I love You Little One
Today is National Pregnancy and Infant Loss Remembrance Day, so here is a poem I wrote for all the women who have lost a child through miscarriage. I have several friends who have had a miscarriage along with my mom as well who has had two, so I wrote this with them in mind, but I pray this would bless all who have lost a child too soon.
Tiny little toes, tiny little fingers,
Tiny little ears, Tiny little mouth.
Little child, little baby,
I’ll never watch you grow any more.
You’ll never see the light of day.
Never see the moon at night.
Never hear the lullabies I wanted to sing you,
Never fall asleep in my arms,
Never cue, never laugh, never smile,
Not on this earth anyway.
You went to the father’s home to soon,
Or so it feels that way.
There were stories I was going to tell you,
Memories we were going to make.
There were adventures we were going to have
And lessons I was going to teach you.
You were supposed to grow into an adult some day
Or so I thought it was supposed to be that way.
But God has different plans,
Different dreams for your little life.
He formed you and made you,
But only for the womb to live and abide for a time.
But you died and God took you home
And I cried because I could not understand.
I had waited and I had longed
For the day we would meet face to face.
But God has different plans than mans.
Why did God give you life for such a short time?
Why did he make you, only to take you home?
That is something I may not ever understand.
I love you little one,
And some day I will hold you again,
But this time in my arms and not just in the womb,
But waiting sometimes feels so long.
