His Will

Months and months we tried and tried, wishing to conceive
what great joy we felt to find our prayers were received. 

Day by day we planned and waited for the time to come
when we would have a new born a daughter or a son.

Three months of sun, a pale green room, a crib by the wall
crocheted blankets and Teddy bears laying in the hall.

Then sorrow came with blood and pain, a baby lost
you see, not to be, my little girl her life was our cost.

I would not relive the day, though I dream it still
perhaps at heavens gates she'll be, oh, I hope she will.

    Really a good re - telling of a sad experience. Is it true or are you just making up some fiction. I hope the latter. Anyway keep it up! Matthew Anish

    Dear poet; being the soul who has lost two little ones, the inflammation in mine throat has once again threatened the depths of mine heart reading this write of yours. How can this soul, encourage such a soul as yourself as to the reuniting of the soul you pine for? I'll pray, for true; with the faith I possess, and you yourself remember the mustard seed ! Have a blessed New Year dear poet....much love, james

    This poem is one of those which tugs so hard at our heartstrings. It is almost too painful to read. This was surely not an easy subject to write about. I admire your bravery for doing so. Well done, Debbie...Thank you for the kind congrats on my poem. I really do appreciate it!
