My Poems in Memory of Kailey Madison Ramsey

by Gina Ramsey

I'm no poet, but today I was outside with my children, and while my DH was playing football with them, I sat down and occupied myself with something I did as a child, looking for a 4-leaf clover. As I looked (although I never did find one), I began to see the similarities in 4 leaf clovers and our little angels, and a poem came to me.

My Four Leaf Clover

I once had a four leaf clover,
So beautiful, tiny and rare,
I looked at it with wonder and delight,
It gave me all the joy I could bear.

So delicate and fragile it was,
So special and full of life,
I truly loved my four leaf clover,
To lose it would cut like a knife.

It meant more to me than life itself,
The days of joy it gave,
I would hold it close to my heart,
And then happiness filled my days.

But like most four leaf clovers,
It was picked way too soon,
I was heartbroken and lost,
My days were filled with gloom.

You see this special four leaf clover,
I had looked into it's tiny face,
It was my beautiful little Kailey,
And she can never be replaced.

Waiting To Die

Once I yearned to live,
Now I'm waiting to die,
I had spent my life enjoying things,
Now life is passing me by

You see an angel came into my life,
My future was happy and bright,
Never did I imagine,
That soon I would lose that light.

She just left me two months ago,
To be with our father above,
I've cried so many tears for her,
My heart is so filled with her love.

Once I yearned to live,
Now I'm waiting to die,
Just waiting to be with my little one,
Up in the heavenly sky.

Dear Daddy

Once upon a time Daddy,
I sat upon your knee,
You looked at me and smiled,
And then said so happily

You're a special little child,
With many hopes and dreams,
If you'll just try hard enough,
You can do Anything.

"Anything" you said Daddy,
But how can that be?
Cause no matter how hard I've tried Daddy,
I can't get my baby back to me.

This time I hate to say,
That Daddy you were wrong,
My baby girl died Daddy,
And nothing can bring her home.

Most times you was right Daddy,
As I have learned through the years,
This time you can't fix things Daddy,
But you still can wipe my tears.
