To the mommies out there who are mourning a loss,
please know that I think of you often.
I’m sure it must feel like the pain is surreal,
and you wish that the blow could be softened.

You clung to the image of being a mom,
the second you saw those two lines.
You nested, invested, and fully expected,
your sweet little one to be fine.

You carried your gift both in body and mind,
embracing the fear with the joy.
Fondly awaiting that one special moment,
of meeting your sweet girl or boy.

But then, like a nightmare, unable to wake,
you learn of your little one’s fate.
And nothing you say, or how much you pray,
can lift this impossible weight.

It’s simply unfair when someone like you,
withstands such unthinkable trauma.
With no explanation to bring consolation,
you wonder, “Will I ever be a mama?”

The scope of your pain I can only conceive,
in moments my own thoughts run wild.
Lying in bed, with fears in my head,
of losing my own precious child.

When family and friends share their own baby news,
the weight on your heart is titanic.
Excitement you feign, while masking the pain,
and hope that your smile seems organic.

I know it must seem like the world has moved on,
when to you, forever’s too soon.
And friends find it hard to offer regards,
for fear of reopening wounds.

Grief, like the past, never fully abates,
at times it can tear you apart.
For moments of pain, like scars, will remain,
forever tattooed on your heart.

To face such a hardship is truly unfair
and I wish for your heart to be freed.
One thing’s for sure, we mommies endure,
but to brave it alone, there’s no need.

To the mommies out there who are mourning a loss,
just know that there’s love being sent.
And I will be here, to lend you an ear,
in the moments you just need to vent.
