Miscarriage Poems - Missing Pieces
This miscarriage poem was sent by Kylie who sadly suffered an early miscarriage. Her poem was written during a recent sleepless night and tenderly illustrates how the loss of a much-wanted baby leaves a family feeling they have forever a missing piece in their lives.
Your first Christmas came without you
You're the unopened secret screams
We carry you in our broken hearts all day
And unwrap you in our dreams
I see you in every bulging belly
In every Mother's thoughtless kiss
I see you in empty baby shoes
I see you in that, I see you in this
You're in every why can't that be me
And the tears hidden in my car
We wonder who we are without you
...We wonder where you are
You were here before you weren't
There was a future with you in it
Now you're the broken parts of us
And the missing piece of every minute
