I know this isn’t easy
I hate to leave you so soon
I want you to know that you are capable of anything
Strive to go farther than the moon.
Just know that I am with you
In ways you don’t understand
Keep shooting for the stars kiddo
I’ll be there when you land.
I don’t like you seeing me like this,
This is not the life that I imagined
However life works in mysterious ways
We have to make the most out of what has happened.
They say everything happens for a reason
I think I know what that reason is
You are meant to be a strong individual
You’ll eventually find your bliss.
They say that this disease comes in stages
It can only get worse from here
But when things start to go downhill
Keep your head up and smile my dear.
You’ll have to grow up without your Daddy
There are things that you will miss out on
But you’ll always be my little girl
Just know I’m never truly gone.
