Forever In My Heart

Sometimes I look around me
and I see an empty space
where you might be playing
a sweet smile on your face
You might be calling out to me
asking me to play
and I would be there with you
and you would fill my day

At bedtime when I read to you
before I tucked you in
I would open up my arms
and you would climb right in
I would kiss your baby cheek
and tell you "you're my love"
then I would hold you close to me
and thank the Lord above...

But when I look around again
there's just an empty space
no toys scattered on the floor
no shinning little face
I'll never hear you call my name
or watch you as you grow
but you will always be with me
no matter where I go

I know there is a heaven
and I know that you are there
and you have a better life
than I could give you here
until I take my final breath
I will always pray
that through God's most precious gift
I'll be with you someday

Then I will take you in my arms
and hold you close to me
your laughter will ring in my ears
your smiling face I'll see
we will be together
my precious baby boy
and then the only tears I'll cry
will be ones of joy

I hope that you can hear me
I have so much to say
but I never had the chance
since you left me that day
for now I want to tell you
that I love you so
and I'm so very sorry
that you had to go

If you could have stayed with me
my dream would have come true
and I know I would have done
anything for you
and even though you went away
and we must be apart
I know you will always live
forever in my heart

I felt every word of your poem because I also lost my baby boy at full-term birth. I heard his heartbeat at the doctor's office one day and was scheduled to be induced the next morning, but he died in my belly just hours before he was to be delivered into my arms due to a blood clot. That was 17 yrs ago, and while my grief has healed with time, your poem touched me deeply. I, too, will hold my son forever in my heart until I can hold him in my arms in Heaven. God bless & take care.

Beautiful song that leaves me with tears streaming down my face. There is no loss greater for a parent than the loss of a child...a loss that would be impossible to truly recover from. I'm sending all my hugs and love to you. Your courage and faith are truly inspiring. *hug* Thank you so much for your comment on my poem "Primordial". ~Juliane

Robin, this is sad and tragic, This is what I do daily. I feel your pain, I take it this is the son you lost. I am inspired. I am going to go to my thinking spot and am going to pen a poem for you. I don't know what I'm going to say yet, but well communicate through comments. First is it okay for me to do this and second is his name Aaron? and how long has it been? if you don't mind me asking?.
