A Poem for Sophia Jane

Her soul whispers to mine across thousands of miles
In my dreams I can see her face and her smile
When I speak her name, I know with me she belongs
Face to face, nose to nose, dancing to our hearts songs

In her fathers arms I wait, he holds me close, I dry his eyes
This child has stolen our hearts away, this small angel took us by surprise
I hear your whispers my tiny princess
Do not be sad, do not distress

Feel my love, I call on the angels to bring it to you
Regardless of time or distance, we will see this through
The love of a family, enduring and strong
It is here my baby girl-you will always belong

The day will soon come when in my arms you will be
Never to part, forever a branch on our proud family tree
Until then my sweet child, God hold you tight
And fill your tiny heart with His divine light

And send your sweet whispers to me on the wind
I hear you my princess, all of my love I send
