    Most times a well written poem makes me smile...this one though makes me cry...you have opened old wounds and brought out memories of long ago for me...we had a boy that was full term..who died of menangidis..spell it wrong but you get it...he was 2 1/2...his younger brother was born ten weeks early and as you said..so tiny and weak....he was in the hospital for three months....he is now in his second enlistment in the us air force...now explain gods will in this...i never could...i never will...beautifully written Bonnie...thank you for allowing me to step back in time...if only for a moment of sorrow and yet happiness.... ~^..^ (Report) Reply

    A tribute to a child born too weak to live. But a real person to the mother who carried it to term. (Report) Reply

    Brilliant title, styling, content, and approach, yes I think that you haved poured your energy into this one, ...very sad all the same, but as you so respectfully quote...

    Very sad indeed, and to often too real.
    This happens every day somewhere and I really dont think there is any good way to say good bye. Just to remember, what might have been.
    Very sad and nice piece

    this brought to mind memories of still born infants ansspontaneous abortions I came across as a social worker.The perfect child who was not destined to be but still very real to the mother ivor (Report) Reply
