I may not get to hold your hand, but you will always be in my heart

I held your hand most the day, at first when you were doing ok that is all I could do is touch your hand and leg, but as you deteriorated throughout the day and I finally got to hold you, I just kept thinking how I would never get to hold your little hand, while you take your first step, and cross a road, I would never get to walk you into school for the first day. This was going to be the only time to hold your hand. I thank all the girls that put money into the twinkle toes, they came the day he died and now I can look at his little hands and feet every day. Even though it isn't the same it is something. I think this is the one of the most precious things that I have. I love you Harrison.

    Tiny Angels rest your wings
    sit with me for awhile.
    How I long to hold your hand,
    And see your tender smile.
    Tiny Angel, look at me,
    I want this image clear....
    That I will forget your precious face
    Is my biggest fear.
    Tiny Angel can you tell me,
    Why you have gone away?
    You weren't here for very long....
    Why is it, you couldn't stay?
    Tiny Angel shook his head,
    "These things I do not know....
    But I do know that you love me,
    And that I love you so".
