Stillbirth Poems - Mother of a Still Born
Mother of a Still Born
Although my child’s spirit was not in her body when she was born
My beautiful child still was born
Still was born into a loving family
Still was born into the hearts of many
Still was born into the kingdom of God
Don’t shed any tears for me, her mother, unless they are tears of joy, I am happy
My gain completely outweighs any loss I am feeling
I have gained a beautiful daughter named Jaden whose spirit is alive and well
Any loss I have is that of hopes, dreams, and expectations of this world
All of which are of my mind and are not tangible
Unlike the very real daughter I have In heaven, my fourth child
Someone told me that God operates in the present, not the past or future and what is real is in the present
When I feel my empty womb I do not think about what could have been on earth
but of what is already in heaven
The time we will be apart will be like the blink of an eye compared to the eternity we will spend together in heaven and eventually on the “new earth” again
So when you think of me or Jaden, rejoice! We are rejoicing
Jaden will never know hurt or sorrow or sin
Her purpose on earth was completed while still in my womb
I do not feel like my child’s life was stolen from me by disease or by Satan
I do not feel like my hopes and dreams are shattered but that they are fulfilled, just in a different way
My hopes and dreams for the future are held in our eternity together
Her life is complete, God says …“it is finished”
