Wednesday Words - Our Loss

I haven't joined into Wednesday Words for a while now and to Emma from Crazy With Twins, I am truly sorry for missing out.

I don't really want to say much this week and this picture explains why...

Yes. Yesterday our bump, our baby, our third child decided that now was not the right time to be coming into the world and unfortunately, I miscarried. It is obviously a sad time for my husband and I, not to mention the boys too. Trying to explain to a 3 year old that there is now no baby in mummies tummy is hard work and he doesn't really understand. It just wasn't our time to become a family of five.

I found this poem and it really brings home just how I feel and so this is what I share for Wednesday Words this week.

A Lament for My Baby

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.
Time has begun to ease my pain, It's only some days now I cry.
When I wish I could have said "Hello" and heard you say "Goodbye"
