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 your life
And all that it would be
We waited and longed for you to come
And join our family.
But now you're gone... but yet you're here
We 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.

Losing a baby can feel like the most isolating experience in the world and it is something we often don’t talk openly about. If we can let one mother (or father or grandmother) know that she is not alone in her grief, then that is a good thing. You can help us support families experiencing baby loss by submitting your story, by leaving a comment below, and by sharing this post on Facebook or Twitter.Share
