My Angel in the Sky

The sun outside is shining bright.
Not a cloud up in the sky.
And yet this darkness swallows me whole.
My heart chokes on goodbye.

Sorrow wraps around me tight,
Making it hard to breathe.
And though I know this too shall pass,
For now I’m asked to grieve.

The life I once held close to mine,
Protected in my womb-
Has died and gone to heaven
And was taken much too soon.

Hold on to those you love so dear.
Memorize the moments as they pass by.
Live, love, laugh all you can
And learn from the tears you’re asked to cry.

If nothing ever changed in life,
Butterflies would not be.
And heaven would have no angels
If God never set them free.

The sun outside is shining bright
Not a cloud up in the sky.
My son’s life and death has awakened me.
My heart beats for him this time.

His spirit wraps around me tight.
His death so hard to believe.
And yet the light he shines on me,
Gives me all the strength I need.

I miss him so, my beautiful boy
And honor his life by living mine.
I love him still, I always will.
My heart beats for him this time.

Hold on to those you love so dear.
Memorize the moments as they pass by.
Live, love, laugh all you can
And learn from the tears you’re asked to cry

If nothing ever changed in life,
Butterflies would not be.
And heaven would have no angels,
If God never set them free.

The sun outside is shining bright.
Not a cloud up in the sky.
If nothing ever changed in life,
Our angels wouldn’t fly.

  1. I recently had a miscarriage and so many mixed emotions, yet so much growth have come from it. The loss still remains, but your poems are beautiful pieces of artwork that really touch the core of my inner being!

  2. Hi this happened to me once…and my mom once …and a very good friend . My friend jane made a beautiful box with all the memories in it, I believe she also made a book. Doesn’t have to be perfect…it’s about also a place to put all your energy . Jane always thought it helped . I’m sorry this happened to you.

    • I’m so very sorry to hear, that this too, has happened to you and your loved ones. I never knew, until it happened to me the first time, just how many women have struggled with the same loss. The box is a beautiful and wonderful idea – Thank you from my heart for reaching out and for your kindness. Love, light and hugs!

      • I was thinking about my words afterwards the box or book is to celebrate the baby that was to come into your family and home. I think it also changes the energy around the loss of the baby and all the hopes connected to it’s coming. I believe that doing that opens you up for new possibilities. Yes you have to grieve but also go through healing (where you let go) Unfortunately, this is life . Hang in there.

  3. I agree. I try to focus on the positives that my two little angels brought to my life even though they couldn’t stay. I believe in my heart that each of them made me a better and more grateful person. They made me understand the beauty of this life, the value in every moment and I am grateful to have had that time with each of them – even though it was cut much shorter than I had hoped. I also have days where my grieving is a deep sadness within my heart for never having had the chance to hold, love and cradle my babies here on this earth. It makes my heart ache to know I never will. You hang in there, too. Hugs!!
