There could never be another – Another Sweet Amelie

Oh sweet, sweet darling Amelie, you were one of our family.

If there could be a face that would light up the whole of space, your saucer white eyes would lighten the dark skies. A sniff, and a snore and a snow-white paw, opened up my heart to utterly adore.

Thank you to the moon and back Amelie, you were my darling girl to be. And so I thank you for sharing with me a world filled with happiness, joy and glee.

Oh sweet, sweet darling Amelie, you were such a beautiful tiny wee.

With your velveteen soft fur, your white socks with diddy toes, opened up my heart with your spirit so aglow. With a blink and a paw anyone you would adore, with a twinkle in your eye you would catch anyone going by.

Thank you to the moon and back Amelie, you were my darling girl to be. And so I thank you for sharing with me a world filled with love, bliss and harmony.

Oh sweet, sweet darling Amelie, I am the luckiest girl to be.

You always protected me so tenderly. Your brother is so low, without you being on show, it would take a whole night to kiss you goodnight, watching you sleep, a life time to keep. You knew how to turn down your bed and rest under your blankets with your tiny tired head.

Thank you to the moon and back Amelie, you were my darling girl to be. And so I thank you for sharing your beautiful soul with your adoring daddy and me.

Oh sweet sweet darling Amelie, my heart has been filled with glee.

Since I held you in my arms and felt deeply all of your charm, you will always, always be my darling Amelie, with your button nose and its tiny twirl, you painted the sky with a whirl, you could dig out a stick, play an odd trick. You retrieved anything I threw; uprooted all the roses I grew.

Thank you to the moon and back Amelie, you were my darling girl to be. And so I thank you for sharing with me the dearest pleasure, the one and only, my treasure, my darling Amelie.

A portrait of my love there will never ever be another Amelie.

Oh sweet sweet darling Amelie, you were a delight for daddy and I to see.

You would dance around a wizzy wasp bee, and then would secretly thieve the builderís tea, and all I would fear every day was finding you with another allergy. My heart is filled with raw pain, so broken in pieces with no more Amelie bottom wiggles to see.

Thank you to the moon and back Amelie, you were my darling girl to be. And so I thank you for sharing with me, your beautiful name – ‘Amelie’ showering all over the world to see truth, humility and dignity.

~

Oh sweet sweet darling Amelie, you lived a lifetime of bravery.

Your body like a racehorse so delicate and strong, the sounding of your heartbeat as Walter our robin burst into song. Please stay just for one more moment, as the days are now so lonely and long. I’ll be back in a second, to take care of you Mrs Pickle – because all I wish for right now is to give you another Amelie tickle.

Thank you to the moon and back Amelie, you were our darling girl to be. And so I thank you until my dying day for all the memories of our play.

~

Oh sweet sweet darling Amelie, you were always to good and to lovely.

You hated burnt toast, as you feared you would choke, but with faith and a grand plan there was no way you were missing your jam. We shared all our secrets and dark sighs, never missing each otherís minds being tied up in ties.

Thank you to the moon and back Amelie, you were our darling girl to be. And so I thank you for showing daddy, William and me, how real love should feel.

~

Oh sweet sweet darling Amelie, who died so peacefully on the 21st January.

Amelie pops was your name, baking cakes was a game, and when daddy came home, you were never alone. You were never in trouble when you blew an odd bubble because you knew yoghurt pots were to blame.

Thank you to the moon and back Amelie, you were our darling girl to be. And so I thank you for sharing with me, nothing other than true beauty.
