In my dreams, you are alive and well
Precious child, precious child
In my mind, I see you clear as a bell
Precious child, precious child
In my soul, there is a hole
That can never be filled
But in my heart, there is hope
'Cause you are with me still

In my heart, you live on
Always there never gone
Precious child, you left too soon
Tho' it may be true that we're apart
You will live forever... in my heart

In my plans, I was the first to leave
Precious child, precious child
But in this world, I was left here to grieve
Precious child, my precious child

In my soul, there is a hole
That can never be filled
But in my heart there is hope
And you are with me still

In my heart you live on
Always there, never gone
Precious child, you left too soon,
Tho' it may be true that we're apart
You will live forever... in my heart

God knows I want to hold you,
See you, touch you
And maybe there's a heaven
And someday I will again
Please know you are not forgotten until then

In my heart you live on
Always there never gone
Precious child, you left too soon
Tho' it may be true that we're apart
You will live forever... in my heart

    I lost my baby at 4-6 weeks 6 months ago, then gave borth to my twin boys 3 weeks ago at 14 weeks, much too young to survive. This is a beautiful song. How do I get a copy as I would like to use it at their funeral on 8th April please. Thankyou x

    I have lost a son and this song is so beatiful and so true he will live for ever in my heart. My life has changed so much and will never ever be the same again. I would love you to send me the song. Hope you have a Merry Christmas. We should be celebrating christmas but instead we are trying to cope with losing Scott.

    Hi Joy, my name is Simone and I came across one of your postings in a grief FB group. I'm so sorry to hear about the loss of your son. In case you are interested, I have created a storytelling project called Our New Lives (ournewlivesblog.wordpress.com) that aims to reduce the stigma associated with death, grief and recovery. I think some of the stories may provide you with some comfort. All my love to you xx

    I lost my baby girl on may 27, 2010 at 27.5 weeks gestation. This song comforted me many sad nights. On aug 10, 2012 a co-workerfound her 6 month old baby had gone to sleep and never woke up. I listen to this song again every night thinking of her and her baby boy.
