Stillbirth Poems - Whispering Pain

Whispering Pain

This whispering pain - comes over me again,

It can’t be stopped - with the pills I’ve popped,

It can’t be eased - my heart has simply seized.

Life is so cruel - you’ve taken my jewel,

My precious one - my tiny baby son.

He was born asleep - with no soul to keep,

For God to hold - never to grow old.

This whispering pain - comes over me again,

It says you're tough - you’ve cried enough,

It says let go of the life you’ll never know,

Let it run free - then you will see,

The pain you hold - will make you so cold,

It’ll suck you dry - so you can not cry,

Flow through your veins - like the winter rains.

This whispering pain - comes over me again.

It says you see - he was not meant to be,

Not strong enough - for a life so rough,

All I ask - is to have a mask,

To hide away - the pain of each day,

To make me strong - So I can sing my song,

Of my beautiful baby boy - who will fill heaven full of joy.
