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.

I’ll Never Hear You | Loss Of A Baby | Miscarriage Poems

I’ll Never Hear You
(Loss Of A Baby – Miscarriage Poems)

I’ll never hear you laugh
I’ll never hear you cry ..
I’ll never feel you move inside me
and I’ll always wonder why.

I’ll never see you smile
I’ll never kiss away your tears ..
I’ll never hold you when you’re scared
Or hug away your fears.

No first smile
no first steps ..
No first word
will cross your lips.

No first cry
no first breath ..
Just my heart
full of emptiness.

So how do I keep going
when you’ve already gone?
How do I keep living?
How do I go on?

The only peace that I have found
Has come from God above ..
His promise of togetherness
And everlasting love.

I know that you’re my baby
and that you’ll always be ..
You’re mine forever, no matter what
my darling baby.

So though I’ve never held you
I know some day I will ..
Our family is forever
So I’ll just hold on until.

The day I get to touch you
Just like you’ve touched my heart ..
To hold you in arms so tight
Never again to part.

Someday I’ll hear your laughter
Someday I’ll hear your cries ..
But only tears of joy and love
Will escape your pretty eyes.

Someday I’ll see you smile
Someday through happy tears ..
Hope and joy and peace and love
Will replace all my doubts and fears.

Our life together ended
Before it got to start ..
I never held you in my arms,
But I’ll hold you always in my heart.

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!
