Baby Death Poem

The Loss Of A Grandson

We lost our grandson after birth in January 2018. He had a disease, and we knew we'd lose him. It affected his organs and took one of his legs. My husband has been struggling with this. In efforts to comfort him in any way I could, I wrote this poem for him. My husband's grandpa passed away many years ago, and he always says that he just wishes he had one more day with him. I know my husband knows that his grandfather is with his grandson in heaven, but he still struggles with this loss every single day.

Dear Grandpa,

I don't want you to worry about me.
This was the plan from the very first day.
God told me to trust him, you see,
To believe and trust his way.

When Mommy told you about me
I saw that sadness in your eyes,
What to feel or how to be.
Yes Grandpa, I heard your cries.

I know that this was hard for you
And I saw you on your knees,
Praying for a miracle to come true.
Your heart was on your sleeve.

I heard you scream to Jesus why,
Blaming him for losing me.
I'll always be your grandson,
And my grandpa you'll always be.

I found comfort in your arms
And the love you had for me.
I'm not far from where you are.
In your heart I'll always be.

Heaven is really a peaceful place.
I'll meet you again one day.
Keep your faith and always pray.
Know Jesus and trust his way.

I felt you hold my hand that day
And say your I love you's.
Up here, Grandpa, I can run and play.
Close your eyes, you'll see me too.

The day I left this life to be
In heaven with someone new.
Not only Jesus Christ, you see.
I met your grandpa too.

This poem is sad. It’s very sad to lose someone, especially a child or grandchild, and things like that happen all the time. What makes it even sadder is being a mom, dad, grandpa, or grandma. I bet you would do anything for that baby, especially if it’s your baby. I like this poem because it’s a poem of love for a child.
