I Loved You First

The first time I felt you inside of me I knew,
That I loved you with all my heart,
And as you did each day, each month
My love for you only grew.

The first time I saw you, I just couldn't wait,
To hold and kiss you, all over your face,
Daddy was there so excited and proud,
When he cut your cord, I thought he would faint.

They were there from the start your Nanna and Gram,
They just wouldn't leave our side,
They were there to shower you with love,
Like only a grandmother can.

The waiting room was full the moment they got word
On that day that you came into our lives
And we filled them again, while we prayed for the Lord
But this time it's like no one has heard.

Now the pain that we feel inside is the worst,
but we treasure the short time that we had,
Though many have loved you in your short little life
I'm lucky cause I loved you first

I have give birth to a little baby girl Brittany. She was 2 pounds and 7 oz. She was 14' long. She was born on May the 14 of 1991. She was born without a brain. She lived for 3 weeks and 1 day. When I was able to hold her for the first timce I didn't want to let her go. On June 5 1991 she looked up at me with those blue eyes and I told her I will always love her until the day I died. Just in that min she looked at me and passed away. It has been 20 years now and I still think about her. When your birthday comes around I will sit and cry all day. I will not see her grow in to a pretty lady. I missed her first word her first step. I'm am 37 now and still miss my little angel... I know she is looking down on me everyday. But it's not the same not having her with me where I can hold her and tell her I love her. I will never let her go. She will be in my heart and soul. It's so hard to let one of your kids go. I know she with God. But I want her too.... Mom loves you Brittany Diane nation...

This poem is great.. I'm glad that someone can actually put into words the way that so many people around the world feel. I still replay the day my 3 month, 18 day old son passed away.. He passed on January 11, 2012 on my oldest sons 4th birthday.. I never imagined that anything remotely this terrifying would have ever happened to me.. I thank God for the strength he gave us to make it through the first few months.. I will never forget you my sweet baby boy.. Mommy will hold you again someday. Rest in peace Brayson Achilles Sebastian.. I will always love you with all my heart..

This morning at 2 am my son passed away. He was 8 minutes away from being 24 hours old. I miss him so much! He was my world! and now here I sit waiting for a plane to board to run from the pain. I miss him so much, I cant believe he's gone. There will always be a place for him in my heart. I love you so so much Kyle Nicholas Dillon Leach-Barns. January 4th 2012 - January 5th 2012

The poem expresses the love and pain of a mother for her child. There are few expressions difficult to express, these are only felt by the person facing the pain.
The above poem had really impinged my heart and even made me cry.
God will take better care of your child.

That poem was awesome, I feel your pain because I just lost my baby on March 18, 2010 he was born on March 15, 2010. He died of heart problems. The hardest part of it all was that I never got to hold him or do what a mother should do with her new born baby, and when I did it was not the way I wanted to hold him. My mom and my boyfriend were there with me through everything. The day he went into surgery I had a lot of support but God made his choice and it was a fast one, too fast I didn't even get to really spend time with him the way a mother should but like they all say he's in a better place.
