You were the last we were going to have.
Every soft breath and quiet cry was held in a little firmer grasp.
We smiled with the newness you brought.
We marveled at your ability to make us dream deeper.
We were shocked with the thought you’d ever be taken away.
The one that set the example.
If she can be strong, how can we be anything less?
