Little Angel

   October is pregnancy and infant loss awareness month.  On October 1st a memory walk for the many brief lives lost will be held near where I live.  I am pleased to be a part of this special event.  I am going to read this poem I wrote for all little angels and their parents, from my mother's heart to theirs.  Bless us all.   

Rock-a-bye sweet baby,
In the angels’ arms,
Lovingly held and sheltered,
Safe from any harms.

I long for my arms to hold you,
There is such an empty place,
I was counting every day,
Until I’d see your little face.

You were growing within me,
With all my love and care,
I was anticipating our life together,
And everything we’d share.

I bought you baby blankets,
Adorable clothes and tiny shoes,
Your room was freshly painted,
All waiting just for you.

We had your name selected,
From within our family tree,
Another generation to cherish,
We were awaiting joyously.

I loved you every moment,
 You were nestled beneath my heart,
I’ll remember you forever,
And all the dreams you were a part.

Laugh and play in Heaven,
Nurtured by a divine hand,
Feel my love surround you,
As I struggle to understand.

Thank-you darling angel,
For however brief the time,
That I was blessed to have you,
My precious baby mine.
