Baby Loss Poems

"You never said you're leaving

You never said goodbye

You were gone before I knew it,

And only God knew why.

A million times I needed you,

A million times I cried.

If love alone could have saved you,

You never would have died.

In life I loved you dearly

In death I love you still

In my heart you hold a place,

That nobody could ever fill.

It broke my heart to lose you,

But you didn't go alone

For part of me went with you,

The day God took you home."

~Unknown

 

"We couldn't wait to hold you

And see your pretty face.

To count your little fingers,

And check if your toes were in their place.

 

It should have been the happiest day

To remember all our life.

But joy had turned to heartache,

No breath, no beat, no life.

 

We will never see you smile,

Or hear your hearty cry.

We will never be able to dry your tears,

Or share your happy times.

 

Our precious little Angel,

We will always know your face.

In our hearts and stars forever,

You will always have a place."

"A million times I've missed you, a million times I've cried.

If love alone could have saved you, you never would have died.

To some you are forgotten, to others just part of the past;

but to me who loved and lost you, your love will always last.

It broke my heart to lose you, you didn't go alone,

for my life went with you -sweetheart- the day angels called you home.

For things on earth didn't matter, but now I feel so alone,

My heart will always be broken, my life will never be whole.

We might be parted for awhile, our hearts will always be together

for one day soon we will hold hands again forever."

~Unknown

 

"I have not turned my back on you

So there is no need to cry.

I'm watching you from heaven

Just beyond the morning sky.

 

I've seen you almost fall apart

When you could barely stand.

I asked an angel to comfort you

And watched her take your hand.

 

She told me you are in more pain

Than I could ever be.

She wiped her eyes and swallowed hard

Then gave your hand to me.

 

Although you may not feel my touch

Or see me by your side.

I've whispered that I love you

While I wiped each tear you cried.

 

So please try not to ache for me

We'll meet again one day.

Beyond the dark and stormy sky

A rainbow lights the way."

They Say There is a Reason

 

"They say there is a reason,

They say that time will heal,

But neither time nor reason,

Will change the way I feel,

For no-one knows the heartache,

That lies behind our smiles,

No-one knows how many times,

We have broken down and cried,

We want to tell you something,

So there won't be any doubt,

You're so wonderful to think of,

But so hard to be without."

~Author Unknown

 

"If tears could build a stairway,

And memories were a lane,

We would walk right up to heaven

To bring you down again.

No farewell words were spoken,

No time to say good-bye.

You were gone before we knew it,

And only God knows why.

Our hearts still ache in sadness

And secret tears still flow,

What it meant to lose you,

No one will ever know.

When we are sad and lonely,

And everything goes wrong,

We seem to hear you whisper

"Cheer up and carry on."

Each time we look at your pictures,

You seem to smile and say,

"Don't cry, I'm only sleeping,

We'll meet again someday."

IM GOING TO TELL YOU SOMETHING

(author unknown)

"I'm going to tell you something, I hope you'll never have to know.

I'll tell you how a heart can break and tears can constantly flow.

I lost my baby boy you see, an angel in my eyes.

The lord reached right down, took his hand and led him to the skies.

Please don't ever tell me that time will heal my pain because not even time will bring him back again.

Please do not forget my child, he was a person too,forever he will live inside of me and you.

Just tell me that’s he’s happy, in that land way up above, he's snuggled in an angels wings  

and wrapped in mommy & daddys love."

 

I Lost My Child Today

By: N. Wilson

 

"I lost my child today.

People came to weep and cry, As I just sat and stared, dry eyed. They struggled to find words to say, To try and make the pain go away, I walked the floor in disbelief, I lost my child today.

 

I lost my child last month. Most of the people went away, Some still call and some still stay. I wait to wake up from this dream.This can't be real. I want to scream. Yet everything is locked inside, God, help me, I want to die. I lost my child last month.

 

I lost my child last year. Now people who had come, have gone. I sit and struggle all day long. To bear the pain so deep inside. And now my friends just question, Why? Why does this mother not move on? Just sits and sings the same old song. Good heavens, it has been so long.I lost my child last year.

 

Time has not moved on for me.The numbness it has disappeared. My eyes have now cried many tears. I see the look upon your face,"She must move on and leave this place."Yet I am trapped right here in time,The songs the same, as is the rhyme,I lost my child......Today."

 

"Each new life...

No matter how fragile or brief...

Forever changes the world."
