Are there rocking chairs in Heaven
where little babies go?
Do the angels hold you closely
and rock you to and fro?
Baby Death Poems
Poems for Infant Loss
Death of a loved one is always a cause for mourning. However, when a baby dies, there is a sadness that goes beyond normal grief. We are programmed to expect that the old outlive the young. When a person who has lived a full life passes away, there is a sense that everything is as it should be. When a baby passes, who has not even has the chance to experience life, his death seems meaningless. If he was meant to die so soon why did he even come into the world?
