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.
25 Poems for Coping with Miscarriage Loss
Poem About Losing Triplets
They say that time's a great healer,
But I don't think that's true.
My heart's been aching so, so much
Since the day that I lost you.
I had to say goodbye
Before I could say hello.
I wish I could have told you
How much I loved you so.
You mean more to me than anything,
Even though we never met.
Mummy loves her precious babies,
And I promise that I won't forget.
You're my three shining stars,
And in my heart is where you'll stay,
But don't be too sad, little ones
Because Mummy knows we'll meet someday.

So quickly you came into our lives,
So quickly torn away.
Never got the chance to meet you.
There's so much I want to say.
Where there once was joy and happiness,
Now there's sadness, guilt, and pain.
All these thoughts running through my head,
It's enough to drive me insane.
Though you lived only eight short weeks,
You were loved so very much.
I wish that I could hold you.
I long to feel your touch.
On that fateful night,
My world was ripped from under my feet.
I pray that in another life
We get the chance to meet.Latest Shared Story

or were you a girl

This is natural, they say.
It is all for the best.
I cannot move past this heartache,
This pain in my chest.
Those days were surreal.
Did this truly just occur?
Happiness turned to sorrow
My life now a blur.
This is natural, they say.
I knew I was going to lose you.
The most difficult emotion.
There was nothing I could do.
I am given no explanation.
This is natural, they say.
Were you pink or were you blue.
My complexion is now grey.
Trying to move on,
A forward step every day.
I will always remember you.
This is natural, they say.

Poem Not Understanding Why Son Was Taken
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?
I felt more close to you, my child
More than anyone else around me
Because I felt you so deep within me.
So small, no eye could see
Yet so full of life was felt already.
Disbelief and uncertainty consume my brain
As the tears fall like rain.
Heart pounding hard, feels like thunder.
The sorrow and anguish down under just can't be explained.
Was I being punished for a sin I committed?
Was I to learn something from this and just didn't get it?
Please God, answer me... what did I do to deserve this?
Does he know how much I love him?
'Cause it's your job now to tell him!
I already miss him... I'd do anything to kiss him...
To hold him and embrace the mere presence of him.
I can only hope for one of these days
He comes back to me, this time to stay.
To find it deep within his heart
To give me the chance for a brand new start!
Dedicated to my unborn child. 2006

Losing A Baby Isn't Easy
I never got to hold you,
Or kiss your little head,
Or watch you sleeping soundly
All snuggled in your bed.
I can't count your tiny fingers
Or your even smaller toes.
I won't see your smile
Or your cute little button nose.
You're gone too soon - we don't even know
If you're a girl or boy.
Our hearts are filled with sorrow
When they should be full of joy.
I know you are in heaven,
Where there is no pain or tears.
You'll never get hurt or sick.
In heaven there are no fears.
And though I'm sad you're not here right now
For us to hold today,
I know we'll hold you in our arms
When we're in heaven with you someday.Latest Shared Story

We don't want to cry anymore,
But the pain won't go away.
Our hearts are torn in two
Because our baby couldn't stay.
We don't want to cry anymore.
God had other plans for you.
Mommy and Daddy will get through this someday,
But right now our world is blue.
We don't want to cry anymore.
We never thought we'd be torn apart.
Even though we can't hold you in our arms,
We will always hold you in our hearts.
We don't want to cry anymore.
Our Angel, there was nothing we could do.
Mommy and Daddy will miss you so much,
And never forget, we will always love you.Latest Shared Story
I found out I was pregnant with our 6th child very early on, the day my period was due. We had been trying for a boy. At 12 weeks, I found out through chromosome testing that this would be...
Two pink lines, we knew it was true,
Sooner than later we would meet you.
I yelled for your Daddy and smiled just so.
He stood there in shock and a glorious glow.
We made lots of phone calls and shared our great news.
I had lots of symptoms and even some clues.
Then one day as I was taking out the trash,
Something came over me and I knew in a flash
Everything was wrong and I prayed it wasn't so,
So I called up your Daddy and said we must go
To the hospital to check on your stats.
Waiting so patiently for the results to come back,
We were told the bleeding was normal, you were just fine.
Worrying uncontrollably because you were mine,
Waiting for the doctor seemed to take forever.
I guess she just thought she was being so clever.
Up on the screen we could see your silhouette.
The doctor made a grave face, and I said no, not yet.
"There is no heartbeat," are the words we dreaded most.
The tears started to fall and I felt like a ghost.
I wanted to run, and I wanted to hide.
I wanted you there standing at my side.
I long now to hold you and hear your soft cries,
Play with your belly and hear your faint sighs.
Never will I have the chance to kiss your sweet lips,
Wrap your sweet legs around my soft hips.
I know you are in Heaven and safe you will always be,
But oh, I long to touch the baby I will never see.Latest Shared Story

Although We Never Met
I never saw your twinkling eyes
Or touched your precious feet.
I never shared a tiny yawn
Or rocked you fast asleep.
I never kissed your tiny hands
Or saw your little smile.

But I held you for a while.
Although I never saw your face
Or heard your precious laughter,
You're still my child whom I love
And will forever after.Latest Shared Story

How To Grieve After A Miscarriage
Big bright star.
My precious babies,
You're not so far.
When I am sad and
feeling so alone,
I close my eyes and know
you are in Heaven's home.
Every day my heart aches for you.
How do I heal? I don't know what to do.
Why? I just don't understand.
Anticipation, love, so many future plans.
You were gone before I knew.
Each day is a struggle for me to get through.
Oh, my angels in the bright blue sky
Mommy and Daddy love you, and tears we always cry.
My babies are now heaven's angels so blessed and true.
Only God knew the plans he had for you.Latest Shared Story

Would you wear pink or would you wear blue?
I'll never know
or hear your sweet coo
or see those tiny little fingers,
how the thoughts of you just linger.
Does the pain ever end?
Where do I begin to mend
this broken heart
from the all pain it has felt?
All I can ask is why?
Why were you given wings to fly
When you had feet to walk,
And a sweet little mouth to one day talk?
How I still feel you,
knowing there is nothing else I can do.
But just remember
How once, you were you!Latest Shared Story

14. StillGrief And Pain After A Miscarriage
My body is still birthing,
But nothing is to show.
The little life that was to be
Left my body days ago.
My body is still bleeding
Like a casualty took place,
And I mourn the ever-lingering loss
As I imagine a what-if face.
My body is still weeping
Even if no tears are cried.
Despite the plastered grit and grin,
My pain feels impossible to hide.
My body is still broken,
At least that's what I perceive.
What should have been your safest place,
Instead leaves me to grieve.
My body is still aching,
Shuddering, and unkind,
Leaving in place of your still life-
A heartbreak for the rest of mine.Latest Shared Story

I will never get to hold you,
To keep you warm and safe.
Never see your eyes twinkle,

In every ray of sunshine,
In every rain drop tear.

But now I need to let you go
So that I can start to cope.Latest Shared Story

Sadness And Healing After Loss Of An Unborn Baby
I only had you for a little while.
I was never able to see your smiles,
Yet I thank God for the little time we had,
Even though when you left, I was sad.
You were so precious and small, little ones.
I wouldn't have cared if you were daughters or sons.
I held you within my womb, though not for long.
I was so happy to be your mom.
But God was ready for you to go,
Even though I wanted to see you so.
You died, little ones, within my womb,
And your enclosures of life became a tomb.
I was never able to name you.
I was never able to hold you.
I was never able to feel you breathe.
I was never able to give you the love you need.
I was never able to say goodbye.
Just thinking about it makes me cry,
But you are still a part of our family,
And we all love you; siblings, daddy and me.
I await the day when I shall see you again,
When my life ends, and the others sing requiem.
I pray I'll be in heaven, and there I'll come see you,
Where you, my little angels, play under skies so blue.Latest Shared Story
I am sorry for her loss. Yes, I do hope this helped!
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

Poem About Thinking Of What Could Have Been
Why when you can't have something, is it all you can think of?
The mothers to-be with bumps,
Babies in prams,
Toddlers with their smiles and tantrums,
Young children you can at last reason with,
Proud parents beaming at each other - look; we made that!
No bump. Not anymore.
Maybe never. Hopefully someday.
The hint of one. Twice now but never fulfilled.
Hopes and dreams stopped in their tracks;
No pram or crib buying for us,
No touching of a bump or the inquisitive questions;
When are you due? How do you feel? Boy or girl?
Empty. Lost. Alone. Sad.
Sympathetic friends and family.
No words can be found.
I understand. I wouldn't have known either.
How can you grieve something that never was?
No breath. No sound. No presence.
I grieve the possibility.
The what could have been and what wasn't.
A son? A daughter? Who knows?
Those smiling parents don't mean to hurt.
What have they gone through to get there?
I hope not much.
A physical pain wouldn't hurt as much as this.
So I smile at them, say the right things,
Coo over their newborns and laugh at their toddlers' antics.
I buy the baby gifts for the mum-to-be friends,
Ask all the questions I long to be asked.
They smile in return;
Nothing anyone can say.
I and so many others carry the weight around with us.
Will it happen again?
The hope followed by the deep disappointment?
Will I ever be a mother?
I'd be a good mother.
Will I make my partner a father?
He'd be a good father.
All I want.
All I can think of.Latest Shared Story

19. What IfsPoem About Loss Of Twin Pregnancy
Two faint lines,
A few days late.
Excitement is an understatement,
Couldn't wait to save the date.
A new little life
Growing inside of me.
The mind began to wonder
With all possibilities.
A true gift from God,
A blessing from above.
Mummy and Daddy smiled.
You'd be safe with all our love.
My tummy kept on growing,
I was convinced there was maybe two,
But either way, I didn't mind;
I just couldn't wait to meet you.
So we booked an early scan
To see out little bean,
But you were smaller than expected.
No heartbeat could be seen.
We cried and rang the doctors,
Who booked another scan.
They confirmed that there were two of you,
But things weren't going according to plan.
Twin babies in the womb,
One bigger than the other.
Still no heartbeats seen on the screen,
Devastated, lost and lonely mother.
We were told to wait a week
To see if you both progressed,
So patiently we waited,
Truly putting faith to the test.
Of course we prayed to God
To breathe these babies life.
A full week went past in hope.
The next scan revealed more strife.
Both sleeping in the same sac,
Unfortunately neither of you had grown.
But Mummy's body showed no signs.
She never would have known.
A missed miscarriage they say,
An abortion of the womb,
But nothing takes away what's happened,
Our babies gone too soon.
So I cry and weep in sorrow,
Think about what could have been.
So blessed to carry both of you,
Problems couldn't have been foreseen.
For now I grieve in silence.
At night I cry with pain.
You're gone but not forgotten.
My heart will never be the same.
Thank you for choosing us.
We loved your presence within me,
You'll always be our favourite "what ifs."
Love always, Mummy and Daddy.Latest Shared Story

Pain Of A Lost Pregnancy
Your first Christmas came without you.
You're the unopened secret screams.
We carry you in our broken hearts all day
And unwrap you in our dreams.
I see you in every bulging belly,
In every mother's thoughtless kiss.
I see you in empty baby shoes.
I see you in that, I see you in this.
You're in every "why can't that be me?"
And the tears hidden in my car.
You're the missing piece of every minute
...I wonder where you are.
You were here before you weren't.
There was a future with you in it.
Now you're the broken parts of us
And the missing piece of every minute.
