Baby Death Poem

Poem About Death Of Son Shortly After Birth

My neighbours are still grieving for the baby they lost shortly after birth. He was full term and perfect - but had inherited a disease that prevented him from living. I feel so sorry and so powerless - so I wrote a poem for them. They'll probably never read it, but that doesn't matter.

Our Son


Published: April 2015

loving plan,
much longing,
mom and dad.

holding hands,
wondrous babe,
family bond.

Mom's sweet smile
Dad jumping,
our son, you all!

So beautiful,
perfect in every way.

Joy to sorrow,
not here to stay.

Short time,
cruel leave.
Why arrive,
if not for this life?

Child of heart,
perfect, strong,
love brought,
never wrong.
