This saturday, the 22nd, is my daughter's 1st birthday. she was stillborn when i was 39 weeks pregnant. I'm having a memorial for her on her birthday and I was wondering if anyone had any good poems i could post up with her pictures for this weekend. So mama's out there, could you help a fellow mommy out?
PLEASE AND THANKS!

I am so sorry to hear that. A mother to another I feel your loss, I just loss my 7wk old pregnancy Friday. I was able to catch the remains and put them in a cup after my doctor's appointment tomorrow i'm going to get a silver keepsake box and seal it shut and bury my baby next to my grandparents. It's a family owned cemetary.Going to get a statue of some kind, and find a thing to put the date and stuff onthe grave. I'm trying to think of some good ideas for you. I would get a cake and put Happy Birthday with your daughter's name on it, and get a number 1 candle. And sing happy birthday, like you would as if she was here. Maybe even write about the day in a diary or something.

We little knew that morning
That God was going to call your name
In life we loved you dreary
In death we do the same
It broke our hearts to lose you
But you did not go alone
For part of us went with you
The day God called you home
You left us peaceful memories
Your love is still our guide
And although we cannot see you
You are always at our side




But do not stand at my grave and weep. I am not there. I do not sleep. I am the thousand winds that blow; I am the diamond glints on snow; I am the sunlight on ripened grain; I am the gentle Autumn's rain. When you awake in the morning's hush I am the swift uplifting rush of quiet birds in circled flight. I am the soft star that shines at night. Do not stand at my grave and cry, I am not there. I did not die. I was, I am, and I always will be me, your memories will keep me alice. So small, yet the biggest one of all, I am, and always will be.




I know how much you love me,as much as
I love you,and each time that you think of me,
I know you'll miss me too.




A million times we've times needed you,
A million times we've cried.
If love alone couldn've saved you, you never would've died.
If all the world was ours to give,
We would give it yes, and more,
To see you coming up the steps,
A heart of gold stopped beating,
Two smiling eyes closed to rest,
God broke our hearts to prove to us,
He only takes the best.



PS: I have TONS if you need.

The world may never notice
If a Snowdrop doesn't bloom,
Or even pause to wonder
If the petals fall too soon.
But every life that ever forms,
Or ever comes to be,
Touches the world in some small way
For all eternity.



The little one we long for
Was swiftly here and gone.
But the love that was then planted
Is a light that still shines on.
And though our arms are empty,
Our hearts know what to do.
Every beating of our hearts
Says that we do love you.

I'm so sorry for your loss..



An angel wrote in the Book of Life
My baby's date of birth
Then whispered as she closed the book
"Too beautiful for Earth"

My Little Angel
I felt your presence there inside of me,
nestled soft and warm;
Sweet scent of baby's breath,
precious words left unadorned.
I saw your tiny heartbeat,
then I knew that you were fine;
A perfect baby we created,
one that would be mine.
Then that tragic day it came
there was nothing I could do,
Only wait and hope
for the precious life of you.
Yes in the beginning
your daddy was afraid;
Only he would love you unconditional
and never run away.
He loved you more this I do know,
as he cried for you that day,
When the doctor said that you were gone,
daddy wanted you to stay.
He would have held you close to him,
and see your perfect form,
A gift of daddy's love,
would have kept you safe and warm.
Only now you are an angel over me
beautiful and bare,
My heart would hurt if you cried for me
and mommy was not there.
Still we are together in my heart and memories,
You are still a part of my memory.
Rest gentle now 'sweet baby' there is no pain
you are never alone,
I know you are with the guiding angels
in you peaceful home.
I will come with you someday
only now is not my time,
Then we will be together again
again you will be mine.

An angel in the book of life wrote down my baby's birth
Then whispered as she closed the book, "Too beautiful for Earth."


Some ideas for remembrance: plant a rose bush, let ballons go, or butterflies, get a special windchime (with your baby's pic, if possible), so that whenever the wind blows, the music of the chime will remind you she's still a part of you.

So sorry for your loss...
