Miscarriage Poems - Every Night
This very moving miscarriage poem was sent to us by Katrina who wrote it while she was going through her 3rd miscarriage. She sent it to us in the hope it would bring comfort to other parents.
She cried herself to sleep last night,
Thinking of me again,
With a broken heart and tears in her eyes,
And the pain that never ends.
I reached out a hand to her,
And wiped the tears away,
I know she can not see me,
But here is where I'll stay.
My mother loves me dearly,
I know this to be true,
For I am always with her,
If only she knew.
I watch her wipe the tears away,
I see her put on that smile,
She says honestly I'm okay,
And it works for awhile.
For I am with her all the time,
And every night's the same,
She lays her head down to rest,
And the crying starts again.
I stroke her face and kiss her cheek,
And whisper in her ear,
It's time to go to sleep now, mummy,
I am always near.
I hold her hand and and tell her very night,
I love you with all my heart too,
Don't worry, mummy, I'm ok,
I just really miss you.
I know I left too soon mummy,
I never breathed your air,
But it's ok, mummy, I promise,
I know it seems unfair.
Every night next to you,
Here is where I'll stay,
Until that time we meet again,
And in your arms I'll get to lay.
