A Mother's Day Poem for Baby Loss


I am your mother, but you, my child, I cannot hold.
It'll get easier with time, or so I'm told.
People may forget that I am your mother.
I'm part of a secret club we only share with one another.

But that doesn't diminish my love for you.
I think of you the whole day through.
I wonder what you're doing, my Precious Little One.
We are connected by an Infinite bond which cannot come undone.
I will not let Death tear us apart.
I promise to always keep you alive in my heart.

"A Mother's Day Ode" by Susan Mosquera
Oh, I love this so much.  We too have a Glory Baby whom one day we will see and hold. His name is Caleb Aaron and while he was born too soon to live here, he is still our fist son and honor forever.
