Baby Death Poem

My Charlyze was alive for three months and I can say without doubt that those were the best months of my life. She did more for me and my family than most people do in their lifetime. She was born with a very rare case of petty syndrome. Being only the ninth case, we did our best to prepare for the worst. No preparation is enough to ready you for the loss of your child. I will always miss my little monkey, but one day I will see her again. I will not have these empty arms forever.

In Heaven On Your Birthday

©

Published: July 2013

Precious in your little frame, You danced into my heart.
And with the grace with which you came, With grace you did depart.
You held my finger in your hand, And with it held my soul.
I fell in love with those wide eyes, One kiss and I was whole.
You caught me by surprise The way your only need was me.
And I learned I need you too, But I had to set you free.
Your monkey feet have left Such an imprint in my life.
And sometimes I still hear you, Crying for me in the night.
You're in heaven on your birthday And I can see you way up there,
With the cutest party dress on And a bow, tied in your hair.

My baby girl died last April 15, 2017 because of congenital heart disease and did not survive the open heart surgery at the age of 1 year and nine months. Tomorrow (July 31) is her birthday. She would be 3 years old tomorrow. I miss her so much. The pain is still in my system.

My baby girl died 2 months ago. She also had congenital heart disease. She died while I carried her in my arms. After she passed, life has never been the same. I miss her always. There's pain in my heart all the time. God bless my little angel.

My baby girl name is Evelyn, and she died at 10 days old. They said she would not even last 1 day and she fought for 10. She's my little warrior, and though it's very painful and it's a wound that's never going to heal completely, we have peace 'cause she's resting with God and that was his will. We are thankful for those 10 days.

My son, John, died 26 years ago tomorrow, March 12th, of a heart defect. He didn't survive open heart surgery, but they allowed him to die in my arms. I don't think a day has passed that I don't shed a tear. When he died so did part of my heart.
