A Letter to my Angel

Dear baby girl,

Whose eyes would never see,

Though you never cried aloud,

You are a part of me.


The moment that I first held you,

Would also be my last,

But I kissed your forehead just the same,

As minutes flew by too fast.


I keep your picture on my shelf,

I kept prints of your hands and feet,

I kept the cards and memories,

I kept your hospital blanket and sheet.


I was supposed to kiss you goodnight,

Not kiss you goodbye.

I was supposed to cry in joy,

Not cry after feeling you die.


I was supposed to do so much with you,

Like birthdays, vacations, and more,

I was supposed to watch you grow so big,

Not hold your urn while lying on the floor.


Dear baby girl, I hope that you know,

You were loved all your short life long,

I think of you when I wake, sleep, and breathe,

And for you, I’ll try to stay strong.


Dear baby girl, dancing in heaven,

Give hugs to the little angels with you,

Each one has a hurting mommy on earth,

Who is missing her little angel too.

This is such a beautiful poem and after reading it made me feel better someone else thinks the same way we do. Two weeks ago my husband and I lost our little girl at 34 weeks. I’m feeling as though I literally can’t go on and doing anything even breathing feels impossible. Thanks for sharing your poem to help others.

    I am so sorry for your loss. Loss is difficult no matter what the gestation, but I understand the unique pain of preparing for a child and having all their furniture and life ready just to say goodbye. The weight of grief does not grow any lighter with time, but eventually you will develop the strength to carry it. It has been nearly a year since my daughter was stillborn, and I still cry for the baby who’s birthday I won’t be celebrating next month. I cannot take your pain away, but I hope I can carry my own along side you so you know you are not alone. I am glad my poem could bring some comfort. That’s why I joined Through the Heart. I don’t want anyone else to feel as alone as I did after my loss. Sending you hugs and love during this time!
