Miscarriage Poem

Just a month ago I found out I was pregnant, although I'm 18 and for some reason I had already started to think of ways to support the child...but shortly after a few days I started bleeding, and I knew something was wrong. I went to get checked out and realized I had lost the baby...I try every day to not let it get to me but every TV advertisement and every baby store makes me remember my little angel...

You Have Left Me Hopeless


Published by Family Friend Poems July 2013 with permission of the author.

As the 18th approaches my heart feels a little heavier
I feel energy-less, the thought of you leaves me breathless
I often reminisce about how my life would have been with you, my angel
Was I gonna be a cool mom?
Would you have liked everything I had hoped for you?
Would you be as jolly as I am?
Would you smile as he does?
All these questions are busy eating my soul alive
How is it that at just barely a few days old you have impacted my life the way you have?
Loosing you has sucked the happiness right out of my life,
All I have left is the feeling of guilt, sadness and depression
I never thought it was possible to love another human being like the way I love you
I try with all my might to think about you, but it only makes things worse
You have left a huge place in my heart whereby no one can ever fill
You brought so much happiness into my life
Now that you're gone I feel empty and alive with no particular reason

I honestly don't know how to write this, but here it goes. I was 13 weeks into my first trimester the night of December 2, 2009. I remember waking up in a lot of pain and then the sad news came. I miscarried my baby. Since then I haven't been able to let her go. The place in my heart that's hers feels empty. The only memory I have of her is hearing her heart beat and feeling her move. She's forever on my mind, but I know she's in a better place watching down on me and her siblings. Three years after my miscarriage I was blessed with a lil boy, but it was a high risk pregnancy.

I understand so well how you feel. I am nineteen, and my pregnancy was unplanned, but already I knew I loved it, and I wanted that baby more than anything else in the world. I was already making plans to transfer to a less expensive school so that I could afford more money towards Little One, and I was planning on getting married much sooner than I had anticipated (about a year earlier) and moving in with my fiancé, who is in the army at his duty station a good 1,000 miles from where I live now because I wanted my baby to be closer to his or her daddy and me to have better medical care in case something should go wrong. I quit the caffeine (even though I am ridiculously addicted to the stuff) immediately after suspecting that I was pregnant, began to eat healthier, started taking vitamins to ensure that I really was getting the proper amount of nutrition, went on walks, everything I could think of to ensure my child's health. I found out two days before Thanksgiving that my baby is no longer with me, and the tears that I've cried! I've never felt a more horrible pain than this, and I've never loved anyone or anything the way I loved that child. My deepest sympathies to you and your boyfriend/fiancé/significant other. I hope that time helps you heal.
