I figured this would happen but still I had hoped
I had prayed with all my soul that this will be ok
But yet again my prayers end in vain

I have never felt this pain though I know of many who have. Today we sit in remembrance of those who have lost a small part of them. A child was taken without reason.
We bow our heads to the ground then lift them on high. We allow ourselves to cry for little ones we never got to meet, taken from us way to soon.
No parent should ever be forced to outlive their child. This is not the plan. We are supposed to be long dead before they join us.
See I have never felt such a pain. I have never had a miscarriage but I know many who have. I have never had a stillbirth, but I know many who have. And for those many that I know I cry for them.
I say to them that I am sorry for their loss. That I am there for them whenever they need me. I will not tell them that it was Gods plan. I will not tell them how they should be happy that they can even have kids. I will not lie tell them this sick twisted words.
Instead I will hold them close and tell them I love them.
Instead I will do my best to love them, to show them I love them, and help them the best I can as they heal.
For this is a pain that never goes away. It lingers near even when things seem ok. I will be there for them as long as they have me.
To all those who have lost a little one. Know that you are loved. Know that it isn’t your fault no matter the means. That you are cared for. Know that no one will ever forget the person who isn’t with us today. That we are with you. Know that no matter what I am with you.
