Until We Meet

(To my unborn children)

Loved and lost…
…so brief a spell on earth

A candle flickering briefly in the darkness

You touched my womb but a moment
My heart forever

No bump
No birth
No baby

Did I imagine you?
O happy dream!
Joyous Summer!
Now Winter comes
I feel the cold.

Did you know before you left me?
Did you hear my voice
my heart?
Did you feel pain?

I miss you.

You never saw the sun or moon
Never knew the joy of spring
You never saw your big sister
Or knew the joy of love and laughter

But one day I will come to join you
Will you know your mother's face?
God chose to take you straight to heaven
To spare you from the pains of earth

For unto everything is a season
A time to be born and a time to die
You never knew grief and mourning
Never had a need to cry

I won't forget you precious babies… take good care
until we meet.
