Ryley and Timothy too

by Stacy Todd
(Alvin, TX, USA)

a part of me is now gone

and i dont know what went wrong

my child, my son

gone from my womb

born too soon

never get to hear you cry

never thought that you would die

hoped and dreamed for you to come

to hold you in my arms

you never have to feel pain

sadness will never fall upon you

you are forever in God’s glory

pure and perfect



my pain was horrendous

my heart ripped in two

losing you, i lost my mind

i did not know what to do

loneliness, emptiness, sadness, fear

i never thought i’d lose someone to whom i hold so dear

i still feel pain that no one can see

my only comfort and peace come from the Lord

He sheds light upon the darkness

He gives me hope, peace and comfort

Losing you happened for a reason

to everything there is a season.

Love, Mommy



I wrote this poem after I had a miscarriage at 13 weeks gestation, I wrote it for my sweet son in Heaven. Now I had another late miscarriage at 19 weeks and this poem applies to that son as well.
