When Heavens Realm had been created
All the angels gathered round
And beheld its awesome wonders
Nothing lacking they had found

God Almighty stood in silence
For in his heart, he knew
What kind of place would heaven be
Without some children too?

Only for a moment
He considered what must be done
Then his Cherubim were summoned...
The joy of heaven, had begun...

Grandparents, for generations
Countless mothers throughout the years
All adoring laughing children
As the Angels brought them here

Every heart is filled with kindness
For this innocence, so pure
Christ The Lord abiding with them
Their Salvation is secure

Since the first child received by Angels
Heavens population grew
For what kind of place, would heaven be
Without some children too?

My Poem On The Death Of My Child


Please, don't ask me if I'm over it yet
I'll never get over it
Please, don't tell me she's in a better place
she's not here with me
Please, don't say at least she isn't suffering
I haven't come to terms with why she had to suffer at all
Please, don't tell me you know how I feel
Unless you have lost a child
Please, don't ask me if I feel better
Bereavement isn't a condition that clears up
Please, don't tell me you had her for so many days
What days would you chose for your child to die?
Please, don't tell me God never gives more than we can bear
Please, just say you are sorry
Please, just say you remember my child
Please, just let me talk about my child
Please mention my child's name
Please, just let me cry.

Still don't understand
by: Anonymous

Anonymous from April 13th still doesn't get it. She reads the poem yet she goes on to answer everything that was asked of her to not do. Just to show that all who do say things may be positive for you to say but truthfully nothing you say will ever help except just being there. The amount of pain that comes from this is greater then anything you'll ever feel and I know you're trying to help, but the only thing that would help is our children to come back. You need to just respect your friend or family member cause time is the only other thing that help. Smh

So sorry

My bff lost her son. No one understand those questions only make it worse

Okay. I wont do any of those things.
by: Anonymous

My poor angel. I wont tell you that your daughter is with all your family members who went before. And that she is love dearly and being nurtured. But she is.
I wont tell you that she will grow up in the spirit world to be a fine your woman. But she will.
I wont tell you that in your sleep state. And although you will not be allowed to remember it. The Spirit you will visit and spend time with her
and all your other loved ones on that side. But you will.
I wont tell you that eventually you will be reunited with her, and only then will you remember all those visits. But you will.
I wont tell you that every time you think of her she will be there with you. But she will.
I wont tell you that every time you cry, then so will she. And that she will have to return to her own world inconsolably sad because Mommy is sad.
But she will.
How do I know these things? I too have lost three
boys, plus one who never saw the light of day, and my wife to the Spirit World. But I am a
lifetime Spiritualist, and the President of a Spiritualist Church. I am constanly in touch with, and aware of one or the other around me. Often they tell me of things I have said or done. Like the time I meant to put my socks in the washing machine, but put them in the dustbag. That caused a bit of laughter on the otherside.
My poor angel. Only time will heal a broken heart.
So I wont tell you that you too are surrounded by your loved ones from the otherside, all trying to
comfort you. But you are.

I have never lost a child. I am blessed but I work as a Hospice Social Worker/Bereavement Counselor and this is truly one of the most touching poems I have read. My heart goes out to all with a loss of a child. I am sitting here with tears in my eyes as I write this.

Thank you for this poem, it is so true. We lost our son a little over 2 years ago. Kevin was in a tragic truck accident. He was 24 on 6/27/09 and his accident on 7/4/09. That holiday means nothing to us now. I tried to go in his room, but it is so hard for me too. It like a hole in your heart that will not heal up. Kevin was a great son. I'm his mother I still cry for him everyday. We love and miss him sooooooo very much. He is our heart and always will.

I totally relate to this poem. I lost my son last year and have had people say it is time to move on. (it will only be a year in April 2010). THAT is when I want to scream: PLEASE! don't tell me what to do until you have been through the terrible heart-wrenching experience of losing your child.
God bless

My beautiful niece lost her fight last November and all my family are still in total shock. The ups and downs when she went into remission followed by the horror of her final day, 2 years to the day on from her first diagnosis. People really don't know what to say so usually say nothing. Your poem is amazing.

A Mother's Grief
by: Maureen

Thank you you for your beautiful poem. It felt like I wrote it myself.

I'm finally able to put my thoughts in writing. We lost our son Charles,our sunshine,14 years ago, but it seems like yesterday.

I can still see his smiling face, feel his soft skin, smell the scent of his clothes and hear his sweet voice saying "I love you Ma". The inner pain and feeling of sadness is there,it never goes away.

You're always thinking "what if ???." Only someone who has lost a child really knows how we truly feel. Thanks for wonderful memories of my precious child. "Love you,Jr",Ma

The Truth of the Pain From the Lost of a Child
by: Cynthia

Thank you, beautifully written for putting into words how the lost of words that are offered in such a time of pain are meaningless. This type of lost is a pain that follows you in life that continues deep into your very soul forever.

I buried my son ten years ago from a medical condition not curable. And the pain often seems like it was just yesterday.

When trying to give comfort to such pain caution should be used in respect of one's feelings - feelings that truly are only understood when "you" actually loose a child. There are no words that can bring comfort to such pain.

Just be in the moment with the parent, be still and allow the parent to share their feelings. Silence - can do wonders at such a difficult moment.

How true!
by: Delissia

Thank you so much for your honesty. I lost my daughter, Brittney, to a tragic automobile accident one year, 4 months, and 18 days ago. It still feels like yesterday. She was only 20 years old, so much more life to live. I get so tired of people asking how I am and constantly telling me that time will heal. That was my child, my baby girl, no- time will not heal. I will never see her again and that will never change. I, too, have heard so many times that God will not put more on you than you can handle also. On, on, and on. You're so right, unless you have lost a child- don't give me advice on how to feel better! I didn't just lose a goldfish, I lost my child. Thanks again for the poem, it is so real.

Out little April
by: Betsy & Rocky

Still .... on August 13th, six years ago, we lost our precious April (sixteen years old) and yes let's talk of her and her most beautiful self of becoming the person she wanted to be. She did exist and will always be in our hearts. We miss that twinkle in your eyes and the warmth of your smile.

Thank you for your poem.
We lost a one year old 12 years ago, and rarely a day goes by we don't think of him. Still find it difficult to go down the "baby" aisle in stores. The journey is what it is and the others will really never know how deep the pain goes.

My little Angel

by sharon rose

Out the blue you came with little warning

So beautiful, so sweet

You smiled you jabbered all the noises and sights a mother loves to see

Your starting to grow and do lots of things, only 4 months old but a soul that is old.

You made your mother smile something she hasn't done for awhile

Your the beautiful boy that really she adored

You were so good and gentle as can be

You made life so much at ease

So easy to please with a bottle for hunger

so easy to please with a clean diaper

holding was a pleasure and not a chore

i want to rock you and love you some more

watching you grab, and watching you roll made
a regular day a very great one

granpa liked to watch you smile, it almost seemed like you were a verge of giggle

the night you went to sleep and didn't awake makes us
wonder why him God why him

a beautiful baby so young and pure we cant understand the justice it stands for

they say there's a heaven, with angels alike, grandmas and grandpas and uncles and aunts

we pray your all there to met him hes to young to be left alone

take him on your knee and hold him tight teach him to love and let him remember us so when we meet again

watch over your mother and older brother there the ones that are needing you most

when the wind blows a little bit slow just remember its him stopping to say hi

i had to let you know that i love you so much and i beg and plead that you will come back

love you

Little Wing
Poem for The Loss of A Child

Fly, fly little wing

Fly beyond imagining

The softest cloud, the whitest dove

Upon the wind of heaven's love

Past the planets and the stars

Leave this lonely world of ours

Escape the sorrow and the pain

and fly again.

Fly, fly precious one

Your endless journey has begun

Take your gentle happiness

Far to beautiful for this

Cross over to the other shore

There is peace forevermore

But hold this mem'ry bittersweet

Until we meet.

Fly, fly do not fear

Don't waste a breath, don't shed a tear

Your heart is pure, your soul is free

Be on your way, don't wait for me

Above the universe you'll climb

On beyond the hands of time

The moon will rise, the sun will set

But I won't forget

Fly, fly little wing

Fly where only angels sing

Fly away, the time is right

Go now, find the light

Baby girl

by Caitlin Bowen

Baby girl can you see my tears,
way up in heaven can you feel my fears.
Baby girl can you see what I dream at night,
because it's you my angel shining bright.
They used to say we were never seen apart,
but when I close my eyes I still see you in my heart.
Now all I can do is wait for my life to end,
so that one day we can be together again.

goodbye angel.

by Catherine Fleming
(ireland, cork. passage)

Her loving smile and gentle touch,
her amazing voice I miss so much,
To hear her sing, to hear her talk,
A million miles I would walk.

To hold her hand,
To see her face,
To know that she is in a good place.
I know its hard not to cry,
but she was taken and I don't know why.

With wings to fly, and halo's so bright,
She is the brightest star that fly's throughout the night,
I miss you so much and that's no lie,
sleep tight little angel way up high.


Very beautiful Catherine. I hope you will continue to write.

Please Don't Cry

by kigemuziderrick
(uganda, kampala)

please don't cry,don't weep for me
am not gone and still with u
am that star that shines in the night
am the wind that blows

please don't cry for me
God saw me in pain and took me,
to paradise where happiness is for ever
please don't cry am not gone
am just in the other room
if u listen so carefully in your heart
u will hear my sweet voice

please don't cry for me
i will be here waiting to see u
and when u come i will greet u
with a smile on my face.
please don't cry

How do I overcome this sadness
Or begin to say goodbye
Where do I go to find the answers
So that I can understand "The Reason Why"

Like Christ, I felt forsaken
The day You took my (son/child) away
Lord. Why did our prayers go unanswered
When So Many people prayed ?

I cried out to you in anger
And begged to let me take (his/her) place
Oh ... how I long to hear (his/her) voice again
And see (his/her) smiling face

But you were at the dawn of All creation
And laid the foundations of the earth
And it was You who gave "The Breath of Life"
And the miracle of birth

So who am I, that I should question
The Choice You made that day
"For it is the Lord who giveth...
And the Lord who takes away"

But there is a thought, where I find comfort
And in my heart, I know it's true
And that is...
You took my child away from Me...
So (he/she) could spend More time with You

by Brittany

Gone to the touch,
but here in my heart.
Never thought I would
have to see us be apart.

There's not a day that passes,
That I wish you were here.
Standing beside me,
hugging me, keeping me near.

It was tough,
watching you go through
all the pain.
I never thought this would happen to you.

You went so young,
and unprepared.
We weren't ready to lose you,
we were all so scared.

Now we're all here,
gathered together.
Thinking about how
we will miss you forever.

You will always have
a special place in our hearts.
We will always love you
even though we are apart.

Darling Child

by Richard John Scarr
(Brighton, East Sussex, England. )

Darling child, we really miss you.
And we thought you were our own.
For we had no way of knowing,
you had come to us on loan.

Like us, God too adores you.
And he showed you so much love.
For he sacrificed you to us.
And watched and missed you from above.

Your time with us went all too soon.
But in the short time that we had.
It was so magical and so much joy,
just to be your Mum and Dad.

Though we're left with only memories.
Darling child, they are all of you.
For with you went, not just our love.
But our hearts went with you too.

And now God has you back again
and in his tender care.
You have brought joy back into his heart.
And that of every Angel there.

And knowing we too have your love.
Helps to ease the aching pain.
And I'm sure that when our time is due,
God will share you with us once again.
