A baby in a photograph,

A child I’ve never met

Loved and adored and longed for

and impossible to forget.

Christmas Eve and time for kids

watching for Santa’s sleigh;

Parents too, gazing at the sky

but wishing for Ella-Mae.

I sit in my home and look at

the child I never met

I shed a tear for the baby

who is impossible to forget.

Tomorrow when gifts are opened

and children laugh and play

There will still be a moment taken

To remember Ella-Mae.
