Baby Death Poem

I have never really been able to express my feelings very well. In fact, I am usually as closed off to the world about my feelings as a giant rock. However, since my daughter died, I can't stop writing these poems, and I want to share with the world the love I have for my beautiful baby girl.

My Mom recently had twin boys and one recently died when he was just 4 months. We had many dreams for him. We are still shocked.

My Dreams For You

Published by Family Friend Poems July 2012 with permission of the Author.

I had so many dreams for you
That will now never come true.
I wanted you to have the life I never had,
Where every day was good and not one day was bad.
I wanted you to be happy and have a fun-filled life.
I would have loved to see you be someone's wife.
I would have loved to see you do a little ballet twirl.
I wanted you to be the world's happiest little girl.
I wanted to put you on my shoulders as we watched your favourite band.
I wanted to take you to the beach and watch you play in the sand.
These are all things that I most wanted to do;
All I can do now is dream of doing these things with you.
Now all I want is to see your smile
And to hold you close for a little while.
Your mum and I are in so much pain,
Even though we know it won't be long until we see you again.
For now all I can do is hope and pray
That I'll get to hold you in my arms again one day.

I lost my cousin. He was four days when he was died. He has a twin brother still alive. His mother came from the hospital happy but then got a shock. About her son's death.

I lost my daughter Aaliyah in 2002, She was born on July 1st and passed away on July 31st 2002. She lived in the hospital the whole time. At the time while I lived in the hospital I had a four year old son that lived with a very close friend who helped me very much. She had e coli in her bowl system that the doctor gave her due to not wearing her gloves during the delivery. It was hard for me to go through this. I have her name tattooed on me, I collect butterflies to remember her by because that is what her grandpa called her his elusive butterfly. I have since had another child and she is 7, her middle mane is Aaliyah, we have pictures of her and they made a had and foot out of modeling clay for me. The second hospital was so wonderful. Emanuale Hospital in Portland Oregon. I thank they very much. and I thank you to for this poem.<3
