Those We Have Held In Our Arms For A Little While Child Loss Quotes

Child Loss Grief Poems

Goodbye My Little One

How can I say goodbye
when I never said hello –
Why does my heart grieve
for the one I’ll never know?

You were a part of me
for just a little while –
I grieve because I’ll never see
the magic in your smile.

I grieve for all the unsaid words
that you will never get to say –
I grieve that I will never see
you happily at play.

I grieve for all the lullabies
that will remain unsung –
I grieve because I’ll never see
your face gleaming like the sun.

I grieve because you will never know
the comfort of my touch –
I grieve because you will never know
that you were loved so much.

I grieve for all the tomorrows
that will never be –
I grieve because God chose
to take you back from me.

You live among the Angels now
your earthly mission done –
You will be so dearly missed
goodbye my little one.

Sunshine passes
shadows fall –
Love’s remembrance
outlasts all.

And though the years
be many or few –
They are filled with
remembrance of you.

A gift for such a little while
your passing seems so wrong –
You should not have left before us
it’s with loved ones you belong.

Oh, Little Butterfly
messenger of God –
When I see you in the sky
I cannot help but nod.

You bring me respite
from grief and despair –
Every time I see you
sailing through the air.

You renew my faith
in all God’s wondrous plan –
And I know it’s all in faith
not in what I understand.

Where I have gone
I’m not so small –
My soul is as wide
as the world is tall.

I have gone to
answer the call –
The call of the one
who takes care of us all.

Wherever you look
you will find me there –
In the heart of a rose
in the heart of a prayer.

On butterflies wings
on wings of my own –
To you, I’m gone
but I’m never alone.

I am home

A life inside me
a love so strong –
She died inside me
but the love lives on.

It broke my heart
for her to go –
I love her, I need her
like she’ll never know.

I never held her
or heard her cry –
And I wasn’t ready
to say goodbye.

I never dressed her
in tiny clothes –
Or saw her smile
as I tickled her toes.

I cry for her
in the night –
It hurts so much, and
no-one can make it right.

By – Amy Douglas

God needed an Angel in Heaven
to stand at the Saviors feet –
His choice must be the rarest
a Lily pure and sweet.

He gazed upon the mighty throng
then stopped and picked the best –
Our child was His chosen one
with Jesus now at rest.

My child you’re not forgotten
although we are apart –
Your spirit lives within me
forever in my heart.

Please forgive a falling tear
a silent wish that you were here –
Others have lost like this we know
but you ours and we loved you so.

Loving you is easy
I do it every day –
Missing you is a heartache
that never goes away.

As you release a butterfly
in honor of me –
Know that I’m with you
and will always be.

Hold a hand
and say a prayer –
Close your eyes
and see me there.

Although you feel
so torn apart –
Please know that I’ll be
right there in your heart.

Now fly away butterfly
as high as you can go –
I’m right there with you
closer than you know.

These are my footprints
so perfect and so small –
These tiny footprints, never
touched the ground at all.

Not one tiny footprint
for now I have my wings –
These tiny footprints were
meant for other things.

You will hear my tiny footprints
in the patter of the rain –
Gentle drops like Angels tears
of joy and not from pain.

You will see my tiny footprints
in each butterflies’ lazy dance –
I’ll let you know I’m with you
if you just give me a chance.

You will see my tiny footprints
in the rustle of the leaves –
I will whisper names into the wind
and call each one that grieves.

Most of all, these tiny footprints
are found on Mommy’s heart –
‘Cause even though I’m gone now
we’ll NEVER truly part.

By – Tamara Barker

I’ll never get to see
your precious face –
Or whisper words
to make you feel safe.

I’ll never get
to hold you tight –
When you can’t
sleep at night.

I’ll never get to sing
to you, a sweet lullaby –
To calm you down
when you cry.

I’ll never get to fall asleep
with you in my arms –
All bundled in a blanket
to keep you safe and warm.

I’ll never get to hear
you laugh and giggle –
Or to see your
little toes wiggle.

There are many things
I will never get to do –
But the hardest thing is
not being here with you.

By – K. Fugleberg

Tiny Angel

Tiny Angel rest your wings
sit with me for awhile –
How I long to hold your hand
and see your tender smile.

Tiny Angel look at me
I want this image clear –
That I’ll forget your precious face
that is my biggest fear.

Tiny Angel can you tell me why
you have gone away?
You weren’t here for very long
why is it you couldn’t stay?

Tiny angel shook his head
These things I do not know –
But I do know that you love me
and that I love you so.

Precious Little One

We had you in our lives
such a very short time –
BUT we will hold you
in our HEARTS forever.

It seemed like only
a fleeting moment –
BUT it was long enough
to see you touch you
hold you, love you.

It was long enough
to know that your life
was indeed a gift
no matter how brief
no matter how fragile.

Your life was indeed a gift
and we will hold you
in our HEARTS FOREVER.

Here on earth, I cry my tears
my grief has just begun –
While now in Heaven
my loved one rests
and God says ..
..  Child – Well done!

Before the throne of God
thousands of Children stand –
Children whose sins are all forgiven
in a happy, holy land.

Up there among the throng
our little one stands –
Waiting for us to join him
in that holy, happy land.

Child of My Heart
not flesh of my flesh –
not bone of my bone
yet still very much my own.

Never forget
for one single minute –
That you grew
not under my heart
but in it.

The Master Gardener
from Heaven above –
Planted a seed
in his garden of love.

From there it grew
a flower bud small –
That never had time
to open at all.

There will come a time we promise you
when you will hold our hands –
– stroke our faces and kiss our lips.
And then you will understand.

You were a gift sent from heaven
given to us, from God above –
Little did we you you would teach us
about the meaning, of true love.

For true love sometimes means
letting go, of one you adore –
Sweet, we truly do believe, that
God must have needed you more.

O blessed little sunbeam
O child of love and prayer –
We give thee to the keeping
of the tender Shepherd’s care.

Hi Mommy, It’s me, your little Angel
just checking in with you –
I know you’re sad because I’m gone
and Mommy I’m sad too.

It’s beautiful here, wherever I am
there’s such a lovely view –
But mostly, when I’m sitting here
I’m looking down at you.

I see all your feelings
everyday when I look down –
I love to see you smile and
I know sometimes you frown.

But, guess what Mommy?
I have a special job to do –
God, he saved it just for me
to, watch over you.

So though you cannot see me
and I know it’s hard on you –
You’ll surely see the benefits
of the job, God has me do.

A little Lamb too sweet and pure
upon the earth to roam –
An angel came so silently
and took our dear child home.

I carried an Angel in my womb
right below my heart –
The time with my Angel, was short
but I loved my baby, from the start.

An Angel visited
the earth one day –
And took my pretty
flower away.

Another sweet flower, has withered
a gem from the casket, set free –
A lamb in the fold, of the Shepherd
who said; “Let them come unto Me”.

We miss her love
and sweet ways –
With her, we spent
our happiest days.

In memory we see her
just the same –
As long as we live
we’ll cherish her name.

Tear drops slow and steady
the pain so real and true –
God took another Angel
and that Angel dear, was YOU.

There is a mother who misses you sadly
and finds the time long since you went –
And I think of you daily and hourly
but try to be brave and content.

But the tears that I shed in silence
and breathe a sigh of regret –
For you were mine, and I remember
though all the world would forget.

Angel wings upon the clouds
your body softly sleeps –
Hush now little princess
no more tears, you have to weep.

We cried tears when we learned
that a child would be –
That your GOD, had allowed
you to quicken in me.

We cried tears with our loved ones
as they shared our joy –
And we thought about names
for a baby girl or boy.

I cried tears as I thought
of the things that we would do –
All the things that your Daddy
would pass on, to you.

And I cried, as I thought
of each inch you had grown –
As I pondered the day
you’d make yourself known.

Then, to think of the world
you must enter, brought fears
Once again, little loved one
your Mother cried tears.

Somethings wrong, I can tell
once again, there are tears –
And I’ll not get the chance
of your love, through the years.

Oh the ache and the sorrow
and all of the pain –
And again, yes again
my tears, they fell like rain.

Then His peace comes to me
as I think of you there –
Gently rocking with FATHER
in His favorite chair.

Your sweet little fingers
clenched tight in His palm –
and His Son softly singing
to help keep you calm.

Our Father knew you days
before they came to be –
And He knew, little one
you would not, stay with me.

So, I cry but I know
that when this life is done –
I will greet and embrace you
my little sweet one.

There’s a time to be born
and a time to die –
And the joy and the sorrow
both make us cry!

As Angels keep their watch up there
please God, let him know –
That I down here, do not forget
I loved him and miss him so.

The hardest thing
in life to bear –
is to want our Angel
here, not there.

So forgive us Lord
while we still weep –
for our dear Angel
we wanted to keep.

Although we’ve never breathed your air
Or gazed into your eyes –
That doesn’t mean, we never were
As Angels never die.

An Angel in the book of life
Wrote down our babies birth –
She whispered, as she closed the
book, ‘too beautiful for earth’.

Sweet little flower
of Heavenly birth –
Far too fair
to bloom on earth.

Within our store of memories
you hold a place apart –
For no one else can ever be
more cherished, in our hearts.

No farewell words were spoken
no time to say goodbye –
you were gone before we knew it
and only God knows why.

Just one little peek into heaven
is all, I’m asking for today –
I just want to know, how she’s doing
and heaven, seems so far away.

Is she playing on the clouds, with Angels?
is she laughing and running today?
Does she miss me? I guess, only she knows
oh why does heaven, seem so far away?

If you just let me look, for a moment
to catch a glimpse of her face –
I promise I won’t try to take her
I know, she’s in a better place.

Just one little peek into heaven
is all I’m asking for today –
I just want to know how she’s doing
and heaven seems so far away.

A tiny flower
lent not given –
to bud on earth
and bloom in heaven.

Although we may not see them
and they don’t make a sound –
Whenever they are needed
our Angel is around.

Beautiful memories
silently kept –
Of a baby, we loved,
and will NEVER forget.

If tears could build a stairway
and memories a lane –
I’d walk right up to heaven
and bring you home again.

Now I lay you down to sleep
I pray the Lord your soul to keep.
Within his arms he’ll hold you tight
My Heavenly Angel my Guiding Light.

A life so brief
A child so small –
You had the power
to touch us all.

A thousand words
won’t bring you back
I know because I tried –
And neither will
a million tears
I know, because I cried.

We’ll soar the skies together
as Angels two by two –
We’ll have a sweet reunion
this Mommy’s dream come true!
