Oh how I feel the same

No Choice
by Wendy Plumley

My eyes are swollen
beyond capacity
from unshed tears.
My heart is numb
and I am broken
from one
too many blows.

I refuse the pain,
and therefore
dare not cry,
lest I dissipate
in the salty torrent
of anguish,
without hope of
ever resurfacing.

Gasping for air,
I must fight
the towering
waves of grief
that threaten
to engulf me.
For once so lost
it is impossible
to return.

No cut
or wound
could hurt
more deeply
than this

So understand
I do not cry,
because she needs me.
My body will cling
to a precarious sanity
and remain,
though my soul
has long fled
this treacherous world
because I need him.

A mother, torn in two.

In the author's words:
The above poem was written for a mother who struggles to remain in this world for her young daughter, whilst all the time dreadfully missing her son.

Wish you were there

I missed you this weekend sweetie. It was Popi's wedding and I couldn't help but wonder what it would have been like with you there. I love you.

Jesus Has a Rocking Chair

"He takes the place of Mom and Dad, He's the best parent a child could have...Don't worry about the children, Jesus has a rocking chair..."

Prayer for today:
"Lord, am I supposed to hurt this much? My arms ache to hold and rock my child. I miss my precious baby. Will my lifes song always be so sad? Meet me where I am today and encourage me with Your truth. You are my song of hope. It's comforting to imagine that You could be holding my child in Your arms. Right now, I need You to hold me. Wrap Your arms of peace around me and rock away my fears. Put a new song in my mouth. Amen."

Excerpt from "Grieving the Child I Never Knew" by Kathe Wunnenberg

14 months today baby and it doesn't get easier missing you <3

Thinking about you today, you and baby Logan. Logans mommy asked me yesterday what I thought you two were up to in Heaven and I find that I often wonder the same. Whenever I think of you I see a smiling face and can tell that you are laughing. I know you are safe, happy and pain free. Mommy is comforted to know this but it doesnt make me miss you any less. I would have cared for you so deeply and with such love, I cant understand why I wasn't given that chance. Someday when my work is done here, we will smile and laugh together in Heaven, I know this much is true.

Wrote this for you tonight baby, it came so easily. I guess that is what grief does to us. I miss you every day in everything I do. I know that someday I will hold you in my arms again.

Missing you isn't easy
Loving you breaks my heart
Without you here beside me my life falls apart

Dreams of holding you
I hear your giggles in my sleep
Your smiling face with love so deep

Where can Mommy go
To hide from the pain of losing you
Oh dear baby do you miss Mommy too

My heart aches for you
To feel you breathing against my chest
Why God have I been chosen for this test

Missing you isn't easy
Loving you breaks my heart
Without you here beside me my life falls apart
