No Longer

No Longer ~ December 6, 2007

Ruby red lips,
Eyes sparkling blue.
Sweet chubby cheeks,
No longer have you.

Innocent look,
Arms open wide.
Open lip kisses,
No longer by my side.

Look of curiosity,
Into everything.
Humming instead of words,
No longer will you sing.

Wobbily fast walk,
Always running away.
Chasing after you,
No longer will you stay.

Eating cheerios,
Hiding under table.
Blowing mommy kisses,
No longer are you able.

Joyous laughter,
Taking off your bib.
Waking at 3 am,
No longer jumping in your crib.

Snuggles on the couch,
Falling asleep in the car.
Stealing baby kissies,
No longer pointing at the stars.

Licking the windows,
Blanket peek a boo.
My heart forever aches,
No longer have I you.

I love you sweet Ruby and wish so badly to have you back in my arms. To smell your hair one more time, to look in your eyes, to touch your cheek and give you kissies.
