Miscarriage - Poem by Cheyenne Ashley

You were once mine
Inside of me, a life
You were made out of me
And God and a man
Growing, entombed in comfort
With everything you needed
Waiting for yor arrival
But I'm so confused
Is it a good thing that you never had to see this earth
You never had to feel any pain or ever get hurt
Or is it a bad thing that it's my fault you died
I am to blame for your lost life
It's my fault that you never had a chance to change this world
I wish I knew which to follow
But confussion aside
I still wish I could have loved you so much
I wanted to hold your little hand
And put it against my heart
So you would know your heart beats with mine
But it's my fault you never got to be

    As the person below said. The last line is the killer, methinks. My heart goes out to you. A fine piece of tribute and introspection. Words offer little comfort so I won't blather on; suffice to say, the old cliche is true; time heals, or at least mitigates the rawness. t x (Report) Reply

    Cheyenne. My heart goes out to you. I have lost one too and also found some relief in writing about it. Time passes but you will never forget. I just have to think that it happens for a reason. You will never stop loving them though, even if you can't hold their hand.
