A Letter to Sloan

My sweet, beautiful Sloan
Tomorrow is your 5th birthday.

I wish, every second, of every day,
that you were here with us.
That I could cradle you in my arms
and feel your breath on my skin.
But by some unimaginable, twist of fate,
-that is not what was chosen for us.

And so instead of watching you blow out your candles,
and staring in awe as your eyes sparkle in the light of their flame,
I thank you for giving us the gift of knowing your soul,
and trusting us to honor it now that you’re gone.

I’ll love you always,
Mama
