Stillbirth Poems - Asleep
This very moving little stillbirth poem illustrates that a mother's love lasts forever.
Slumber sweetly little one
Upon your dusty bed,
The earth be both your blanket
And pillow for your head.
When the long, dark night is over
And heaven begins its reign,
I promise you my darling
I will see you again.
~ Wendy Sisson
