Unforgotten love

The news was miraculous, a new time in my life, one I awaited for so long.

I dreamt a dream one dreary day, it brought me to my knees

It was of my life with my family, a brood of two or three.

I smiled at them all, kids and wife in tow,

I dreamt that dream one day, and now its sorrow I sow.

The dream took a twist and intermingled in the mourning myst, are my thoughts of what was, and what will never be.

We endured the months of agony, the undecided fate

We couldn't shake the fact the doctor had given us a due date.

For time it slowed, it meandered, as if a river by design

and closer to this miracle time, was lost a valiant child.

They fought the good fight, they survived much that doctors did not feel possible,

and now I remember with my soul part of me that will never be.

The unforgotten love I feel is in me day to day, I only hope to share it with the family that remains.

I am not alone in sorrow, not the only one,

I wish I could see through her eyes the love that she does feel,

It is now we travel to see this miracle, a hommage in a field

Untouched and unforgotten, my love lingers on.

We survive for them, our dear ones who moved on,

Its with them in mind we struggle, we fight to carry on.

The unforgotten love I have is not for her alone, it is for the dream I once dreamt and how I wish to continue to have a happy home,

I'm almost lost for words in reacting to this poem. I can't say that I can empathize with you, but I will say that I am sorry for your lost. I can see how a parent of an unborn child love that child before birth. I thank you for sharing this poem with all of us. I wish you nothing but the best.

Its the greiving that allows us to deal with the emotions we have held close to our hearts, without our own form of grieving there can be no 'light at the end of the tunnel". IMHO.

I share this with hope that others can learn to be free, to not hide in the despair they once felt.

Thanks for your kind words guys, it means a lot to be able to shed some emotin here and to impact others. Thanks.

Huge impact. I am just coming outta that dispair you speak of EM. I admire your skills in being able to write such on paper, to have it flow so well. I can feel your pain and your release through this. This did help me and I am sure others will be impacted and be able to feel some kind of comfort in reading this writing. Thank you.

I'm looking at the keys and wondering what I might say, but what can be said except, I am so sorry. Chris

Life is cyclical, a roundabout of celebration and hardship, the total culmination being a miracle we receive when we are born. Thanks for the heart felt condolensces.

I don't know how I missed this poem, but I feel your heart ache. I understand how you must feel, as I too have lost a child. My deepest condolences, as belated as they are.

Today I am a different soul, one fulfilled with thoughts of present and dreams of a new future. I have 2 beautiful daughters and could not imagine my life without them. My sorrow has been tamed, but my heart and soul still remember. I hope I always do, for when we forget is when we truly lose part of us.

Strange I should pick this one to read. I don't think the Doctors do us any favors when they give us an expiration date :( Hugs to us EM.

Beth100 thanks for your thoughts. I hope you have recovered (lack of a better word) and have allowed the healing to happen.

Doctors do as they are trained, no matter the impact on their patients. Complications need to be spoken about before time, as a precautionary measure. They aren't often the touchy feely people who deliver the tough news.

But no you are right in them not doing favours.... they don't deal those out ;)
