"The pain ..

The pain in my heart
Echoes the pain in my womb
Dark drops of blood
Mime the tears I'm not supposed to cry
I'm lonelier than I was before
Would you have looked like me?
Or did you have his eyes?
One day I shall show your little sister
All the things I was waiting to show you
Teach her the songs you were going to sing
Call her name and think of yours
That only you and I know.

After reading the comment that followed this, I felt I ought to clarify that I've  never had a  miscarriage, and never been pregnant.

i am sorry for the achings of your heart... you put your feelings down beautifully. they echo a sentiment i had when i lost one of my children to miscarriage. May God heal your heart and fill you with peace and hope.

That is very sweet of you but I have never actually had a miscarriage, in fact I have never been pregnant. But your comment makes me feel good cos it tells me I have a gift with words and with empathy :o) Thank you.
