Baby Death Poem

On March 15, 2010 I had a beautiful baby boy but he only lived for 3 days and it has been the hardest time of my life. I never thought that I would feel so empty inside so I wrote this poem thinking of the day that my heart was torn inside..In Loving Memory of Aiyden Ace Yebra 3/15/2010-3/18/2010

The day my life would never be the same,
as I lay in the surgery room ready to deliver you,
I drift off, awaking  hearing you cry from afar
I thought in my head, oh thank you God for sending me my baby boy.
As I was in the recovery room I heard again from afar,
your daddy telling me,
baby he's not doing so good they have to fly him out,
without being able to move or say a word I thought in my head,
oh why? God why?
Please don't take him from me.
I hope I'm dreaming, is this a nightmare?
Minutes past, consciousness I regain having to deal with this pain,
I ask once again
why? God why?
As the next days came, I cried and prayed as I looked into your Chinese eyes
and said baby I love you please be strong for mommy and daddy
you look just like little brother,
as hours past the man up stairs decided that you would be better off up there,
as the medical staff called us in and said your baby boy doesn't look to good we had to make the biggest choice of our lives.
I looked over where you were laying sound asleep with your big cherry lips
I kissed them softly as I cried out loud like it was the end of the world,
as daddy held me tightly and said remember he's in a better place
my heart tearing into little pieces
why God? why?
My life will never be the same...Baby Aiyden Ace Yebra

May 30, 2003 I gave birth to a baby boy 9 lbs. 9 oz. I was told at 3 months into my pregnancy that he would not live once I gave birth to him. He had a diaphamic hernia. On May 31, 2003 we had to say goodbye. It was and is still the hardest thing in my life I have ever had to deal with. It hasn't got easier with time. Unless you have ever lost a child you can never understand. I've been told that at least I didn't lose him after a couple years cause that would be even harder. I don't know why anyone would think that. For me it's just as hard no matter how long I had him, he was my child, for 13 hours I was his mommy.
