Death Of A Baby
(Baby Loss Poems)

In a baby castle
just beyond my eye ..
My baby plays with angel toys
that money just can’t buy.

Who am I to wish him back
into this world of strife ..
No play on my baby
you have eternal life.

At night when all is silent
and sleep forsakes my eyes ..
I’ll hear his tiny footsteps
come running to my side.

His little hands caress me
so tenderly and sweet ..
I’ll breathe a prayer, and close my eyes
and embrace him in my sleep.

Now I have a treasure
that I rate above all others ..
I have known true glory
and I am still his mother.
