just tell me you love me.
That you remember her.
That you are here for me.
That you wish there was something you can do to ease my pain.
There is nothing you can do but it helps to hear you say it and to know you care.
