A Poem For An Angel

by Birth Without Fear on September 16, 2011

We’ve had a few moms write in lately that they have experienced miscarriages and loss. With a Community as large as ours, it happens more than any of us would like. It breaks our hearts. I think most women feel a pain for another woman who is going through this.  Tricia has a baby waiting in heaven and when she saw that other women were experiencing what she has, she sent in this beautiful poem she wrote in hopes it will comfort other mamas, if but just for a moment. ~Mrs. BWF

A Poem

I cried for joy when I saw the pink lines
We’d waited and waited for such a long time
People gave gifts to show their delight
I could barely get any sleep at night
I was so excited to experience this life
I felt like I finally had something right
The family I’d dreamed of for so many years
Was worth the wait, and was finally here
Then in an instant, the joy was gone
I went to the doctor because something was wrong
He said not to worry, it would all be ok
But he was wrong, and my baby left me that day
My heart aches for the child I never knew
He was once in my womb, then with angels he flew
I’m sure he’s in heaven having a ball
With Jesus, the greatest Daddy of all
I can’t wait for the day that I see my child
He’ll run to me quick with his arms open wide
I love him as much as I love my new son
But he’ll forever be my very first one
He holds a very special place in my heart
He made me a Mommy, though his time was cut short
My dream has come true and my family is great
I have three kids in heaven, my arrival they await
Someday we’ll be together and they’ll sit on my lap
And I’ll mother the children that this Earth never had

~Tricia Pyatt

Thank you for sharing this poem with us, Tricia. I wish I had the talent to write something commemorating my angels, but I don’t. God bless you and your beautiful family.

I read this and wept. So many of my mothers when I was a midwife experienced thi but when I was younger I had no idea what it meant to them. This beautiful poem could have been written for someone I know and I hope it helps her as much as it touched me.

WOW!!! Im fighting back the tears… I was Blessed with a little miracle of my own. Wasn’t an easy pregnantcy, & when Cody was born they practically had 2 yank him from me so the could save his life… The cord was round his throat & was strangelling him… At that moment i never felt more relieved in my life when i heard him cryng 4 da first time.. I almost lost my little miracle.. I can only try 2 imagine what its like actually losing ur little miracle… I think woman who go through that are very strong in some way, bcauze i wouldn’t b able to go a single day without Cody in my life…

Wow, this really is beautiful and speaks to my heart and soul for the 2 I lost, I was blessed with 2 boys in all and lost 2 pregnancies. It took 10 years and $20,000 for the IVF but it was a journey I will never regret! Women are stronger than they know! God Bless you all and the ^angel^ babies waiting for us!
