    Please Be Gentle
    By Jill B. Englar

    Please be gentle with me for I am grieving.
    The sea I swim in is a lonely one
    and the shore seems miles away.
    Waves of despair numb my soul
    as I struggle through each day.
    My heart is heavy with sorrow.
    I want to shout and scream
    and repeatedly ask ‘Why?’
    At times, my grief overwhelms me
    and I weep bitterly,
    so great is my loss.
    Please don’t turn away
    or tell me to move on with my life.
    I must embrace my pain
    before I can begin to heal.
    Companion me through the tears
    and sit with me in loving silence.
    Honor where I am in the journey,
    not where you think I should be.
    Listen patiently to my story,
    I may need to tell it over and over again.
    It’s how I begin to grasp the enormity of my loss.
    Nurture me through the weeks and months ahead.
    Forgive me when I seem distant and inconsolable.
    A small flame still burns within my heart,
    and shared memories may trigger
    both laughter and tears.
    I need your support and understanding.
    There is no right or wrong way to grieve.
    I must find my own path.
    Please, will you walk beside me?


    I sent this poem to many people after I lost Noah. It helped to express how I was feeling as I didn't have the voice to express it myself.

    I found this poem. I dont know the author. The celebrant asked me if I wanted to write something for Hayley. I knew what I wanted to write but I just couldnt put it into words.



    We couldn't wait to hold you
    And see your pretty face.
    To count your little fingers,
    And check your toes are in their place.
    It should have been the happiest day
    To remember all our life.
    But joy had turned to heartache,
    No breath, no beat, no life.
    We will never see you smile,

    Or hear your hearty cry.
    We will never be able to dry your tears,
    Or share your happy times.
    Our precious little Angel,
    We will always know your face.
    In our hearts and stars forever,
    You will always have a place.

    Default after many years i am having a ceremony for my lost little one

    i had a miscarriage 5 years ago (when i was 16) but due to the circumstances at the time it never got acknowledged. Today i will be having a ceremony to bring peace to my baby's spirit. I wrote this poem which i'll be reading today:

    an angel slept close to my heart
    but couldn't stay too long
    Fate held this little hand
    and asked me to stay strong

    A tiny gift and treasure
    I had no chance to meet
    to hold so close
    and count the toes
    on this angels little feet

    when i think about your heart
    beating under mine
    i think about what you'd become
    if only we had time

    mother nature knows what she is doing
    and what is ment to be
    her secret little plans
    may she one day let me see

    a little life so close to mine
    but i'd never hold your hand
    a heartache from within me
    so little will understand

    The world is tough my little one
    and as strong as i know you'd be
    you've been spared the trials of earth
    and sent straight up to be free

    the world couldn't feel your presence
    but i felt it from the start
    and forever while your resting
    you'll be safely in my heart.

    They Say There is a Reason (author unknown)

    They say there is a reason,
    They say that time will heal,
    But neither time nor reason,
    Will change the way I feel,
    For no-one knows the heartache,
    That lies behind our smiles,
    No-one knows how many times,
    We have broken down and cried,
    We want to tell you something,
    So there won't be any doubt,
    You're so wonderful to think of,
    But so hard to be without.

    I wrote this... one night when DH was on night shift, and I was feeling low. Its just my feelings, private and raw.

    10 DEC 10

    I Miss You!
    I long for you.
    Your brothers keep me going.
    Your father keeps me smilling.
    But deep within there is a missing piece,
    A missing link that makes this family complete.
    In my dreams we are close.
    In my dreams I kiss you.
    In my dreams I hold you.
    Beyond my dreams I will always LOVE you.

    Mummy loves you Angel.

    REMEMBERING

    by Elizabeth Dent

    Go ahead and mention my child.
    The one that died, you know.
    Don't worry about hurting me further.
    The depth of my pain doesn't show.
    Don't worry about making me cry.
    I'm already crying inside.
    Help me to heal by releasing
    The tears that I try to hide.
    I'm hurt when you just keep silent,
    Pretending he didn't exist.
    I'd rather you mention my child,
    Knowing that he has been missed.
    You asked me how I was doing.
    I say "pretty good" or "fine".
    But healing is something ongoing.
    I feel it will take a lifetime.

    Some of these have been posted here before I think but I couldnt remember which ones without going through the thread again.


    My Mom is a survivor, or so I've heard it said.
    But I can hear her crying at night when all others are in bed.*
    I watch her lay awake at night and go to hold her hand.
    She doesn't know I'm with her to help her understand.*
    But like the sands on the beach that never wash away...
    I watch over my surviving mom, who thinks of me each day.*
    She wears a smile for others... a smile of disguise!
    But through Heaven's door I see tears flowing from her eyes.*
    My mom tries to cope with death to keep my memory alive.
    But anyone who knows her knows it is her way to survive.*
    As I watch over my surviving mom through Heaven's open door...
    I try to tell her that angels protect me forevermore.*
    I know that doesn't help her... or ease the burden she bears.
    So if you get a chance, go visit her...and show her that you care.*
    For no matter what she says... no matter what she feels.
    My surviving mom has a broken heart that time won't ever heal.

    Tiny Angels

    Tiny Angels rest your wings
    sit with me for awhile.
    How I long to hold your hand,
    And see your tender smile.

    Tiny Angel, look at me,
    I want this image clear....
    That I will forget your precious face
    Is my biggest fear.

    Tiny Angel can you tell me,
    Why you have gone away?
    You weren't here for very long....
    Why is it, you couldn't stay?

    Tiny Angel shook his head,
    "These things I do not know....
    But I do know that you love me,
    And that I love you so".

    ---------------

    How can I say good bye when I never said hello,
    Why does my heart grieve for the one I'll never know?
    You were a part of me for just a little while.
    I grieve because I'll never see the magic in your smile.
    I grieve for all the unsaid words that you will never say.
    I grieve that I will never see you happily at play.
    I grieve for all the lullabies that will remain unsung.
    I grieve because I'll never see your face gleaming like the sun.
    I grieve because you will never know the comfort of my touch.
    I grieve because you will never know that you were loved so much.
    I grieve for all the tomorrows that will never be.
    I grieve because God chose to take you back from me.
    You live among the angels now Your earthly mission done,
    You will be so dearly missed Good-bye my little one

    Author Unknown

    -----------------

    I'll know I'll never see you face
    Or the colour of your hair.
    And I'll never sit and hold you
    Or feed you in a chair.

    I'll never know if you're a girl,
    Or if you were a boy,
    And you'll never have the chance
    To share you brothers toys.

    Though you were only here a moment,
    We will never be apart,
    I'll hold you close forever,
    Safe inside my heart.

    I yearn for you and feel you close
    But as each second passes I feel you go
    You never had a chance to see the sun shine
    Or meet your older brother
    Who loves you so much
    With out even knowing you were there
    I will but cry silent tears for the love I had for you
    I may never get to hold you in my hands
    But I will always hold you in my heart


    I wrote this following my last loss at 5 1/2 weeks

    To my Husband:

    Mummy-to-be

    The words, they seem to escape me,
    No matter how much I try.
    I don't know how to make you see
    The reason for why I cry.

    The joy of two pink lines I see,
    The anticipation and dread they bring.
    The awe, excitement and expectation.
    Before you even know a thing.

    We made a little person!
    I wondered if we ever could.
    God has chosen to bless us,
    As the bible says, Bless us he would.

    What would this precious baby be like?
    Will it be more like you or me?
    What do I hope and dream for his future?
    Who do I think he will be?

    Maybe it's a little girl!
    We made a beautiful daughter.
    She will fill the rooms of our home,
    With giggling, dancing and laughter.

    Maybe it's a handsome son!
    More trucks, dirt and noise.
    Oh how the Lord will need to help me
    To be a mother of little boys.

    What do I need to do,
    To keep healthy and strong?
    To eat right, take vitamins and not be exhausted
    As this pregnancy goes along.

    I'll do everything in my power
    To give our baby the best start.
    I just can't think about labour yet,
    Oh dear the pain! Nope. I'm sure I can't.

    Now I must think about sharing with you
    The news of this little one.
    Will you be excited, anxious or surprised?
    either way, a Daddy you've become!

    Thank you Lord for this little babe,
    This special gift you've given to us.
    Thank you Lord for this little life,
    who into our care you entrust.

    I woke up early this morning,
    to the realisation that he was gone.
    My heart is totally in pieces.
    Why has this gone wrong?

    Why am I not good enough
    To carry him all the way?
    to see his squishy little face;
    To meet him, now I'll never have that day.

    To have those treasured moments
    Of him snuggled in my arms.
    It's my job to protect him,
    To keep him safe from harm.

    I'm sorry that I failed at that.
    I thought I did everything right.
    I want to turn back time and fix it.
    So he will never be out of my sight.

    Lord I thought you were blessing us?
    By making us parents to be.
    But now I feel you've turned your back
    And taken a part of me.

    I loved this little person.
    I dreamed about who they were.
    Now I'll never say, "I'm your mummy".
    I can never care for him or her.

    Oh Lord, why did we even get pregnant,
    If my baby you were just going to take?
    Why would you make me fall in love,
    Only for my heart to break?

    I just don't understand why,
    You've changed your mind about me.
    Why I'm no longer special enough
    for the job of 'Mummy-to-be'.
