Goodbye Before Hello


Published: January 2011

God, why does my heart mourn for this loss that has me sworn, I don't understand why this had to happen to me. Why me I ask as I pray tears still raw on my face.

My heart is broke never to mend I had no idea of the pain that could prevail from within, never did I believe I could hurt so bad.

Selfishly I am hurting when I know you carry my son upon your eternal haven and he's happy in the gates of heaven never to feel the pain that I am feeling as a lost mother of a son who's past.

I don't know which direction to turn my path into perspective. I will never be the same once so happy as I  was ready to welcome my little baby .

As I felt him grow and kick and hiccup I was so ecstatic yet my miracle turned to agony  never guessing what the doctors would say to me awful words linger my mind "there is no heart beat", "you lost him and there's nothing to be done but to prepare yourself for the unknown of having a son that's already gone", to hold his lifeless body and to have to say goodbye before ever saying hello.

I lost my baby at 16 weeks the difference was that I could hear my Isabel's heart beat strong as the first time I heard it, but my uterus started to open my water had broken the doctors told me "there's nothing we can do" she's was too small, lungs not developed. Nurses kept going in checking to see if her heart would fade, giving birth to her meant her death...

As I sit here crying, I am remembering my 2.5 year old son Lukas Ayden, who would have just turned 5. He would have been getting ready for kindergarten. Riding a bike, playing in the yard... I will never know why he fell from my window. I will never understand why he passed, and children who fall on concrete lived ( Lukas fell in soft dirt). I will forever blame myself for his loss. And I know there are people out there who feel this loss too. I just never know what to say. I came here to find a poem for a friend's friend, who gave birth to a stillborn, too small to live. And it hurts me more than I thought it would. I don't know her, didn't know the baby. But knowing that Lukas has a new friend in Heaven, does not make me feel better, but worse. God bless you LUKAS AYDEN. Mommy will be with you again. Keep my spot warm for me.

My Beautiful Granddaughter was gone before she could take a breath. My daughter-in-law was in a car accident on Dec. 5th 2011 and she was due to deliver Bailey Jean on the 8th. We lost Bailey at the scene and at the hospital her Mommy died too but God sent her back to us. We were unable to have a funeral till now and we are having it on the 18th of March. I was on here trying to find a poem for the memory cards. This is the hardest thing I have been through. She was so perfect and I was planning my future with her since the day I knew she was gonna be here.

This poem hit home ... I have read many and this sounds almost exactly as it happened to me. I lost my son ... Jonathon E. Petty, March 14, 1997 and the pain is still there and the memories and words are still replaying in my mind and the pain is still in my heart. Thank you for sharing ...

I know the pain. I lost my son Lucas at 30 weeks also by the cord. And those words "there is no heartbeat" are the most painful. I had him 11/27/2011. I love you Lucas and you will always be my angel baby!

I know this pain and feel it everyday. I lost my son in the same way. I was 39.5 weeks when I lost him ready to deliver when they told me those same words "There's no heart beat". My heart sank my head spun. He was fine just two days ago I said. His cord was rapid around his neck three times and he had a knot in the cord. Every day gets easier but I will never forget him. We all have our angel babies. I got mine 08/07/06 a day I will never forget!
