Miscarriage

My little seed in its soft pod.
My little egg fertilised by love.
Splitting and dividing.
A little gift from up above.

My little silver blackberry of cells.
Floating like a balloon.
My body getting ready for you.
I'd hold you in a cocoon.

My little sprouting bean.
Little buddy arms and legs growing.
Little heart beating.
My love overflowing.

My little fish,
In your bubble of water.
I still couldn't feel you.
My sweet darling daughter.

My body kept you warm.
My body helped you grow.
Everything was wonderful.
Little did I know.

Something happened my baby girl.
At fourteen weeks I miscarried you.
My womb empty, baby gone.
I loved you.
Love you still.
Just wish you'd grew.

So sorry for your daughter, sending you all love and healing. My miscarriage would have been my second child also. Never forget the one I lost but did go on to have a wonderful daughter afterwards.
