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!
