More Poems about losing a child

DISCLAIMER:  I don't mean this to hurt anyones feelings or to bring up painful feelings, if you are sensitive to this subject please do not read.  I just hope that what I've written may help someone else who has experienced a loss.  My first Son Joey was born at 36 weeks stillborn due to cord strangulation.  

OUr Special Little Angel

A tiny little miracle, our precious baby boy
Who never made it into this world, No life did he enjoy
Yet in the months in which he grew, Deep within my womb
He touched us in a million ways, Our love he helped renew
He gave us hope for new beginnings, Whenever they may be
He taught us how to live again, and set our spirits free
He showed us how to treat each day, as if it were our last
To keep the lord within our hearts, and learn from all that's past
We never had a moment, to gaze into his eyes
There were no warm hellos, Only heartbroken good-byes
The moments that we shared with him, Weren't full of sorrow and despair
Bu joy that we so love him, and he knew how much we care
Even though he's gone on now, to be an angel for our Lord
He lives on within our memories, for now and ever more.

The Greatest Gift of All

Lord, you've given us, a gift so small and pure
A life so short and innocent, preserved forever more
Lord, we give you in return, the soul of our precious boy
and though we love him desperately, his purity is yours
Lord, we thank you for sparing him, the pain this world endures
Though our arms may ache for him, we know his spirit soars.
Lord we may not understand, just why he couldn't stay
We'll keep his memories alive, through each and every day
Lord our pain is deep, and tears fall hard and long
We'd love to have him here with us, but he's now where he belongs
Lord you blessed us with our baby boy, and though his life was short
He brought us joy and happiness, and he lives on within on our hearts.

that poem made me cry. i know what you're going through and it's the worst feeling in the world. im only 17 and i had my baby at sixteen. ii went through labor and she was born one day before her actual due date. Weighing 7lbs. 4 1/2 oz. 19inches long, Kenzie Raylee Shultz died 45 minutes after being born on June 9th 2007. After an autoposy, there is no reason of why she died. The angels just took her. This is a good helpful poem. I'm right there with ya...

Hey, GA, you should share that first poem with Natalie (on that blog address you visited about the woman who gave birth to a stillborn just last week---btw, I saw the comment you left her and while she hasn't ever responded to a comment I've made, and I do not blame her or mind whatsoever, I'm sure it touched her to hear your story if she didn't tell you that herself).

Did you write those poems yourself???

Thank  you for those poems, they are beautiful. I cried for my baby too...Zane Douglas.  Did everyone else on here name their babies too?  I'm just curious, bc some ppl think you shouldn't, but I could not deny my son the name that was rightfully his.  I'm glad we all have a place we can come to and talk about these things.

this is the poem that my mother in law recited at my baby girl funeral.  This was passed out at her funeral.  I'm sorry for your loss... if you need to talk just write me,  Anita.

                                          A BABY"S SECRET
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
                                        I'm just a little person;
                                   And I didn't quite make it there;
                                   I went straight to be with Jesus
                                    And I'm waiting for you here.
                                 Don't you fret about me, Mommy,
                                 I'm of all God's lambs most blest;
                                        I'd have loved to stayed
                                              there with you,
                                       But our shepherd know's
                                                  whats best.
                                     Many dwelling here where I live
                                          Waited year to enter in;
                                   Struggled through a world of sorrow
                                   And their lives were marred with sin.
                                   So sweet Mommy don't you sorrow,
                                   Chase the gloom and wipe the tears;
                                    I went straight to Jesus's bosom
                                     May your heartache disappear.

After we put her to rest I was heart broken.  I used to read this and cry my eyes out.  Keep your chin up... they are at peace.  It took me 6 months of anti depressants to come to that conclusion.  I'm praying for you and I'm very sorry for your loss.  God Bless.                                                    Anita Rachelle DeVall

I happened to stumble upon this website. We lost our baby Kennedi Diane April 7th this year. Its been hard. I honestly don't know that I have completely let myself take in all that has happened. I can put on a great front and  then just come home and cry myself to sleep. I feel so guilty not going by to visit her everyday.I feel stupid sometimes because I go out there and I know shes not really there. Shes with God and I know I will see her again one  day. I still feel like its all been one long nightmare.

I lost my baby girl Lusia at 34 weeks on July 9, 2010.    Today, July 24, 2010 was suppose to be her due date.  I am trying to be a strong woman, especially for my husband and kids.  My husband and I had planned that we would stop having kids after our baby Lusia.  I know we can always have another one again sooner or later but it will NEVER replace our baby Lusia.  I miss her so much-every second of every day.  Losing a child is a pain that no words can describe.  I love her so much.  I will never forget her!  I know she's in God's hands now so I should not worry because she was born to be our little angel from Heaven.  I pray for all those who have lost a child, be strong and may God bless you.

I just lost my son Javonn at 34 weeks, On October 7,2010. My boyfriend and I was looking forward to being parents and bringing our son home. He was  our first baby, we know that one day we will have other children. It is just so hard to know that our son is gone. We know he is with the Lord and his our little angel, looking after us. I am taking it day by day, asking God to give me the power to get through this time of sorrow.

I found out at 3 weeks that I was pregnant. they hadjust told us a few weeks before that we were probably going to have to use artificial insemination to get pregnant. at 5 1/2 weeks I had my first ultrasound...twins! I had never felt more blessed. 7 1/2 wks all is well. 9 1/2 wks baby B is fading. oh how we cried knowing we would only get 1. 21 weeks and 4 days...start having a strange discharge. go to the dr and she can see our baby's membranes. get sent to a specialist. tells me there's no chance and that there is a major infection. they tell me they have to induce me. they warn me there is no chance. I pray and pray that they are wrong and that he is a week further along than they think, that's all he needed. 1 more week until there would have been lung development. 1 week and our beautiful baby boy would have had a shot.7/6/13 21 wks and 6 days Noah Raymond we love you and miss you. I pray that you are happy with your twin and thank god everyday that I was able to hold you even though you were already gone. the only way I feel like I will be able to smile again is if i can get pregnant and carry him or her until it is ready for this world and i can watch it grow. i pray everyday for strength of anyone who has lost a child. I've never felt more lost
