I have learned of so many mothers who have lost their babies. My heart aches for these moms. In the quiet of the night, I pray for them. I can’t even begin to understand the depths of their despair or the trauma that shakes their souls. There are some moms who have spent earthly time with their beloved children before losing them. There are others who only held their babies for a moment before their hearts were broken in pieces.
I just can’t imagine that kind of pain.
Please, let me try to comfort you the only way I know how. Whether you believe in Heaven or not, your child is there. Your child is full of light and love and is dancing with God and all the other angels. To you, this child is wrapped in sadness and grief. But your child shines like a star in the darkness… knowing eternity is real. Your Hell is here on earth, living without. But this time here is short, compared to the time you will spend dancing with your beloved in Heaven. Eternity is where you will find your hope.
My dear friend inspired me to write this poem, having lost her precious baby girl. I am sure she wouldn’t mind if I shared. (I adjusted a few things) I’m not even sure it helped her in any way. I don’t know if this is any kind of provision for mothers who have suffered loss or not. I just had to try…
Praying for you, dear moms. You will see your angels. And you will live an eternity with them soon…
“Hush little angel don’t you cry
Mama still can see you in the sky
Your family, how they miss you
Your daddy wants to play fun games with you.
Now little darling, keep that smile
And dance up there in Heaven for a while
And when it’s time to join you, we will be
Our perfect, happy little family.
My little one, how you have grown
Oh, how the years have come and gone
We are growing too now can you see
All of the people in your family?
Now run and skip and hop away
And know we will be with you someday
And in our darkness, help us see
Us together for eternity.
Oh little angel you do shine
In our hearts and in our minds
Keep your light so bright and true
And know how deeply we love you.”
