I Buried My Daughter Today

I Buried My Daughter Today

Poem by Andrea Hill

I buried my daughter today
My soul burns red with pain
No longer will I touch her face
Or caress her skin again

I buried my daughter today
God, what have I done wrong
To have her stolen from my arms
When my faith in you was strong

I buried my daughter today
Thank God I have another
I couldn't walk this path alone
Every breath is a struggle

I buried my daughter today
She was just a bit past three
Searing, ripping, tearing ache
My emotions overcome me

My other now a mother this eve
To God above, how I pray
These words by her not repeated
I buried my daughter today
