Birthday Pain

by Krissy Mitchell
Written in honor of Rylee’s 4th birthday

My baby girl turns four today
My heart is aching,
There is so much pain.

Just four short years ago,
I held her in my arms
I was her “Mommy”
Her very First.

I was the first to kiss
Her soft little head,
To cuddle her close
To my heart so dead.

Tears would drip
On her face so pure,
How can I let go
Of my daughter so dear.

Four years gone by
My heart is still numb
I think of that day
when I was her First Mom.
