    Just thought I'd share these two poems with you girls.....Although guarenteed to make you shed a tear, they are comforting in the sense that although we have lost our babies..........they are still with us.....in a way.

    Whenever you are feeling sad
    Or kind of “baby blue”
    Remember that you’re not alone
    I’ll always be with you
    Although I know it makes you sad
    That I had to depart
    As long as there is love
    I‘ll be living in your heart

    Whenever you remember me
    With happiness and love
    The angels sing me lullabyes
    In heaven and above
    And though you cannot hold me
    Or brush and comb my hair,
    Do not doubt for a minute
    That I am still right there.

    For I am with you always,
    In the shadows of your mind,
    And if you look around you
    It’s me that you will find
    I’m the one that pulls your heartstrings
    When you here a baby cry,
    I’m the one that lifts your spirits
    On wings of a butterfly

    I’m the one who blows you kisses
    On a warm summer breeze
    I’m the who whispers in your ears
    In the sighing of the trees
    It’s me that you hear laughing
    In a bubbly mountain brook
    Yes,I am all around you
    Wherever you may look

    WHEN TOMORROW STARTS WITHOUT ME
    When tomorrow starts without me, and I'm not there to see,
    If the sun should rise and find your eyes, all filled with tears for me;
    I wish so much you wouldn't cry, the way you did today,
    While thinking of the many things, we didn't get to say.
    I know how much you love me, as much as I love you,
    And each time that you think of me, I know you miss me too.
    But when tomorrow starts without me, please try to understand,
    That an angel came and called my name, and took me by the hand;
    And said my place was ready, in heaven far above,
    And that I'd have to leave behind, all those I dearly love.
    But as I turned to walk away, a tear fell from my eye,
    For my life had not long started, and I didn't want to die.
    I had so much to live for, so much to learn and do,
    It seemed almost impossible, that I was leaving you.
    I thought of all the times to come, the good one's and the bad,
    I thought of all the love we'd share, it made me feel so sad.
    If I could spend just one day, or even a little while,
    I'd tell you how I love you, and I'd show you my big smile.
    But then I fully realised, that this could never be,
    For emptiness and memories, would take the place of me.
    And when I thought of worldly things, I might miss come tomorrow,
    I thought of you, and when I did, my heart was filled with sorrow.
    But when I walked through Heaven's gates, I felt so much at home,
    When God looked down and smiled at me, upon his golden throne.
    "This is eternity he said, and all I've promised you,
    Today for life on earth is passed, but here it starts anew.
    I promise no tomorrow, but today will always last,
    And since each day's the same day, there's no longing for the past.
    My child you was to special, I had to set you free,
    So won't you take my loving hand, and share my life with me?"
    So when tomorrow starts without me, mummy don't think we're far apart,
    For every time you think of me, I'm right here, in your heart.
