Azaylia Cain’s mum Safiyya Vorajee shared a beautiful poem on her Instagram story for Ashley Cain in the first media post directly to her other half after the tragic death of their baby girl.
Their daughter Azaylia sadly died when she was just eight months old after battling a rare form of leukaemia.
The heartbreaking loss took place on Sunday, April 25, and Safiyya has been open about how she is “really struggling to cope” following the tragic death.
The heartfelt poem, which was written over a photograph of former Midlands footballer holding their baby girl was signed Azaylia Diamond Cain.
This post was the first public mention that either parent had made following the loss of their baby girl. The grieving mum wrote alongside the post, “Beautiful just for you Daddy I love you [kissing face] @mrashleycain”, as she shared it with her 1.1 million followers.
The poem read: “You may not see me daddy but I walk alongside you,
“You may not hear me daddy but I say I love you too,
“You may not feel me daddy but I put my hand in yours,
“Guiding you through the days, opening every door,
“Sometimes you might not see any signs, just know I’m having fun,
“I’ll make the brightest star shine, while you’re out on your run.
“One day you will see me again, I know you can’t wait I bet,
“I’ll be right here to walk you in, I’m waiting in the sunset,
“Until then daddy, I know you’re do your best, chanting let’s go champ, I’ll never get some rest.
“I love you daddy I really do,
“I’m singing in paradise, “I wanna be like yooouu”.”
The Ex on the Beach reality star opened up in a video on her story about how hard she was finding it to cope after the loss of her daughter.
She said: “I just finished a training session again today and while I’m training it eases my anxiety and makes everything feel a bit better.
“As soon as I stop, I literally just go into a breakdown mode and I just want to cry, so I feel like I’m going to go back outside.”
She went on to share a similar poem addressed to Mummy, which she wrote “My hero Azaylia Mummy loves you so much” above.
After opening up about how she felt, she went on to wish her followers Eid Mubarak, explaining how the belief behind the month of Ramadan meant that she knew her daughter was in paradise – which is known as Jannah.
She said: “If you’re celebrating Eid today, I just want to say Eid Mubarak to you all. You’ve all done amazing.
“Azaylia got taken during the month of Ramadan and it’s a very special month and it’s so pure and beautiful.
“So I know she’s now in paradise and she’s protected and she’s good and she’s waiting for me.
“It’s so, so hard honestly. Getting myself up everyday honestly just feels so hard.”
She asked her followers to share their coping methods to deal with the loss of a loved one and brought up the ongoing terrorism taking place in Palestine.
Sharing an additional post of a boy waving the flag of Palestine, she wrote: “In the blessed month of Ramadan, Azaylia left us for a better place”.
