Wednesday Words #3

It’s Wednesday so time to link up with Crazy With Twins Wednesday Words feature.

How long will I love you

This week has been quite difficult for me.  I am struggling with some anxiety.

This Sunday will mark the anniversary of the day Matilda Mae was cruelly taken by SIDS, she simply went to sleep and never woke up.  My heart breaks for her family every day.  It makes me hold my baby tighter.

I love this song and my eyes fill with tears whenever I hear it.  To me it is my song to my baby and I feel it is a song for all the babies who have been taken, especially Matilda Mae.  Wherever they are we will always love our babies.  They will always fill our hearts.

If you would like to support the Lullaby Trust, who are working to eradicate SIDS, you will find their website here.

A Letter To Matilda Mae #matildamae

Dear Tilda,

Just over a year ago you were taken away.

I never got to meet you, but I feel as if I did.

You hold a place in my heart and I think about you every day.

I have shed tears for you and often still do.

This is down to your mummy.

She will never forget you, nor will we.

She raises money tirelessly to stop it happening to others.

She is always finding ways to celebrate your life.

She is remarkable.

You would be so proud of such a mummy.

We see stars, bubbles and lights and we think of you.

You were taken away far too soon and you have taken some of your mummy’s heart.

She will continue to make a legacy in your name.

Sweet dreams beautiful girl


I have written this letter to baby Tilda who was cruelly taken by SIDS on 2nd February 2013 at exactly 9 months old.  This letter forms a part of a collection of letters on Ghost Writer Mummy’s blog to honour Tilda’s life and to show support for her amazing mum Jennie.  Who despite her grief has raised a considerable amount of money for The Lullaby Trust for research into SIDS.  To try and stop this from happening to other babies and families and for that, we should all thank Jennie. x
