    I'm not a big religious person but just read this poem and thought I'd share it as even though it made me cry and it also helped me smile x

    what makes a mother.

    I thought of you and closed my eyes
    and prayed to god today,
    i asked, "what makes a mother?"
    and i know i heard him say:
    a mother has a baby,
    this we know is true
    but, god, can you be a mother
    when your baby's not with you?
    yes, you can, he replied
    with confidence in his voice,
    i give many women babies,
    when they leave it is not their choice.
    some i send for a lifetime,
    and others for the day,
    and some i send to feel your womb,
    but there's no need to stay.
    i just don't understand this god,
    i want my baby here.
    he took a breath,
    and cleared his throat,
    and then i saw a tear.
    i wish i could show you,
    what your child is doing here...
    if you could see your child smile
    with other children and say,
    "we go to earth to learn our lessons
    of love and life and fear,
    but my mommy loved me so much
    i got to come straight here!"
    i feel so lucky to have a mom who had so much love for me,
    i learned my lessons very quickly,
    my mommy set me free.
    i miss my mommy oh so much
    but i visit her each day.
    when she goes to sleep,
    on her pillow is where i lay.
    i stroke her hair and kiss her cheek,
    and whisper in her ear,
    "mommy, please don't be sad today,
    i'm your baby and i am here"
    so you see my dear sweet one,
    your children are okay.
    your babies are here in my home,
    and this is where they'll stay.
    they'll wait for you with me,
    until your lessons there are through,
    and on the day that you come home,
    they'll be at the gates waiting for you
    so now you see
    what makes a mother,
    it's the feeling in your heart,
    it's the love you had so much of
    right from the very start


    I hope this poem gives a few more people a little comfort xx

    I've shared everything with you guys so now ill share these. I hunted for poems and things for my memorial and these are things we picked. I'm having them printed onto plastic for a memorial garden. They all fit so well I think.


    Sleep tight angel, We love you,
    We wanted you so much,
    A hole will stay within our hearts,
    Where your tiny footprints touched.

    Mummy & Daddy xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
    .......................
    Even the smallest of feet have the power to leave everlasting footprints on this world

    .......................

    An Angel from the Book of Life

    Wrote down my baby's birth,

    And whispered as she closed the book

    "Too Beautiful for Earth"

    ......................

    An Angel Never Dies
    Don’t let them say I wasn’t born,
    That something stopped my heart
    I felt each tender squeeze you gave,
    I’ve loved you from the start.

    Although my body you can’t hold
    It doesn’t mean I’m gone
    This world was worthy, not of me
    God chose that I move on.

    I know the pain that drowns your soul,
    What you are forced to face
    You have my word, I’ll fill your arms,
    Someday we will embrace.

    You’ll hear that it was meant to be,
    God doesn’t make mistakes
    But that wont soften your worst blow,
    Or make your heart not ache.

    I’m watching over all you do,
    Another child you’ll bear
    Believe me when I say to you,
    That I am always there.

    There will come a time, I promise you,
    When you will hold my hand,
    Stroke my face and kiss my lips
    And then you’ll understand.

    Although I’ve never breathed your air,
    Or gazed into your eyes
    That doesn’t mean I never was,
    An Angel never dies.

    I wonder that everyday natalilly! And I've only lost one my heart breaks every time I let my mind wonder! I'm a very emotional person so has hit me very hard and am finding every way I can to mark what has happened even started to make a scrap book hence the poem, so whenever I feel I need to I can look at it and remember and think of my baby! Also giving me something to keep my busy as I currently don't work and hubby is away till November xx

    I sometimes think about what I have done that is so bad that I deserve this so your not alone there. But the thing is the words we hate to hear so much are in fact true. Sometimes these things just happen. There's no reason and we did nothing wrong. I torture myself every day going over every little thing I did to see what I might have done wrong. It gets easier with time I know but boy does it hurt now. hugs to you all xxx

    Our Angel Baby!

    We had to say goodbye to you,
    Before we said hello.
    We never got to tell you,
    How much we love you so.
    We never got to cuddle you,
    Or count your little toes,
    We never got to place a kiss,
    Upon your little nose.
    You'll always be our baby,
    In our hearts you'll always be,
    You are our baby that just wasn't meant to be.
    You are our shining star,
    In our hearts is were you'll stay.
    We will never forget you and
    we'll meet again someday.

    Thank you. I found a similar one on the Internet, changed it and added new verses.
