Your fingerprints are on my heart.
Even though I never held your hand –
… you touched me.
Even though I never heard you speak
– you taught me.
You taught me about love.
You taught me about courage.
You taught me about living.
You taught me about loss.
You brought me closer to my loved ones.
You brought me closer to myself.
In the time I cared for you my whole life changed
– never to be the same.
All this from your fingerprints that touched my heart.
Your will stay in my soul forever
– never to be forgotton.
I will always love you.
You are my child.
