I didn’t want another baby. I wanted you.
I held my face in the sun light praying for the energy to feel. To feel anything but this pain that overwhelmes me. This hurt that overtakes my very being.
Scrapping whatever happiness I can find to fuel my existence. I’m dying to survive.
Crying through broken smiles and invisible tears. Hiding this storm in my heart that only I see.
I cry for the two babies I have lost, for the hearts that no longer beat inside of me. I muster up the will to go on but emptiness fills the void that has manifested in their absence.
The kind but angering words of strangers only pull me back further into the burrow I have created for myself to hide. The lack of understanding has enriched this anger I have festered in. He/She is no longer living inside of me but this love goes on.
You just don’t understand.
I never held it or heard it cry and I wasn’t ready to say goodbye. I held all these hopes and plans that never will come to pass.
I cry for her in the night.
It hurts so much, and no one can make it right.
Though they try, with kind words and reassurance of at least you can have another….
But…..you just don’t understand.
I don’t want another. I wanted her. I wanted the feeling of fullness that my tummy felt when I knew she was growing inside. I wanted to know that my body could be the safety that she needed in order to grow. The ultimate betrayal when your body cannot sustain the life you love.
The embarrassment and rejection runs deep. You have nothing to be embarrased about, they say.
You just dont understand.
I’m sorry that you didnt make it.
If love alone could have saved you,
You never would have died.
I know the pain that drowns my soul, What I was forced to face.
Drowning in puddles of blood, searching for your face.
They just dont understand.
God doesn’t make mistakes.
But that won’t soften the worst blow.
Or make my heart not ache.
I didn’t get a chance to say “Hello.”
you never said “Goodbye.”
I didn’t think that I could feel
so sad, lost and forlorn.
I never knew God chose his Angels
before some of them were born.
Because to be honest, you just dont understand.
They say love is blind, and you made this true
I never got to place you in an outfit either pink or blue
A 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. you were 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, my dreams were gone away
The deepest pain I’ve ever felt, was when I heard our baby died today.
You just dont understand
With footprints left upon my hearts, he/she gently took their leave
I’m left with nothing but regret and only time to grieve and with each word of sorrow
my teardrops fall like rain,
The anger and resentment are mixed with guilt and pain,
I have to look to heaven for a sign in order to help search out a course
Where love can teach acceptance and eliminate my remorse
My body will eventually accept the truth, that now my baby’s gone
But in my heart, my Angel, you live on.
