Our Baby

Our Baby

An empty 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
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
Our dreams were gone away
The deepest pain I’ve ever felt
Our baby died today

With footprints left upon our hearts
She gently took her leave
We’re left with nothing but regret
And only time to grieve

There was no service to be held
No mourning time required
No songs of longing and despair
No words to be inspired

We’re simply told to bare the pain
“It’s nature’s way” they say
I can’t forget our baby moved
inside me yesterday

And with each word of sorrow
my teardrops fall like rain
The anger and resentment
are mixed with guilt and pain

I look to heaven for a sign
to help search out a course
Where love can teach acceptance
and eliminate remorse

My body will accept the truth
that now our baby’s gone
But in our hearts our Angel
everlastingly lives on!
