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.
