Mummy and Daddy left me again with Grandma. I wish they didn’t have to work so much. I wish they’d stay with me and let me cry.
Grammy, please hold me. Hold me when I cry.
Daddy says I have to stay with Grammy again because I make too much noise. Mummy’s going to have a baby. I could’ve been quieter. I hope it’s a boy. I want a brother to play Chinese checkers.
Grammy, please hold me. Hold me and let’s play Chinese checkers.
I wish I could go back home. I miss my toys, I miss my cat. I miss Daddy and Mummy. Why won’t they call and talk to me?
Grammy, please hold me. Hold me and talk to me.
Everyone says I’m so brave and so good. Mummy’s in the hospital again. I don’t want to be brave, I want to be scared.
Grammy, please hold me. Hold me when I’m scared.
Today my baby brother died. No one wants to tell me about him. I will call him William, like Daddy. I wish I knew what he looked like. Tonight is scary.
Grammy, please hold me. Hold me when the night is scary.
Today Grammy said she missed Gramps. I wish I knew Gramps too. She said he liked to laugh. I like to laugh too.
Grammy, please hold me. Hold me when you laugh.
Today Grammy said she wished she was with Gramps. I asked her where that was. She said it was with William…in heaven. Where is heaven?
Grammy, please hold me. Take me with you…to heaven.
I asked Grammy where heaven was. She said it’s in the sky, with Jesus. That’s who she talks to when she’s sad. I wonder if I could talk to him.
Grammy, please hold me. Take me with you when you talk to Jesus.
Grammy cried when I asked her to meet Jesus. She said they were happy tears. Why do people cry when they’re happy? Grammy says today will be special, 'cause I’m going to meet Jesus.
Grammy, please hold me. Take me with you…to meet Jesus.
