Angel of my Tears | Loss Of A Baby Poems

Angel of my Tears
(Loss Of A Baby Poems)

How do you love a person
who never got to be ..
or try to envision a face
you never got to see?

How do you mourn the death of one
who never got to live ..
When there’s nothing to feel good about
and nothing to forgive?

I love you, my little baby
my companion of the night ..
Wandering through my lonely hours
beautiful and bright.

What does it mean to die
before you ever were born ..
To live the lovely night of life
and never see the dawn?

Ah! My little baby
you lived like anyone!
Life’s a burst of joy and pain
And then like yours, it’s done.

I love you, my little baby
just as if you’d lived for years ..
No more, no less, I think of you
the Angel of my tears.

Grief Poems Child | Footprints Across Our Hearts

Footprints Across Our Hearts
(Grief Poems – Child)

The door is closed, the lights turned off.
a closet standing bare ..
The room that once was waiting
for the child that should be there.

Sorrow wells up inside us
our tears, and endless flow ..
All because we miss the child
the child we we’ll never know.

No camping trips, no soccer games
nor late evening talks ..
No baseball camps or shopping trips
no shaded mountain walks.

We have not even memories
to help through times like these ..
We only have each other
as we go down on our knees.

To plead with you, our Father
to take this pain away ..
To help us know your love
will guide us through each day.

We may never know the reasons
for this terrible tragedy ..
But we can know you love us
through all life’s mysteries.

Our time was far too brief
it was over before its start ..
But our little angel left behind
Footprints Across Our Heart.

Somebody | Poems About Miscarriage

Somebody
(Poems About Miscarriage)

Somebody said
it was all for the best
that something
was probably wrong ..
Somebody said
it was meant to be
Different verse
same miserable song.

Somebody said,
“You can have another!”
As if that would make it alright ..
Somebody said
“It was not a real child.”
Somebody’s not very bright.

Somebody thinks it is helpful
To say when grieving should end ..
Somebody shows their true colors
Somebody isn’t a friend.

But somebody said, “I’m sorry.”
And sat quietly by my side ..
And somebody shared my sorrow
And held my hand when I cried.

And somebody always listened
And called my lost baby by name ..
And somebody understood
That I’d never again be the same.

What Makes A Mother | Loss Of Baby | Miscarriage Poems

What Makes A Mother
(Loss Of Baby Miscarriage Poems)

I thought of you and closed my eyes
And prayed to God today ..
I asked what makes a Mother
And I know I heard him say:

A mother has a baby
This we know is true ..
But, God, can you be a mother
When your baby’s not with you?

Yes, you can he replied
With confidence in his voice ..
I give many women babies
When they leave is not their choice.

Some I send for a lifetime
And others for a day ..
And some I send to feel your womb
But there’s no need to stay.

I just don’t understand this God
I want my baby here ..
He took a breath and cleared his throat
And then I saw a tear.

I wish that I could show you
What your child is doing today ..
If you could see your child smile
With other children who say:

We go to earth and learn our lessons
Of love and life and fear ..
My mommy loved me oh so much
I got to come straight here.

I feel so lucky to have a mom
Who had so much love for me ..
I learned my lessons very quickly
My mommy set me free.

I miss my mommy oh so much
But I visit her each day ..
When she goes to sleep
On her pillow’s where I lay.

I stroke her hair and kiss her cheek
And whisper in her ear ..
“Mommy don’t be sad today
I’m your baby and I’m here.”

So you see my dear sweet one
Your children are Okay ..
Your babies are here in My home
They’ll be at heaven’s gate for you.

So now you see what makes a mother
It’s the feeling in your heart ..
It’s the love you had so much of
Right from the very start.

Though some on earth
may not realize you are a mother,
until their time is done.
They’ll be up here with Me one day,
and you’ll know that you’re the best one!
