Stillbirth Poems - Going Home
Spoken by a stillborn baby, this poem gently captures a baby's love for the parents who have lost him and shows how love lives on after death.
Yesterday father, you fathered me.
Today dear mother, you birthed me.
I was there, you were there,
We all stood witness.
I heard your whispers,
That you love me.
I heard you tell each other
How beautiful I was viewed
in my eternal quietude.
I even felt your soft caress
As you held me to your breast.
On this morn, mourn not for me.
With ethereal grace I have a name.
I have a home, I have a life...
To live through all eternity.
