Mummy loves sunshine, Hugo:
This year, Mummy and Daddy thought the sun was shining on us –
A beautiful baby boy to look forward to,
Our joy was shining brightly.
Mummy loved being pregnant with you, Hugo:
But you had to be born too early –
You were such a feisty little boy, Hugo Boss,
Our pride shone so brightly.
Mummy so wanted to take you home, Hugo:
We did everything we could,
The doctors and nurses did everything they could –
Our hope shone so brightly.
Mummy’s and Daddy’s hearts broke when you left us, Hugo:
You took pieces of our hearts with you to your new home in the stars –
There is a gaping chasm in our lives where you should be,
The thick dark clouds of grief hide the sunshine.
Mummy and Daddy miss you so much, Hugo:
We are comforted by the memory of you,
The memory of such a special baby –
Your memory shines on.
Mummy and Daddy love you so much, Hugo:
We love you to the moon and back –
A million times.
Yours is the star that shines the brightest.
