 "An angel in the book of life wrote down my babies birth & whispered as she shut the book... too beautiful for earth"

 

To a Baby who was Never Born

A life inside me, a love so strong.
She died inside me, but the love lives on.
It broke my heart for her to go.
I love her, I need her like she'll never know.
I never held her, or heard her cry,
And I wasn't ready to say goodbye.
I never dressed her in tiny clothes,
Or saw her smile as I tickled her toes.
I cry for her in the night.
It hurts so much, and no one can make it right.

 

1999 Amy Douglas

 


My Child

Little feet
Little fingers
Little ears and nose

 

So precious, so innocent
not yet knowing what life holds

 

Much to learn, much to see
much to hear, much to feel

 

Uncorrupted, undefiled
no hate, no malice
no prejudice, no deception

 

Loving, wanting
adoring demanding

 

Two weeks from today
would have been the day
Two weeks from today
a joyous birthday

 

I miss you my child
my beloved first born.

 

Another day, another time
we shall be

 

Tenesia Stevenson 

 


Sweet Baby Girl

Sweet Baby girl in heaven above,
God sent you to us with much love,
Not knowing what pain it would cause.
I deal with it just because.
The few moments I had you in my arms,
Will last me til the end of time,
Til I see and know you were really mine.
All my love I send to you,
In hopes you wont be blue.
Oh my sweet angel,
Look down on me,
Take this pain and set me free.
I long to see you in the future,
To hold you and kiss you,
And show you I really missed you.

 

Anna M. Lewis

 


Our Baby

An empty space where life once stirred
My eyes were not yet seeing
Where once my heartbeat shared a tone
with a small and fragile being

 

So scarcely formed yet still a life
A dream, a hope, a promise
Our plans were changed to now include
This new life thrust upon us

 

Then just as quickly as it came
Our dreams were gone away
The deepest pain I've ever felt
Our baby died today

 

With footprints left upon our hearts
She gently took her leave
We're left with nothing but regret
And only time to grieve

 

There was no service to be held
No mourning time required
No songs of longing and despair
No words to be inspired

 

We're simply told to bare the pain
"It's nature's way" they say
I can't forget our baby moved
inside me yesterday

 

And with each word of sorrow
my teardrops fall like rain
The anger and resentment
are mixed with guilt and pain

 

I look to heaven for a sign
to help search out a course
Where love can teach acceptance
and eliminate remorse

 

My body will accept the truth
that now our baby's gone
But in our hearts our Angel
everlastingly lives on!

 

Teri M. Stuckmann
1995

 


Josie's Angel

Now your an angel, even before you were born.
I know your in heaven, but my heart is torn.
I had only four months, to celebrate your life.
The wonder of what you may have been, How I never got to hold you tight.
When they told me your heart had stopped, I wanted to go with you.
But I knew I had to be strong, and hold on.
For god has taken my angel to a place far beyond.

 

Johanna M. Bailey

 


My Little Angel

I felt your presence there inside of me,
nestled soft and warm;
Sweet scent of baby's breath,
precious words left unadorned.

 

I saw your tiny heartbeat,
then I knew that you were fine;
A perfect baby we created,
one that would be mine.

 

Then that tragic day it came
there was nothing I could do,
Only wait and hope
for the precious life of you.

 

Yes in the beginning
your daddy was afraid;
Only he would love you unconditional
and never run away.

 

He loved you more this I do know,
as he cried for you that day,
When the doctor said that you were gone,
daddy wanted you to stay.

 

He would have held you close to him,
and see your perfect form,
A gift of daddy's love,
would have kept you safe and warm.

 

Only now you are an angel over me
beautiful and bare,
My heart would hurt if you cried for me
and mommy was not there.

 

Still we are together in my heart and memories,
You are still a part of my memory.

 

Rest gentle now 'sweet baby' there is no pain
you are never alone,
I know you are with the guiding angels
in you peaceful home.

 

I will come with you someday
only now is not my time,
Then we will be together again
again you will be mine.

 

Rhonda
1998

 


I'll Hold you in Heaven

From the very beginning I loved you,
As I made plans to hold you and rock you:
You were tiny and helpless as you lay in my womb,
But something went wrong and soon you were gone;
My young heart was broken, my tears fell like rain,
I'd never known such heartache and pain.

 

I wonder who you look like, me or your dad,
Do you have my smile and his eyes?
Would you have been big and tall or tiny and small?
We had dreams for you that reached to the skies.
It was long, long ago and I still miss you so,
Thanks to Jesus, I'll see you in heaven.

 

I'll hold you in heaven someday,
When my trials on earth pass away;
The angels have rocked you, the Father watches over you,
I know you're waiting for me;
I never could hold you or tell you "Goodbye",
But I'll hold you in heaven someday.

 

In loving memory of Darrell Keith and Melody Joy Taylor.

Never

I'll never get to see your precious face;
or whisper words to make you feel safe
I'll never get to hold you tight
when you can't sleep at night
I'll never get to sing to you a sweet lullaby,
to calm you down when you cry
I'll never get to fall asleep with you in my arms,
all bundled in a blanket to keep you warm
I'll never get to hear you laugh and giggle
or see you little toes wiggle
There are many things I will never get to do,
but the hardest is not being with you.

 

K. Fugleberg

 


Love in Every Tear

O precious, tiny, sweet little one
You will always be to me.
So perfect, pure, and innocent
Just as you were meant to be.
We dreamed of you and of your life
And all that it would be.
We waited and longed for you to come.
And join our family.
We never had the chance to play,
To laugh, to rock, to wiggle.
We long to hold you, touch you now
And listen to you giggle.
I'll always be your mother,
He'll always be your dad.
You will always be our child,
The child that we had.
But now you're gone...but yet you're here
We'll sense you everywhere.
You are our sorrow and our joy,
There's love in every tear.
Just know our love goes deep and strong
We'll forget you never--
The child we had, but never had
And yet will have forever!

Goodnight

"Mommy and daddy don't cry for me
To walk this earth was not meant to be
I'm in God's house you see
I watch over you every day
I know that you love me in a
very special way
When you look in the sky

on a clear star filled night
I'll be the star that is shining so bright
I love you mommy and daddy

Goodnight"

I Miss You

I miss you, my sweet little girl.
You were supposed to be my entire world.
When they told me you had died in the womb,
I had to deliver you anyway.
I watched everyone hold you in the room.
And I knew they would still love you, everyday.
I thought it wasn't fair.
Could God not see us hurt, did he not care?
Now I know that this is the way it was supposed to be.
And you will always be the best thing to ever happen to me.
