POEM: Angel of My Tears

I was rereading this poem today and thought it captured the way I felt when I lost my baby. I thought others might enjoy it, too.


Angel of my Tears
How do you love a person
who never got to be,
or try to envision a face
you never got to see?
How do you mourn the death of one
who never got to live.
When there's nothing to feel good about
and nothing to forgive?
I love you, my little baby,
my companion of the night.
Wandering through my lonely hours,
beautiful and bright.
What does it mean to die before
you ever were born,
to live the lovely night of life
and never see the dawn?
Ah! My little baby,
you lived like anyone!
Life's a burst of joy and pain.
And then like yours, it's done.
I love you, my little baby,
just as if you'd lived for years.
No more, no less, I think of you,
the Angel of my tears.
~Author Unknown.

That captures the pain of losing a baby perfectly. It's so difficult to explain how much you miss someone that you never met. Isn't it odd how reading it instantly makes you feel "understood"? Simply beautiful Thanks for posting!

My thoughts, exactly. I felt so comforted when I first read this poem--and every time I've read it since, I somehow feel my connection to my angel even more poignantly. :-)
