My heart is heavy and my soul aches,
I didn't know I was carrying you but it was too late.
I was crushed when that plus line showed through,
For that was the sign I had lost you.
I will never get the chance to hear your heartbeat,
Or see the outline of your little hands and feet.
I think about you often and try to not let the sadness show,
I know I must be strong through the highs and lows.
We never got the chance to meet and we don't have a birthday to celebrate,
Yet, I know I'll meet you one day in front of heaven's gate.
