Precious child, my angel

2017-05-23 06:00

I carried you for 9 months – this after God had blessed me with you.

I protected you every day, I prayed that God protect you each passing day.

As you grew up I laughed at the little things you did.

Growing day by day I never stopped praying for you to grow into a well-mannered young person.

The day I had to leave you to go work ... please forgive me, I had to. This was for you to have a better life, to have the toys you were crying for all the time.

You took your first steps, gave your first laugh and this made me a proud parent.

At times I could not hold back my tears, thanking God for the precious gift he granted me.

Your first birthday party you had, having no idea what was being planned at the time, but your smile was priceless.

I would have never thought that I would be one of the statistics – my child going missing.

Reading the newspapers, all forms of media, I could not stop praying to God to protect you.

Then it hit me: My child has gone missing.

The feeling is unbearable. Where are you, my child? How are you doing? Are you okay?

The pain, what, why, how ... millions of thoughts running through my mind.

Sleepless nights. Calls, SMSes on where my child is.

God had given this gift to me, what evil monster has taken my child.

Thousands of people searching for my little angel.

Then the knock on the door, the day we all dread. “We found your child. Your child is no longer on this earth.”

Within a second my whole world stops.

God took away my most precious possession – an angel was taken from this earth. However the pain, God knows the reasons why.

Rest in peace, my angel. We will miss you dearly, you are always in our thoughts.

Our kids are given as a gift borrowed to all of us.

Let us adopt “a child is my child” attitude; they are given to us to be loved, not brutally murdered.

My prayer is for the Almighty to protect all of your kids today and always. Your kid is my kid – our angels on earth.
