Our Wish

If we could wish upon a star,
and see our wish come true.
The only thing we would wish for,
is what we cannot do.

To bring our daughter back to us
without her earthly pain.
For memories now are all we have,
since parting was such pain.

I know there's other parents
who have shared our darkest night,
but children shouldn't pass on first,
we should be their leading light.

Although I speak the mysteries
of the mind within the soul,
within our hearts we suffer
from a huge big gaping hole.

We strive for reassurance
that at last we'll meet again,
but until then, like others,
we just learn to live with pain.
