My Almost 7-year-old Girl

This is a poem I wrote in 2015 about 5-year-old girls, but I am reminded of it again this year, with my would-be-almost-7-year-old-girl. So I changed 5 to 7 to make it applicable.

7-year-old girls should bring boisterous laughter and constant chatter
Glitter, baby dolls, and pigtails should be what matter

7-year-old girls should never leave you alone
Instead of silence gripping your heart as you talk to a stone

7-year-old girls should love Frozen, dressing up, and American Girl too
Not leave us wondering what we're missing and who

7-year-old girls should no longer be babies
Rather than a question mark of a lifetime of maybes

My almost 7-year-old girl will never be 7
She's alive waiting for her mommy in Heaven

I miss you.
I miss you.
I miss you.
Even more so as your birthday draws near.
I'll never stop. 💕 #myforeverbaby
