Losing Hailey

hailey

You’re in the hospital once more
We still don’t know what’s wrong
Prayers go out across this land
To keep you safe and strong,

They say your illness is a mystery
And as we look at your sweet face
Each one of us who loves you
Would gladly take your place

We adore you and we’re here with you
Each night and every day
You’ll never be alone sweet girl
We’ll be here come what may

As the days turn into weeks
We hold on to the hope
That you’ll grow up and live your dreams
It helps us all to cope

Your parent’s hearts are aching
Their eyes shine bright with tears
You haven’t smiled for quite some time
Enhancing all our fears

When at last we have an answer
The doctors sad and sure
This is a rare and cruel disease
There is no hope or cure

This all seems so surreal to us
You’ll leave us soon they say
We cry and kiss you tenderly
And with the priest we pray

Dear God, please care for this sweet child
When she departs this earth
She’s brought pure joy and sunshine
Since the moment of her birth

Then in your Daddy’s loving arms
Your dear Mommy at your side
You were released to heaven
Now with the angels you’ll abide

We left the hospital that night
At the culmination of our fears
It was the walk of broken hearts
Each one of us in tears

For you the time had come sweet girl
Your perfect spirit free to soar
For us the grieving had begun
We will miss you evermore.
