Son Death Poem

I lost my son only hours after his birth. I couldn't reach his father and that's what hurt worst. my son Keagan was my pride and joy. I miss him dearly.

My Beautiful Baby Boy

© Haley Manns
I loved him dearly
More and more every second he was with me
I held him so gently
Then tears began to poor
Because I knew by the end of the day I wouldn't have him anymore
I'd done anything to keep him out of harms way
But that didn't stop gods will
I still lost my baby that day
In my arms he died
So for weeks now I have cried
I just can't understand what was on gods mind
How could he do this, It was so unkind
To take my baby
And before he could even see his daddy
I would have took his place
Just for his daddy to see his face
I'd gave him my every breath
I would've gave god every beat from my heart
I'd ripped it right out of my chest
Just so he wouldn't take Matt and Keagan apart
He should have at least gave them a small start
It was so unfair
because god didn't even give Matt a chance to be there
compared to my feeling of losing my child
This poem was nice and mild
Because I could explain the hate
but it would really do no good cause it would still be to late

  • I'm really sorry about the loss of your little baby.. my nephew was stillborn but I got to see him.. it wasn't nice, but that day is the day I'll cherish forever, I miss all the times I shared with my sister while she was pregnant with him, I miss feeling his little kicks, and I still have his heartbeat, which I recorded, if only that beat didn't stop.. he would be here with me right now :'(

  • I am so sorry for your lost. I know how you feel. I had my little boy home for three weeks after three long months in the hospital and he passed away in my arms. I woke up on Sept. 22, 09 with him not breathing and not responding. I was so scared. I know how you feel, I see that morning all the time and think what I could have done different. But, in all honesty there was nothing I could have done. The good lord above said it was his time even though I don't agree with that, it is true. Keep him in your hearts and your memories.

  • I lost my son "nunu" in 2006. at the age of 14 . A gun in the hands of his friend went off "accidently" a decision I'm having a hard time with. My heart goes out to all who have lost a child no matter the reason. The pain will never go away but each day it may become a little easier to bear. But what helps me is remembering the good times we shared.

  • I feel for all who have had to bury a child. I have had to bury two. My oldest who would be sixteen this year died only two hours after his birth due to complications from birth. And my sons twin brother died at two months three days from his vaccinations. I find every day is a challenge and it doesn't get easier it just gets more bearable with time.

  • Thank you so much for sharing. This time of year is very hard for me and it helps me get through by strength of other people who have gone through similar experiences. My daughter passed away at only 10 hours old. She was born premature and fought very hard for her short life. She will be 15 this year. 2 years later I had a very healthy boy who passed away at 13 months old. He will be 13 in a week. They say with time it gets easier...I say with time you learn to deal with it but it never gets easier. You have your good days and you have your bad days. Again, thank you for sharing about your son and one day we will all see them again.

  • I lost my baby boy, he was 54 days and healthy until he went to bed with his mother. He slept with me 2 nights before, he woke up at 4:00 in the morning, I fed him, made pictures before he slept again. 3 days later I buried him, how a fate I came with in this life, could not even knew what is going with my son during this last night of his life. I was sleeping in another room, Nobody touch me in sleep to wake me up to see what going with my baby. God even didn't woke me one time to see my kid what is going on, he was a beautiful gift to me, it was so pleasure my son to be with you, to shower you, you made me a happiest father. I was happy for 54 days, until that morning I hit my head on the wall, I am broke, can't find life any where around, miss my boy, he was just very small didn't hava a joy of life. My love to my boy will always remain, he will always be alive in my heart. but I still want him, am I getting crazy or this is normal for a father when he loses his first son?
