This poem is such a reality to my husband and I. May 20th 2003 I buried my 3 month old daughter Savannah. I fortunatley have my older daughter Kaylie. She has been by strength, my reason to go on.

I loved the poem, I lost my daughter in 1991. She was only 2 days old. The questions that are asked in the poem I ask myself everyday, even 13 years later.
Natalie
All I had to do was read the title and tears filled my eyes. I have three daughters who mean the world to me and I couldn't bare the thought of not having them each day. The tears continued, running down my face as I read. Such a touching poem.

This poem is so beatiful, and I am so sorry about your loss. I couldn't imagine loosing my child. I was on this site trying to find a poem to read at my father's visitation. He died yesterday (Friday) and I found I am pregnant today. I haven't spoke two words to my father in over a year and now I regret that.

I can only imagine the pain that your mother felt. I hope that I never have to go through it, she is a very strong person, and you are very lucky to have a mother like her.

Jessica
hi, i'm jessica. i'm 14 years. i loved this poem! unfortunately i know how it feels to lose a sibling,i lost my twin brother about 3 months ago to a drunk driver. i don't think i would be able to write a poem like this because we were too close and it would make all the pain come back. but thank you.
Lindsey
hi, i know how you feel, because i lost a cousin who was like a daughter to me we were close to one another. she died when she was 4.that day when i found out she was dead i cried for the first time in my life. i'm 14 now and i still miss her. her name is Rose to everyone, but to me she was my daughter.

I have just loss my niece and there is no pain worse than a little childs loss.
Jessica
This poem touches my heart in a deep way. I too lost my daugther but when she was born. I know how hard it is and how no one can take her place. Every time I am asked "How many kids do you have?" I always say two! I am glad to come across this poem. Thank you.
Tegan
I cant imagine the pain of losing a child. A beautiful poem, would bring even the hardhearted to tears.

I loved the poem Kim it was touching. Maybe now your mothers heart can now be at ease not only her's,but other moms who read this poem and lost a child or loved one.

Rosalind
Very sad.
Erin
Had me in tears....

i think you are a very special person to be writing such strong words, your own child has a lot to look up to, fortunately i never lost a sibling at such a young age but i have some idea of the pain you must be feeling, all the luck for the future
