“Stillborn”

 

The devastation that you bear
Causing your heart to rip and tear
I know there’s nothing I can say
That can take this pain away

The reason for this parting you don’t know
At times life can hit with a mighty blow
Wrenching deep down into your core
Changing your life forever more

In the days, months and years ahead
Through tumultuous emotions you’ll be lead
In time acceptance will seep through
Knowing there was nothing you could do

All I can hope is that you feel
The love that can help you heal
From so many close and far
Who care about how you are

Our thoughts, love and prayers are with you
Though there’s nothing physical we can do
So we all embrace you in pure love
To help protect you like a glove

Your precious little one
Who’s physical life never begun
Will always be in your heart
And you’ll never be apart

I would like to share with you
My beliefs, though you might think untrue
In time, the words I hope will bring
A ‘Light’ to ease your suffering

You felt their presence in the womb
Just as though they were in the room
Their core essence you could feel
Spiritual energy is truly real

We are Spiritual Beings first and bodies last
When on this Earth a spell is cast
To make us forget the plans we made
With other Souls a path we laid

Your special little Angel agreed with you
To bring an experience so raw and true
Of the sanctity of a non-physical life
That would at first cut you like a knife

You both knew you would always share
A connection, though they wouldn’t be there
Living the life you envisioned and planned
Through pregnancy, before death played its hand

Your dreams of happiness were crushed
As this tragedy unfolded and rushed
Into the depths of your very Being
To change forever your way of seeing

Sadly, some never wade the loss and grief
Pinning for years with little relief
Turning to addictions to ease the pain
Looking for answers and reasons to blame

Others, though hurting and feeling the loss
Know they have the courage and support to cross
The bridge over the river of perpetual sorrow
Glimpsing there’s always a brighter tomorrow

They know their Angel will travel on
Growing in Spirit, but never ‘gone’
Always hearing every thought and prayer
Throughout their ‘lives’ they continue to share

The limit of sight should never be
A definition of reality
Your little one is never far away
Although you can’t see them here today

It is through an uplifted, loving heart
That it is possible to even start
Connecting a stronger Spiritual link
It’s all to do with the way you think

In your dreams, in bed at night
You can visit the world of Light
And hold your precious little one
Until the dawning of the sun

I believe your path is the most difficult there is to face
With not even minutes of a life to treasure and retrace
So I send my Love, Light, Blessings and Prayers to you
Asking Heavenly Assistance to guide you through

      Thank you for your heartfelt words Linda, I really appreciate your comment and it’s wonderful to know that we are aligned in our thoughts of life and Spirit. I had not shared this poem (apart from the parents I wrote it for) until the other day, but I hope now it will bring a little light to others or at least give ‘food for thought’ as I know not everyone would see this great loss in the way we do.
      God Bless ❤ ❤ ❤
