My Little Girl is Gone

My Little girl is gone
A Chuck Weiskircher Poem © 11/4/2011

A special tribute to Rachel Marie Hodges November 15th 1977 to October 30th 2011

I am sad today as I say good bye
Days like this always make me cry.
My little girl has gone away
Forever with the Lord she will stay.

She was so young and full of life
She was a mother, daughter, aunt and wife.
Forever in our hearts will she remain
Our love for her will ease our pain.

The girl we knew has gone away
I know I’ll see her again one day.
When I get to heaven I will give her a hug
Wrap my arms around her so she feels snug.

Until that day I chose to remember the good times
Telling her bed time stories and silly rhymes.
Taking her around to the amusement parks
Going to see Santa and 4th of July Sparks.

We shared special moments with family and friends
She would write me letters with her favorite pens.
We both moved around but we stayed in touch
I always reminded her that I loved her much.

Her sons then came into her life
And then one day she became a wife.
The joy they shared was special to see
When I came to visit they even made room for me.

The years rolled by and she grew up too fast
There were ups and downs but we had a blast.
Now she has gone and we are left behind
Yet she will live on in a special place in my mind.
