The Littlest Angel
Little child, so much older than you appear
Too many heartaches and tears
You have endured
In three short years
Your smile lights up my day
A voice so sweet and tender
A childish laugh that never fails to bring delight
How I wish I could shelter you in my arms tonight
So very hard to let you go
Back to a home resembling a battle zone
Harsh words they fly through the air
Your parents speak in angry tones
Providing you with a house, never a home
A father so cold and cruel
A mother frightened who obeys his every rule
I long to ease your fear and stress
To hold you close and caress
Your tiny cheek pressed against mine
My love for you is beyond measure
You are Na-Naís delicate and loving treasure
Iíll hold you in my heart tonight
Iíll send you angels from above
To keep you warm and safe in heavenly love

Very heart felt and I hear every word.
She is a strong child, this we know. She is a surviver.

I think that says it all,
I like your poem though :-)

....this child has you in her life. You are the reason she will believe in love.
