Poem - A Lament For My Baby
A Lament For My Baby, Author Unknown
I never got to hear you laugh, you never saw me cry
didn't get a chance to say "Hello", you never said "Goodbye"
I didn't think that I could feel so sad, lost and forlorn
I never knew God chose his Angels before some of them were born
Your life was short yet special, I shared it all exclusively
I felt you breathe, I felt you kick, you were alive inside of me.
Every baby is an Angel and every Angel is divine
God needed one in Heaven... he came down and took mine
And although we are not together, we're not really apart
for you'll always occupy a space deep within my heart
They say that time will ease the pain although each day I cry
When I wish I could have said "Hello" and heard you say "Goodbye"
Supporting anyone affected by the death of a baby and
promoting research to reduce the loss of babies’ lives
