Miscarriage Poems - My Empty Arms
This beautiful miscarriage poem was written by the mother of a baby girl who was sadly miscarried at 15 weeks and 3 days.
My Empty Arms
Empty arms and an empty heart,
My life feels so torn apart.
It's not fair, she should be here,
Oh no, there goes another tear.
I never got to say goodbye,
Why, oh why, did she have to die?
Time has passed, what I wouldn't give,
Just to see my daughter live,
A minute, a hour, or just one day,
I'd give up anything if she could stay.
Maybe I prayed too much, or not enough,
Living in pain is just so tough.
There are no words that can be spoken,
To fix my heart, it's already broken.
Kindness from a stranger, a hug from a friend,
The love of my family, the pain doesn't end.
I'll miss her grow, I'll miss her play,
Maybe I deserve to feel this way.
Nothing to do, nothing can be changed,
Living without her, I feel deranged.
Racing thoughts my faith deceiving,
It's been a while but I'm still grieving.
~ Written by Dionne's mommy, Maxine Cantu
