Life Is What You Make It

Born: March 8th 2014 Who would assume she could never bloom Who would assume she could leave so soon Who would assume such doom could loom that a life giving womb would turn to a tomb... Died: March 6th 2014 Dedicated to Kloe Faith Reno and my precious granddaughter in law Veronica and grandson Jacob who have lost 2 babies in less than 2 years. The first was a ‘simple’ miscarriage, but the second baby Veronica carried for almost 7 months.

as soon as I began reading your poem I felt the suffering of losing a child, I too lost two from my womb When losing my Mother, I always said that the giver of my life has lost her life. Your poem also reminds me of her. It's the kind of poem that anyone can reach in a take the words and apply to their own personal hurt. thank you for composing for us.
