Baby Death Poem

After 5 years of trying I finally got pregnant the beginning of June 2008 . I was ecstatic. My mum passed away June 10, 2007 so I thought this was her final gift to me, as she always wanted to be a grandmother. As of September 11 (what a great date already), I lost my precious gift. I know everything happens for a reason. I know there is sunshine at the end of this rainstorm, but it sure doesn't feel like it right now.

Four Words

Published: February 2009

Despair.
falling deeper & deeper each day.
wondering what else I'll lose
and wondering if it'll go away.

Denial
It's something I sometimes feel.
that the pain I have inside
could not possibly be real.

Sadness.
Not something that disappears
despite what I wish for
I have never ending tears.

Blame.
That's what I often do
I will never forgive myself.
My heart's permanently broken in two.

These four simple words
to describe my feelings inside.
wishing I could crawl into myself
to stay forever and hide.

There are days I wonder
if these feelings will go.
If it's possible for me
to not feel so low.

I lost my son four years ago. He was a full term stillborn. I was so hurt and angry, and blamed myself. Blamed everyone!
The pain gets easier as time goes on. the wound takes a while to heal. But the scars last a life time. We will never forget our angels no matter how much time goes bye.. They where a part of us, a piece of us gone! nothing will ever fill that empty spot..
