“Tiny angel rest your wings. Sit with me for a while. How I long to hold your hand and see your tender smile. Tiny angel, look at me. I want this image clear...That I'll forget your precious face that is my biggest fear. Tiny angel, can you tell me why you have gone away? You weren't here for very long...why is it you couldn't stay? Tiny angel shook her head "These things I do not know...But I do know that you love me and that I love you so." Anonymous
