She's Gone

In memory of Kaitlyn Nicole Burell
September 28, 1995
by Krista Burell, 4/22/96

She's Gone

No cries fill the night
No diapers to change
No wet baby wipes
Only anger and rage

No sweet baby smiles
No soft baby skin
No warm loving child
Only hurt deep within

No cradles and cribs
No tiny little clothes
No dirty, baby bibs
Only pain no one knows

No strollers no car seats
No first baby steps
No new words so sweet
only cries from my lips

No hollers for "Mommy"
No baby blue eyes
No "Daddy, I'm hungry"
Only tears in my eyes

No school work or paintings
No buses or books
No ballets, no boyfriends
Only long, distant looks

No junior High Dances
No prom dresses and shoes
No big slumber parties
Only a marker to view

No churches, no aisles
No husband, no bride
No marriage, grandchildren
Only a silent graveside

No laughter, no tears
No mother-daughter bond
No "She looks just like you"
Only "Get over it, She's gone"
