written 28th oct 2012

You were never seen by us, that privilege sadly was not for us 
  an extravagance we were overwhelmed by, the thought of your embrace  
The entire twelve weeks you were a joy to have known, even 'without' being seen 
 hearing about you're arrival, was a blessing at the time you were conceived
For life hadn't been easy and we had all asked God, we even plea'd 

We wait upon the day, you will finally meet us 
 having the honour to love and learn with you, saddly not for us
It brakes my heart as you part, you had already embeded love into my heart
 Just knowing we will now...forever be kept apart

God has other plans for your love that's so strong, blessing us from the start
 we continually pray, maybe he'll deside to let you stay around
But the intense pain of tears and loss, are constantly falling all around
 just let it be known, we all desperately wanted you to become part of us
We all will love you for eternity, you are now forever one of us,
 although it was only for a very slight second, it was better than never
You are from this day on, embedded into our hearts forever...
   the impact you have left 'unborn young one'' my beloved grandchild....
                                  "Angel" 2012

    such a special soul, sometimes god takes the ones he knows are to sensitive for this world, he wants those special ones to be pure and not see this world with it's evil, and keeps them with and beside him,

    Hi Denise, This appeared to be your first poem and I am impressed, this poem has warmth and it is tragic losing a baby without being able to show your feelings, this is very good I rated you a 6 to allow you to improve with time as no one should be rated the top mark until they have become a master poet, no reflection on your abilities.
