Broken Circle

I looked into your eyes,
And I was love struck.
You touched my heart,
And the fingerprints stuck.
I kissed your cheeks,
And watched you smile,
You made me cry,
And it was all worthwhile.
I held your little hands,
So cute and so small,
You completed the circle,
Now we had it all.
I tucked you in,
And I said good night.
I walked away slowly,
It all felt so right.
I had no idea,
That you would not stay,
You couldn't tell me,
You were going away.
I came home one day,
And found you there blue.
Daddy rushed to the clinic,
They tried to save you.
I went into a room,
They said you were gone.
You weren’t coming back,
Your brain wouldn’t respond.
I looked in your eyes,
With a pain no one knows,
You broke my heart,
Every day, the crack grows.
I kissed your cheeks,
And watched you lie still,
You made me cry,
I needed you still.
I held your little hands,
But they did not hold back.
The circle was broken,
The strongest impact.
I tucked you back in,
And I said goodbye.
I walked away slowly,
Continue to cry.
