About the Poem

This is a poem about my first pregnancy. Sadly the pregnancy was outside my uterus and the gynecologist had to end it January 1998. After some time I decided to write about it and share my loss and my hope for the future with other people.

Little One

When I found out about you,
the world seemed to be a better place
Joy, love, happiness, confidence, hope,
Looking forward to the things to come,
Full of it, of the miracle.

Elated by it, in seventh heaven,
A wish come true
At last.
I dreamt of you for such a long time.

You were on my mind, I wanted to share it
With the people close to me.
Told them as soon as I could -
Joy, love, happiness, confidence, hope.

The unexpected, the fear, the hope
Over, ended before it could start.
Hurt, pain, tears, uncertainty,
The operation, the end.

No more plans, no future for you.
Cry and be comforted.
The immense pain.
Waiting for the time to take the edge off it.

Carefully looking out for the future -
The sun slowly outshines the shadow.
Hope for a future, which you still will be a part of -

New joy,
New love,
New happiness,
New confidence,
New hope.

I was very touched by this poem, because on Nov. 13,2005 I lost my daughter. I went into premature labor and my daughter did not make it. I was 24 weeks and 6 days. She only got to live for two minutes. I didn't get to see her eyes or hear her cry. Sorry to all who have lost a child. My heart goes out to you. Beautiful Poem.

Shellie
This is the type of poem I was looking for to bring me comfort. I just had a miscarriage during my 13th week. I don't know if it was a boy or girl, but I do know that whatever it may be it is now a guardian angel watching over me. I never thought that having a miscarriage would be this painful. I am sorry for those who have lost a little one.
Veronica
I LOVE THIS POEM. I HAVE HAD TWO MISCARRIAGES AND MY SISTER HAS HAD ONE. I COULDN'T DESCRIBE HOW I FELT AND YOU WERE ABLE TO. IT'S A GREAT POEM ABOUT FEELINGS OF AN UNBORN CHILD AND HOW CLOSE A MOTHER BECOMES EVEN WITH THE CHILD ISN'T BORN YET.
aisha

Rayne
Your poem was perfect. I lost my son about two weeks ago and no one had anything to say to me. It was like since the baby was never born he was never real. I have to say thanks you are one of the few that really understand the pain of saying good bye to you baby.
tracey
fantastic poem. it was lovely to read your poem and know that someone out there feels the same as i do.
susannah
your poem is so touching,but i know my mum feels the same way as you do but she didnt just lose one or two she lost six, my mum lost five through miscarriage and one just died in her arms at the age of three hours old. it sounds vey heart breaking but if they all survived there would be eleven of us in all.

Alicia
I wanted to say I understand your hurt. I have miscarried 4 babies and have given birth to my stillborn daughter at 36 weeks. The pain never goes away, nor will you ever understand the reason for the loss, but you do forever feel a conection, a love and a bond that will never fade away.

Annemarie
Hi, my name is Annemarie and I am the author of this poem. It is overwhelming to read the comments you guys made here at netpoets and in my mailbox. 1998 is a long time ago but my Little One is still with me in spirit. There has been a lot going on since that day, lots of tears and heartache, but I never stopped hoping for a miracle. And now, in Februari 2004, my son was born. His birth was a wonderful experience and I love him deeply. Finally I have a little one in my arms. thank you all for hoping and wishing that for me to happen. I wish you all what you wished for me! Love, Annemarie

Cat
I voted for this poem because my mother miscarried an unborn child and it reminds me of him so he looked just like a newborn baby except he was very small. age, 12
Sheyanne
When I read your poem I had to take a minute to cath my breath, beautiful. I loss my son last fall at 17 weeks into my pregancy due to an incompetant cervix. All the feelings of loss and hopelessness is hard to bear, but moments like this help you smile.
Gwen
Thank-you for sharing your poem. It is comforting to hear someone's else's voice about losing an unborn child when it seems so many people do not realize the depth of pain it brings.
