Here are a colection of poems that we have been given and that we have found from various sources.

I had you to myself.
And that seems too short a time
to be changed so profoundly.
In those few weeks -- I came to know you...
and to love you.
You came to trust me with your life --
Oh, what a life I had planned for you!
Just those few weeks --
When I lost you, I lost a lifetime of
hopes, plans, dreams and aspirations...
A slice of my future simply vanished overnight.
Just those few weeks --
It wasn't enough time to convince others
how special and important you were.
How odd, a truly unique person has recently died
and no one is mourning the passing.
Just a mere few weeks --
And no "normal" person would cry all night
over a tiny, unfinished baby,
or get depressed and withdrawn day after endless day.
No one would, so why am I?
You were just those few weeks, my tiny little one.
You darted in and out of my life too quickly.
But it seems that's all the time you needed
to make my life so much richer
and give me a small glimpse of eternity.
By Susan Erling

Peace and Tranquility

I dream of
baby backpacks,
baby balls,
baby bottles,
baby beds -
my baby boy.

I don't need
baby blankets,
baby baths,
baby booties,
baby bibs -
my baby blues.

I wish for
baby buntings,
baby bears,
baby baskets,
baby books -
my baby back

Carol Fowler

  A miracle of life made into two
Two babies to have and hold
Twenty fingers
Twenty toes
Two prams to push
Four lips to kiss four hands to hold
Two bodies to cuddle
Two faces to adore.
No babies to have or hold
No twenty fingers
No twenty toes
No prams to push
No lips to kiss
No feet to tickle
No hands to hold
No bodies to cuddle
No faces to adore
No miracle left
Only emptiness
