The following is a poem I wrote after the loss. Since I passed the fetus at home, we planted a memorial garden and we buried the tiny fetus and the poem with it. We wanted to honour the life we so preciously loved.
Will the pain of loosing you ever go away?
You were our first, so desired and wanted and loved.
We were so happy and excited to plan our lives with you in it, so filled with joy
We saw your heart beating; we celebrated the life that you would become
The family that we would be
The love that we would share . . .
Our hopes and dreams were embedded in your everlasting desires
And then our world came crashing down when we realized the life we were celebrating was taken from us
That you were gone …
Never to meet you, play with you, sing to you or hold you
But to always love you . . .
To hold you in a special place in our hearts
To cherish life
To love one another
To find strength to move forward and live life without you in it
We will miss you . . .
