Baby Death Poem

I lost my son at one week old through a heart condition. Each day that passes I think of him and although I'm sad I also thank god that I got to share a week with him.
I feel he is still watching over me as there have been many situations in my life since he passed that I just couldn't have got through only for strength he must have sent to me.

My Darling Son

Published: November 2010

6 years today my Darling son, You came into my world with joy,
It was shortly lived as they swept you away, My darling little boy.
I wept as I waited for you to return, I prayed with all my might,
But all I got was a picture of you and the words you were in for a fight.

My little dear you fought so hard, As I whispered don't give up,
You'd squeeze my hand as I'd go to leave as if to give me hope.
The doctors said your broken heart would be very hard to mend,
And I asked our Lord in the skies above, that for you he wouldn't send.

My sweet angel, you couldn't stay,
And until that final day,
You fought so hard within your bed,
To do as mammy said.

I whispered to you, Darling you can let go,
You have tried so hard I know.
And in that moment you took a breath,
The last that you would get.

I miss you so much, Still to this day,
The ache wont go away.
There is always that hole within my heart,
Which won't heal while we're apart.

I know my dear that you're by my side, each day that I get through,
All the goodness in my life right now, Is all because of you.
My darling angel we'll meet again, At heavens door you'll be,
Till then my sweet, I know your here watching over me.

My son also had hypo-plastic left heart syndrome. He had surgery at less than a week old. He was born Nov 13, 1998 and passed away after a big fight on Nov 24, 1998. He never saw the outside of the hospital he was operated in. Even though it has been 13 years this year there is not a day that I do not think about my first born son, also Thanking God for him and his siblings who never got the chance to meet their big brother, every day! God Bless you Ethan xxxx
