For Just a Little While

I just came across this poem and really enjoyed it. Hope you do too.

Love to you all... xo




For Just a Little While

For just a little while,
You shared my every breath.
I carried you inside of me,
Dancing out the rhythm
Of the same sweet song,
Our hearts beat in harmony.
For just a little while,
I held you deep within.
I nurtured you with body, mind and soul.

When you slipped away,
The absence of your presence
Took a wrenching and tormenting toll.
For just a little while,
Our dreams and hopes
Grew right along with you.
But they came crashing down
When you slipped away from me
And there was nothing anyone could do.

If, for a little while,
I could hold you once again,
And we could share the
rhythm of our hearts,
If we could say hello, good-bye,
Like loved ones do,
When one of them departs,
If, for a little while,
We could have precious moments
Stopped in time
I’d tell you that I love you,
And I’d share my joy
In knowing you were mine…
For just a little while.

Lesa, Thank you for finding my blog. It is always sad to meet other angel baby momma's...but at the same time I find comfort in those who understand. All 3 of your boys are beautiful. I am deeply sorry about the loss of your son Nicholas, what a beautiful baby. Zoelle was born on 1-4-09 and there isn't one moment that goes by that I don't think of our beautiful daughter. Your story brought tears to my eyes...I am so sorry. My due date would be next week...I am praying it will be kind to me. Anyway...feel free to stop by anytime. Hugs, Kate
