In Loving Memory | Baby Loss Sympathy Poems

In Loving Memory
(Baby Loss Poems)

No flags were flown at half mast
when my little baby died ..
no limousine to carry her home
no crowds of mourners cried.

But the world for me stopped turning
my heart is filled with pain ..
my tears could fill an ocean
I want to see her again.

I want to say I’m sorry
to feel her lick my face ..
I want to hold her close to me
and always keep her safe.

I wonder how to end this hurt
to ease my troubled soul ..
I wonder how I can go on
without her I’m not whole.

And so I pray to God above
to take care of my child ..
say thanks that she was here
if only for a while.

And I will love another
though she’ll always be a part ..
of everything that’s good and kind
she will always have my heart.

I know that she is happy
running in fields of gold ..
and though I know she misses me
she’ll someday me mine to hold.

So sleep my little baby
your spirit now is free ..
sleep my little baby
you’re still a part of me.

– Forrest Phelps Cook

I’ll Lend You For A Little While A Child Of Mine God Said

I’ll Lend You This Child
(Loss Of Baby Child Poems)

I’ll lend you for a little while
a child of mine God said ..
For you to love the while he lives
and mourn for when he’s dead.

It may be six or seven years
or forty two or three ..
But will you ’til I call him back
take care of him for Me?

He’ll bring his ways to gladden you
and should his stay be brief ..
You’ll always have his memories
as a solace for your grief.

I cannot promise he will stay
as all from earth return ..
But there are lessons taught below
that I want you all to learn.

I’ve looked this whole world over
in My search for students true ..
And from the folks that crown life’s lane
I have chosen you.

Now will you give him all your love
nor think labor vain ..
Nor hate Me when I come to take
this lent child back again?

I fancied that I heard them say
Dear Lord Thy Will be done ..
For all the joys Thy child will bring
the risk of grief we’ll run.

We’ll shelter him with tenderness
we’ll love him while we may ..
And just for having loved him
forever grateful stay.

– Edgar A. Guest

Angel Babies | Child Grief Angel Poems

Angel Babies

When God calls little children
to dwell with him above ..
We mortals sometime question
the wisdom of His love.

For no heartache compares with
the death of one small child ..
Who does so much to make our world
seem wonderful and mild.

perhaps God tires of calling
the aged to his fold ..
So he picks a rosebud
before it can grow old.

God knows how much we need them
and so he takes but few ..
To make the land of heaven
more beautiful to view.

believing this is difficult
still somehow we must try ..
The saddest word mankind
knows will always be “Goodbye”.

So when a child departs
we who are left behind ..
Must realize God loves children
“Angels are hard to find”.
