In memory of my daughter Keira

3 years ago today
You came to this world
But you were too special
And the angels took you back
You came too soon
You were not ready yet
In my arms I held you
While you took your final breath
Ten hours you fought
I wanted you to fight
But you were too special for this world
So I had to say goodnight
I named you Keira
A special little girl
Who will always mean the world
To me x

Today I should be throwing a party for a 3 year old. Instead it will be making a trip to a cemetery to visit my darling daughters grave. Only I know she isn’t there. I feel her with me every day in spirit right by my side.
I can and will never accept that she is gone but the world carries on spinning and moving and I have to carry on and move with it.
I am grateful for what I have. 3 very special children who are my world. However in my mind remains the questions. Why?? What if?? Maybe if I had just!! Questions that I can’t answer.
Keira came at 23 weeks and 2 days after PPROM or premature rupture of the membranes at 21 weeks.
I wish I could turn back time and change things and have her here with us.
I love and miss her so much. I only spent ten hours with her but those ten hours will be remembered forever. This is my daughter. I don’t have many photos of her alive but want to share this so she is never forgotten.

    She will forever fill that tiny space in your heart taking no less of it than your other children. Your post make me appreciate more how lucky I am having all the time I could dream of with my children . I am sure those 10 hours meant so much to you and I applaud you for having a strength to carry on .

    I had twins that were born at 25 weeks. One lived 11 hours, the other lived 27 hours. This was two years ago but I still think about them every day. I probably will always miss them.
