Could I have another moment?
Another kiss, another smile,
One more chance to watch you sleep
Or just to sit awhile.

Ours to keep, or so we thought.
We found we were mistaken.
Like most of those who've lost a child,
We felt we were forsaken.

When I watched your life play through my mind,
I can't believe I failed to see
The silhouette of angel wings
There to set you free.

I no longer feel so angry.
You were heaven's all along, you see.
Our time will come to be with you
To share eternity.

Today, 27th June 2017, marks 39 years since the stillbirth if my daughter Merion. My elder daughter Joanne faced a life that was a constant battle against heart and lung disease and she finally died just short of her 40th birthday on 5th June last year. In October 2016 my now only surviving son, Richard, left the UK with his Australian wife and my only two grandchildren, aged just under 3 and 6 months, to live in Sydney. I feel so bereft. The present and the future seem to be meaningless.

It's been 7 months since I lost my beautiful daughter Harriet to cardiomyopathy (a rare heart condition). I'm still struggling every day to come to terms with it. I feel so lost and empty. I don't know what to do with myself every day now. I miss her so much. I never got to say goodbye. I'm feeling so down all the time. Mummy loves you so much, my beautiful princess.

My heart goes out to you. I lost my Tayla Jade 9 years ago yesterday at age 2 to a drowning accident. I know it feels like hell, as if life will never go on. It never goes away, and you never get over it, and it never hurts any less, but somehow you put one foot in front of the other and move on. Yes, it's hell, but you will find strength you never thought you had. One day at a time. Take comfort in that she is in heaven and watching you. She would want you to be happy and to live. God bless.

Hi, I lost my only daughter 2 weeks ago. I have those same feelings of hopelessness, loneliness and sadness. I don't feel like I can go on. I know I need to reach out for help.

Yes, very much. I lost my daughter 2 1/2 years ago along with my husband in a tragic car accident. Tomorrow is her birthday and it's very hard. She is the middle daughter of three. She left behind two babies. I miss her and my husband (her dad) every minute of every day. The only thing that has saved me is knowing I will be with them again for eternity.
