What I Miss

My husband wrote this poem for me when I lost our only daughter Hannah on
3/28/97 due to a placenta abruption.

What I Miss
by Steve Crook

Binky, blanky
cute yellow bow
happy, cranky
I'll never know

Patty-cake, tummy ache
sittin' on my knee
lollipop, bunny hop
not meant to be

Band-Aids, braces
a butterfly kiss
making you giggle
is what I miss

Girl Scouts, boyfriends
making the team
prom night, graduation
It's all just a dream

College, career
out on your own
meeting someone special
all of it postponed

Scrapbooks, memories
We'd laugh how time flew
I'd hate to kiss you good night
cause reluctantly I knew....

The day would come
to give you away
how could I know
it would be today
