Happy Birthday Belle

I've been wanting to make a memorial video for my sweet little Angel.
So to celebrate her 5th Birthday I finally did it.

This day will be a celebration
Of the short time you were here.
You will always be remembered
With great love and sometimes tears.

But only to feel pain and sorrow
Would not be fair to you.
Your life meant more to me,
More than I ever knew.

You were here so briefly,
I wonder if you know
All the ways you've touched my life,
Since God called you home.

Now, my child, you're with
our Heavenly Father above.
I see not only what I've lost
But my capacity of love.

There will always be a big void
My soul will grieve forever.
Will I forget or stop loving you?
No, not now.... not ever.

As this sad day is upon me
Oh how my heart still hurts!
But even as I mourn your death
I celebrate your birth.

Happy Birthday Belle, Mommy loves you.
