A letter to Matilda Mae

Matilda Mae

Dear Matilda Mae,

I didn’t know you.

I never met you and I have never met or spoken to your mummy or daddy, or your brother or sister.

Until I started writing a blog a few months ago I had never even heard of you.

When I started writing about my little boy Toby I started talking to lots of other bloggers on Twitter and I saw your name come up over and over again.

It was around the time of the Welly Walk that your mummy and daddy had organised.

So I went to your mummy’s blog to find out what it was all about.

And that was when I found out about you and what had happened.

I read your mummy’s letter to you and I could not imagine the pain she must have felt.

The pain that your whole family must still feel.

I can honestly say I have thought about you every day since then.

Your name is always in my mind.

Little Matilda Mae who has gone to the stars.

But gone too soon.

You have touched the lives of so many people.

Your mummy has done so much to raise awareness and raise money for The Lullaby Trust.

So that perhaps another baby might live.

Even though you could not.

Every night I give my little Toby Bear an extra kiss.

So that he might stay safe.

And I think of you.

Matilda Mae.

You will never be forgotten.

Love xx

P.S. Purple is my favourite colour too.
