Birthday Cake

Tomorrow is my daughters second birthday.
Sadly she isn’t here to celebrate with me.
She didn’t even make it to the day she was born.

Last year I couldn’t bring myself to make her a cake.
I couldnt bare to eat it without her.
I couldn’t bring myself to celebrate.
I took her balloons, but that was all I could face doing.
This year I’m more at peace with how things are, that she will never celebrate a birthday with me.
So this year I made her a cake.
It matches her present – a little Jellycat rabbit.

We will give her presents and take her balloons and eat cake.
We will celebrate her life.
Her 21 weeks inside me.
With family.
My little family.
My parents and my Rainbow, Jackson.
