POEM TITLE: My Baby Blessing

My Baby Blessing

This terrible act
Turned my life around.
And now I jump
At the tiniest sound.
This wonderful baby
A gift from above
This little girl
To give all my love
Though I should have been happy
This much is true
Losing my baby
Broke me through and through
She was my hope
My strength and power
She’s not out of my mind
For even an hour
I rode by the river
And beautiful trees

 

Allowed the tears to dry
In the light spring breeze
I hid my bump
Scared of what others would think
And planned with her family
The room of pink
Vivi I will carry you
Forever in my heart
Please hold me together
We will never part
Someday I will be given
A new gift to love
I will learn from this hardship
My little dove
You gave me the push
I needed to get through
Thank you my baby
I love you!
