Dear Baby Lost


We didn't get to say goodbye
Or even say hello
But for having you just briefly
We're more grateful than you'll know

We loved you almost instantly
When holding you that day
And thank God for that memory
Before you went away

We're puzzled but are being strong
The way you'd want us to
Holding memories in our hearts
Of our short time with you

We loved you almost instantly
While holding you that day
And thank God for that memory
Before you went away

We didn't get to say goodbye
Or barely say hello
But for having you just briefly
We're more grateful than you'll know

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Know'st thou not at the fall of the leaf
How the heart feels a languid grief
Laid on it for a covering,
And how sleep seems a goodly thing
