My Beloved Katie

My Beloved Katie

Each day I wake up from a terrible dream,
Only to find the world has changed.
I go to your room; your things are still there,
Your dolls, your medals and your favorite bear.

The scent of you lingers, the smell of your hair,
Memories of you, I find, are everywhere.
Your precious books are stacked by the bed,
And tissues that captured your tears as you read.

Your paintings and drawings still hang on the wall,
Collections of seashells and rocks from the beach.
Bring back the memories of the times well spent,
How do I go on without you by my side?

To love you to hold you, with smiles and pride.
My heart, it is broken, my dear beloved child.
I miss your laughter, your music and your smiles,
All of our dreams of the future will never come true.

The ‘whys ‘and ‘if onlys ‘endlessly swirl in my head,
Please tell me, oh God, I wish I were dead.
I want to be with you every second of the day,
But Dad and your sister, they need me to stay.

Your friends and your family will never forget,
Your friendship, your love and your gentle kindness.
You will live on forever in their hearts and their minds,
I will love you forever my darling, my child.

In Loving memory of Katie Stauffer 1983-2003.
