Prayer of a midwife on Worldwide Candle Lighting Day

I woke up this morning
Something special on my mind
Today I must light a candle so that
Their Light May Always Shine.

I light it for the babies
That didn’t make this world this time
They died before or after birth, hope 
Their flickering light will always shine.

So many couples wait in vain
Hoping maybe it will be their time
Suffering all the stress and pain
Please let their light always shine

So many tears today and lonely thoughts
The why and wherefores, maybe next time
They pray and hope all answers have been sought
God make their light always shine

Next year a new life might be theirs
But never will they forget the time
When hope was lost thought no one cared
Always and forever their light must shine.

    I agree Debbie, my job is to bring them safely into the world, unfortunately there is a small percentage of babies that dont make it...That makes my work hard to bear...Seren
