I remember you

The world may never notice
If a rosebud doesn't bloom:
Or even pause to wonder if the petals fall too soon.
But every life that ever forms,
Or ever comes to be
Touches the World in some small way
For all eternity.

The little ones we longed for
Were swiftly here and gone.
But the love that was then planted
Is a light that still shines on.
And though our arms are empty,
Our hearts know what to do
Every beating of my heart says
"I Remember You"

Angel in this book of life

An angel in this book of life
Wrote down your baby’s birth
And whispered,
as she closed the book
'Too beautiful for this earth'

Baby Angel

Our precious baby angel
Our shining star above
You came into our world
And filled our hearts with love

Your perfect little face
Your long hands and toes
The love we feel for you
No one really knows

Never will we forget you
You're forever in our hearts
So spread your beautiful angel wings
And fly away to a new start

These Are My Footprints

These are my footprints so perfect and so small.
These tiny footprints never touched the ground at all.
Not one tiny footprint, for now I have my wings.
These tiny footprints were meant for other things.
You will hear my tiny footprints in the patter of the rain.
Gentle drops like angels tears of joy and not from pain.
You will see my tiny footprints in each butterflies lazy dance.
I’ll let you know I’m with you if you give me just a chance.
You will see my tiny footprints in the rustle of the leaves.
I will whisper names into the wind, and call each one that grieves.
Most of all these tiny footprints are found in mummy’s heart,
Cause even though I’m gone now, we’ll never truly part.

Guardian Angel

There are those who believe
So the story is told,
That at birth you receive
Your own Angel to hold.
You come to this world
On a wing and a prayer,
And through your lifetime
She will always be there.
A guardian Angel
Who will guide what you do,
Her heart filled with love
Sent to watch over you.

As long as

As long as there is sunshine
As long as there is rain,
You'll never be forgotten Precious
we'll always speak you name,
Your time on earth was very brief
Which left our family filled with grief,
Now with angels up above,
we're sending you eternal love.

If I could Have A Lifetime Wish

If I could have a lifetime wish,
A dream that would come true,
I’d pray to God with all my heart
for yesterday and you.

A thousand words can’t bring you back;
I know because I’ve tried.
And neither will a million tears,
I know because I’ve cried.

You left behind my broken heart,
And happy memories too.
I never wanted memories,
I only wanted you.

Angel in my pocket

There's an Angel in my pocket, Everywhere I go,
Just in case I need her, Cause she loves me so.
I never have to walk alone, She's with me everyday.
She watches every step I take, And often leads the way.
No one ever sees her, She's meant for only me.
My special friend from heaven, Came to set me free!

The Butterfly

A butterfly lights beside us like a sunbeam,
and for a brief moment,
its glory and beauty belong to our world.
But then it flies on again,
and though we wish it could have stayed,we feel lucky to have seen it at all.

A Butterfly

A butterfly came floating by and I thought I knew it's face
It landed on my shoulder and spread its wings of lace
I looked and saw it smiling and as it winked and flew away
I'm sure I heard it whisper 'we will meet again one day.'

Gone too Soon 

This was a life that hardly begun
no time to find your place in the sun
no time to do all you could have done
but we loved you enough for a lifetime

No time to enjoy the world and its wealth
No time to take life down off the shelf
no time to sing the song of yourself
though you had enough love for a lifetime

Those who live long endure sadness and tears
but you'll never suffer the sorrowing years
no betrayal, no anger
no hatred, no fears
Just love, only love in your lifetime.

How very softly

How very softly you tiptoed into my world.
Almost silently; only a moment you stayed.
But what an imprint your footprints you have left on our hearts.

Do not stand at my grave and weep

I am not there
I do not sleep
I am in a thousand winds that blow
I am the softly falling snow
I am the gentle showers of rain
I am the fields of ripening grain
I am in the morning hush
I am in the graceful rush
Of beautiful birds in circling flight
I am the starshine of the night
I am in the flowers that bloom
I am in a quiet room
I am in the birds that sing
I am in each lovely thing
Do not stand at my grave bereft I am not there
I have not left
Mary Frye (1905-2004)

Do not stand at my grave and weep (alternate)

Do not stand at my grave and weep
I am not there. I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow.
I am the diamond glints on snow.
I am the sunlight on ripened grain.
I am the gentle autumn rain.
When you awaken in the morning's hush
I am the swift uplifting rush
Of quiet birds in circled flight.
I am the soft stars that shine at night.
Do not stand at my grave and cry;
I am not there. I did not die.

When tomorrow starts without me

When tomorrow starts without me
and I am not here 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 you think of me
I know you'll 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.

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 not worthy 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 my arms,
someday we will embrace.

You'll hear that it was meant to be,
God doesn't make mistakes
But that won't soften your worst blow,
or make your hearts not ache.

I'm watching over all you do,
another child you will 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 will understand.

Although I have never breathed your air,
or gazed into your eyes,
that doesn't mean I 'never was'

Because an angel never dies...

Never far away

I'm Gone now, but I'm still very near.
Death can never separate us.
Each time you feel a gentle breeze,
It's my hand caressing your face.

Each time the wind blows,
It carries my voice whispering your name.
When the wind blows your hair ever so slightly,
Think of it as me pushing a few stray hairs back in place.
When you feel a few raindrops fall on your face,
It's me placing soft kisses.

At night look up in the sky and see the stars shining so brightly.
I'm one of those stars and I'm winking at you and smiling with delight.
For never forget you're the apple of my eye.

Until We Meet Again

My life has changed so very much
Since the day you passed away
I know your safe in Heaven
But I miss you every day.

My thoughts and prayers are with you
And everyday since then
I’ve been holding onto our memories
Until we meet again.

I know someday we’ll meet again
In Heaven up above.
Again we’ll share those special times
Filled with warmth and love.

Some days are such a struggle
But what keeps me on the mend
Is the certainty of believing
Someday we’ll meet again.

Our memories bring such comfort
I hold them oh so close
And our many conversations
Are what I miss the most
I’m sure you know I love you so
And the love and prayers I send
Will wrap around you like a hug
Until we meet again.

To the child of my heart

O precious, tiny sweet little one
You will always be to me
So perfect, pure and innocent
Just as you were meant to be.

We dreamed of you and of your life
And all that it would be
We waited and longed for you to
come and join our family.

We never had the chance to play.
To laugh, to rock, to wiggle
We long to hold you, touch you
And to listen to you giggle.
I'll always be your mother,
He'll always be your dad.
You will always be our child,
the child that we had.

But now you're gone . . .
but yet you're here.
You are our sorrow and our joy,
there's love in every tear.
Just know our love goes deep and strong.
We'll forget you never.
The child we had, but never had,
and yet will have forever.

Just For A Moment

(From A Silent Love, Adrienne Ryan)

Our hands have touched, our paths have crossed
A love is gained, a love is lost
Just for a moment I kissed the face
Of an innocent child I can’t replace.

Just for a moment a maternal touch
Would say the words that meant so much
A soft caress, the gentle tears
That will make those minutes last for years.

Just for a moment, I held your hand
My broken heart in your command
So much to tell you, so little time
Why were you punished, what was the crime?

They took part of me when they took you away
As much as I love you, you weren’t meant to stay
I gave you a hug that for always must last
As facing the future means leaving the past.

Our souls have merged, I live for you
Perhaps I’m living your life too
I will carry on, I can always stand tall
Because just for that moment, I had it all.

We thought of you today

We thought of you today,
But that is nothing new
We thought of you yesterday
And will tomorrow, too
We think of you in silence
And make no outward show
For what it meant to lose you
Only those who love you know
Remembering you is easy
We do it everyday
It's the heartache of losing you
That will never go away.

Don't think of him as gone away

Don't think of him as gone away,
His Journey's just begun.
Life holds so many facets,
This earth is only one.
Just think of him as resting,
From the sorrows and the tears,
In a place of warmth and comfort
Where there are no days and years.
Thinking how he must be wishing
That we could know today,
How nothing but our sorrows
Can really pass away.
And think of him as living
In the hearts of those he touched,
For nothing loved is ever lost
And he was loved so much.

Don't think of her as gone away

Don't think of her as gone away
Her journey has just begun
Life holds so many facts
This earth is only one.
Just think of her as resting.
From the sorrow and the tears.
In a place of warmth and comfort
Where there are no days or years.
Think of how she must be wishing
That she could know today
How nothing but our sadness
Can really pass away.
And think of her as living
In the hearts of those she touched
For nothing loved is ever lost
And she was loved so much.

Stars

Perhaps they are not stars in the sky, but rather openings where our loved ones shine down to let us know they are happy.
-Eskimo Saying

My precious little baby

My precious little baby
I have loved you from the start
You are a tiny miracle
Laying closely to my heart.

Each day I feel your presence
Each day you heart beats softly
As only I could know.

So I'll keep this in a special place
And remember each year through
Of this very special time in my life
The moment I carried you

Miscarriage poems

My Angel Baby

To the baby that I carried
But never seen your eyes
Or tell you how much I loved you
Or ever to hear your cries.
You will never be forgotten.
The excitement we had for your coming.
When I realized I'd never hold you,
The feeling I had was numbing.
My angel baby is who you are.
My angel baby you'll always be.
Your loving memory will live in my heart
So you will always be right here with me.
Just Those Few Weeks
Susan Erlin

For those few weeks

For those few weeks
I had you to myself.
And that seems too short of time
To be changed so profoundly.

In those few weeks
I came to know you...
And to love you.
You came to trust me with your life.
Oh, what a life I had planned for you!

Just those few weeks
When I lost you,
I lost a lifetime of hopes,plans, dreams, and aspirations...
A slice of my future simply vanished overnight.

Just those few weeks
It wasn't enough time to convince others
How special and important you were.
How odd, a truly unique person has recently died
And no one is mourning the passing.

Just a mere few weeks
And no "normal" person would cry all night
Over a tiny, unfinished baby,
Or get depressed and withdraw day after endless day.
No one would, so why am I?

You were just those few weeks my little one
You darted in and out of my life too quickly.
But it seems that's all the time you needed
To make my life so much richer
And give me a small glimpse of eternity.

A life

This was a life
That hadn't begun
No time to find your place in the sun,
No time to do all you could have done,
But we loved you enough for a lifetime,

No time to enjoy the world and its wealth,
No time to take life down off the shelf,
No time to sing the song for yourself,
Though you had enough love for a lifetime,

Those who live long endure sadness and tears,
But you'll never suffer the sorrowing years,
No betrayal, no anger, no hatred, no fears,
Just love-only love in your lifetime.

Somebody

Somebody said it was all for the best;
That something was probably wrong.
Somebody said it was meant to be.
Different verse, same miserable song.

Somebody said,"You can have another!"
As if that would make it alright.
Somebody said,"It was not a real child."
Somebody's not very bright.

Somebody thinks it is helpful
To say when grieving should end.
Somebody showed their true colors.
Somebody isn't a friend.

But somebody said,"I'm sorry"
And sat quietly by my side.
And somebody shared my sorrow
And held my hand when I cried.

And somebody always listened
And called my lost baby by name.
And somebody understood
That I'd never again be the same.

Gwen Flowers

All Those Months

Your little heart beating so strongly
All those months ....... is silent

Your little arms & legs moving so vigorously
All those months ...... are now so still

Your eyes we will never see sparkle
Your voice we will never hear
Your little fingers & toes we will never see grow
Your little lips we will never be able to kiss

We dream so much of holding you close
Of watching you smile & grow
We love you so much although you will never know

Just Those Few Weeks

For just those few weeks I had you to myself.
And that seems too short a time to be changed so profoundly.
In those few weeks, I came to know you... and to love you.
You came to trust me with your life. Oh what a life I had planned for you!

Just those few weeks... then I lost you,
i lost a lifetime of hopes, plans, dreams and aspirations.
A slice of my future simply vanished overnight.

Just those few weeks... It wasn't enough time to convince others how special and important you were.
How odd, a truly unique person has recently died and no one is mourning the passing.
Just a mere few weeks…. And no "normal" person would cry all night
Over a tiny unfinished baby, or get depressed and withdraw day after endless day.
No one would, so why am I??

You were just those few weeks, my little one.
You darted in and out of my life too quickly.
But it seems that's all the time you needed to make my life richer
and to give me a small glimpse of eternity.

Special Angel

There is a special Angel in Heaven
that is part of me.
It is not where I wanted him
but where God wanted him to be.

He was here but just a moment
like a night time shooting star.
And though he is in Heaven
he isn't very far.

He touched the heart of many
like only an Angel can do.
So I send this special message
to the Heaven up above.

Please take care of my Angel
and send him all my love.

The Chain

We little knew that morning
that God was going to call your name.
In life we loved you dearly,
In death we do the same.

It broke our hearts to lose you,
You did not go alone;
For part of us went with you,
The day God called you home.

You left us peaceful memories,
Your love is still our guide;
And though we cannot see you,
You are always at our side.

Our family chain is broken,
And nothing seems the same;
But as God calls us, one by one,
The Chain will link again.

Little Angels

When God calls little children
to dwell with him above,
We mortals sometime question
the wisdom of his love.

For no heartache compares with
the death of one small child
Who does so much to make our world,
seem wonderful and mild.

Perhaps God tires of calling
the aged to his fold,
So He picks a rosebud,
before she can grow old.

God knows how much we need them,
and so he takes but a few
To make the land of Heaven
more beautiful to view.

Believing this is difficult still
somehow we must try,
The saddest word mankind knows will always be "Goodbye."

So when a little child departs
we who are left behind
Must realize God loves children,
Angels are hard to find.

The day God took you home

In tears we saw you sinking,
And watched you pass away.
Our hearts were almost broken,
We wanted you to stay.
But when we saw you sleeping,
So peaceful, free from pain,
How could we wish you back with us,
To suffer that again. It broke our hearts to
lose you, But you did not go alone,
For part of us went with you,
The day God took you home.
Anon

God took him to his loving home

God saw him getting tired, a cure was not to be.
He wrapped him in his loving arms and whispered ‘Come with me.’
He suffered much in silence, his spirit did not bend.
He faced his pain with courage, until the very end.
He tried so hard to stay with us but his fight was not in vain,
God took him to His loving home and freed him from the pain.
Anon

He Only Takes The Best

God saw you getting tired,
And a cure was not to be.
So he put his arms around you,
And whispered, “Come to Me.”

With tearful eyes we watched you,
And saw you pass away.
Although we loved you dearly,
We could not make you stay.

A golden heart stopped beating,
Hard working hands put to rest.
God broke our hearts
To prove to us,

He only takes the best.
