Baby Death Poem

Poem Saying Goodbye To Unborn Son

I have a friend who has been having trouble with pregnancies. She was excited about making it past her first trimester. At her 19 week check-up, the doctor didn't find a heartbeat. After exams and tests, the doctor believed the baby stopped breathing about a week after her 16 week check-up. My friend went in to induce labor and deliver her baby boy who died inside her womb.

You were here, you were near. You grew, and I knew you were alive. I felt you move, I saw you grow, I heard your heart beat. My boy, that was your name, until I could learn to love your name....

Baby Boy

There are no words to say but, "I love you,"
For I've shed tears to not have heard you coo.

A mother's joy turned to grief in a moment so fast,
Hard to bear that your heartbeat had passed.

Instead of Heaven sent, you were sent to Heaven to be;
You're another guardian angel to watch over me.

I was blessed enough to hold you so dear.
I will try and fight all emotions of shedding a tear.

Baby boy, baby boy, just know,
You will always be loved; you'll see my tears flow.

I must admit I don't agree of what plan
God had for you and me.

I shall not be angry or fall apart;
Please just know I love you with all my heart.

I'll see you someday in the future not so near,
'Til then, baby boy, I'll love you from here.

You were here, you were near. You grew, and I knew you were alive. I felt you move, I saw you grow, I heard your heart beat. My boy, that was your name, until I could learn to love your name. You were here and life was slowly turning clear, and suddenly you pained me, my dear. I could feel you slipping away. I was calm, yet terribly afraid. You were in my arms for a moment. Then you were not again.
