Little One

Little One we never knew.
A welcome addition to a family of two.
When we heard you were on the way.
We jumped for joy that day.

For being no bigger than a mustard seed.
You had our hearts and all the love you would need.
Went to the doctors and learned all we could.
Read the books the experts said we should.

Went to follow up
Little nervous and not wanting to throw up
In the exam room, all was right
Until the doctor said the baby was gone and gave us a fright

We cry and mourn
The Little One who’ll never be born
My firm belief is when you went away
Up in Heaven is where you went to stay

One day your parents will arrive
Brothers and sisters to be at your side.
Little One we never knew.
A welcome addition to a family of two.

  1. I like that poem. It’s a happy but yet sad one all in one. I just hate it for y’all, I was just as excited to hear that I was gonna have another niece or nephew, but hopefully sometime that day will come.
