Miscarriage Poems

Poems about Pregnancy Loss

One of life's most painful losses is that of an unborn child. Miscarriages cause a pain that is unfamiliar to most and understood by few. Parents feel a strong and natural love for their unborn child and to lose their little one to death before they ever had a chance at life can seem unfair, cruel even. Parents are left to wonder what might have been and a pair of empty arms can seem emptier than ever before. Faced with such a terrible situation parents should remember that it is normal, necessary, and healthy to grieve.

    I never shared a tiny yawn
    Or rocked you fast asleep.

  3. 2. An Unfinished Life

    I'm sitting here mystified and numbed with pain
    To lose someone so close, yet so far away.
    Some say you can't lose something you never had.
    If that's true, then how can I feel this sad?
