    LULLABY OF LOVE by Serene Allison
    Dedicated to our baby in Heaven



    Baby. . .

    I wish you could have stayed,

    I miss you growing inside of me.

    Baby. . .

    I would have loved to have seen your face,

    I want to hold you endlessly.



    But even though I won’t feel you in my arms

    I hold your memory in my heart.



    CHORUS:

    And I’ll sing with the angels

    A lullaby of love,

    And as you’re soothed by feathered wings

    In your cradle high above,

    Hear my voice. . . your mother’s lullaby of love.



    Baby. . .

    If I could only look in your eyes

    And you could see mine shine with how much I adore you.

    Baby. . .

    Were they the color of your daddy’s or mine?

    And I know they had a beautiful hue.



    I wonder what would have been your name,

    But I’m so glad you came. . . for awhile. . .



    CHORUS:

    And I’ll sing with the angels

    A lullaby of love,

    And as you’re soothed by feathered wings

    In your cradle high above

    Hear my voice. . . your mother’s lullaby of love.



    BRIDGE:

    One thing I know I haven’t lost you,

    You’re with your Creator by a celestial stream,

    You were made for heaven, darling,

    One day I’ll hold you and it won’t be a dream.



    CHORUS AGAIN.

    All That I Am Just feel better BY Santana and Steven Tyler from Aerosmith

    She said I feel stranded
    And I can’t tell anymore
    If we coming or I’m going
    It’s not how I planned it
    I’ve got a key to the door
    But it just won’t open

    And I know, I know, I know
    Part of me says let it go
    That life happens for a reason
    I don’t, I don’t, I don’t
    It goes I never went before
    But this time, this time

    I’m gonna try anything that just feel better
    Tell me what to do
    You know I can’t see through the haze around me
    And I do anything that just feel better

    And I can’t find my way
    Girl I need a change
    And I do anything that just feel better
    Any little thing that just feel better

    She said I need you to hold me
    I’m a little far from the shore
    And I’m afraid of sinking
    You’re the only one who knows me
    And who doesn’t ignore
    That my soul is weeping

    I know, I know, I know
    Part of me says let it go
    Everything must have it seasons
    Round and round it goes
    And every day’s a one before
    But this time, this time

    I’m gonna try anything that just feel better
    Tell me what to do
    You know I can’t see through the haze around me
    And I do anything that just feel better

    And I can’t find my way
    God I need a change
    And I do anything that just feel better
    Any little thing that just feel better

    Long try to holding on
    To all the things I ought to leave behind, yeah
    It’s really getting nowhere
    I think I need a little help this time!

    Yeah...

    I’m gonna try anything that just feel better
    Tell me what to do
    You know I can’t see through the haze around me
    And I do anything that just feel better

    And I can’t find my way
    Girl I need a change
    And I do anything that just feel better
    Any little thing that just feel better

    Watermark \ Glory Baby

    Glory baby you slipped away as fast as we could say baby…baby..
    You were growing, what happened dear?
    You disappeared on us baby…baby..
    Heaven will hold you before we do
    Heaven will keep you safe until we’re home with you…
    Until we’re home with you…

    Miss you everyday
    Miss you in every way
    But we know there’s a
    day when we will hold you
    We will hold you
    You’ll kiss our tears away
    When we’re home to stay
    Can’t wait for the day when we will see you
    We will see you
    But baby let sweet Jesus hold you
    ‘till mom and dad can hold you…
    You’ll just have heaven before we do
    You’ll just have heaven before we do

    Sweet little babies, it’s hard to
    understand it ‘cause we’re hurting
    We are hurting
    But there is healing
    And we know we’re stronger people through the growing
    And in knowing-
    That all things work together for our good
    And God works His purposes just like He said He would…
    Just like He said He would…

    BRIDGE:
    I can’t imagine heaven’s lullabies
    and what they must sound like
    But I will rest in knowing, heaven is your home
    And it’s all you’ll ever know…all you’ll ever know…
    ~~~~~~~~~~~

    This song (Glory Baby) is sung by a mom who experienced 2 miscarriages and she sings it with such meaning. Her DH helps with the backup vocals, so that touches my heart to hear them both singing it together.

    This next one was written by 2 sisters, Seren & Pearl its on their album called Peace All Over Me. In the jacket, it says that Serene dedicated this song to her baby, but I thought I remember reading somewher that both sisters have experienced MC. Maybe the other sister lost her baby after the CD was produced. anyway here's the lyrics:

    Oooh! wait a minute! I just found the lyrics all typed out for me with the intro to boot! Here it is:




    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~Child Ment in the intro, but not in the lyrics
    LULLABY OF LOVE



    I lost a baby between my first and second children. Although it was an early miscarriage, it was the hardest thing I have ever gone through. I was so excited to be expecting another life, that when the pregnancy test showed positive, I went into my yard and literally did cartwheels of joy.



    In the middle of the night I would wake up crying and tell my husband how much I missed my lost baby, our baby who I would never get to hold.

    I wrote this song as a tribute to my baby in heaven and I didn’t plan on anyone hearing it besides my husband.



    One week later I went to an Above Rubies retreat to sing and many ladies came up to me sympathetically and shared their story of losing a baby. I didn’t realize how prevalent miscarriages were, and ended up singing this song as a tribute to their babies as well.



    When Pearl and I sing this song I can hardly get through it without crying, although God has healed this aching wound. Pearl has also had a miscarriage and sings this song for her baby.



    When the pain was still fresh and deep, a lady came up to me with her arm around her teenage daughter and told me something that was very healing. She said, “This wonderful daughter of mine has been such a blessing to me and I can’t imagine not having her. I wouldn’t have had her had I not had a miscarriage previously, as she was conceived within the nine months I would have carried my other baby.



    “Although I miss my baby and long to see him/her, I know my baby was made for heaven and is cradled in God’s love and will never know the pain or darkness of this world. God gave me two babies instead of just one; one to love here on earth and one I am looking forward to meeting and we will worship our Lord together.”



    Another word of encouragement I received was from my father-in-law who, when I sobbingly told him I lost a baby, said “No! That is the one thing you haven’t done or never have to worry about.” When I thought about this for a while, the truth of that statement sunk in. Yes! My baby is found, and in our Creator’s presence. I will never have to wonder if he or she will be lost to the wiles of this world, but is in heaven where we are all going. We are just pilgrims here and our babies that have gone on are at our destination. What a hope.



    If you have had a miscarriage too, maybe these words of encouragement will help you also. Above all, I pray our God of comfort will carry you and hold you in his arms until His peace washes all the pain away.

    This song helped me a lot with my mc. It is by Natalie Grant and is called "Held."



    Two months is too little.
    They let him go.
    They had no sudden healing.
    To think that providence would
    Take a child from his mother while she prays
    Is appalling.

    Who told us we’d be rescued?
    What has changed and why should we be saved from nightmares?
    We’re asking why this happens
    To us who have died to live?
    It’s unfair.

    Chorus:
    This is what it means to be held.
    How it feels when the sacred is torn from your life
    And you survive.
    This is what it is to be loved.
    And to know that the promise was

    When everything fell we’d be held.

    This hand is bitterness.
    We want to taste it, let the hatred numb our sorrow.
    The wise hands opens slowly to lilies of the valley and tomorrow.

    (Chorus)
    This is what it means to be held.
    How it feels when the sacred is torn from your life
    And you survive.
    This is what it is to be loved.
    And to know that the promise was
    When everything fell we’d be held.

    Bridge:
    If hope is born of suffering.
    If this is only the beginning.
    Can we not wait for one hour watching for our Savior?

    (Chorus)
    This is what it means to be held.
    How it feels when the sacred is torn from your life
    And you survive.
    This is what it is to be loved.
    And to know that the promise was
    When everything fell we’d be held.

    Sheena this post you made was a stroke of genius. I just had to make it an announcement! There is so much comfort here and so many many tears. Thank you.

    Wings



    Through the sadness and despair
    May you have wings of strength
    To help ease the sorrow

    Through the anger and desperation
    May you have wings of hope
    A glimpse into tomorrow

    Each fearful step of this journey
    May you have wings of courage
    To help you face each new day

    In the darkest hours of grief
    May you have wings of light
    To guide your steps along the way

    May the warmth of your precious child surround you
    And may you find peace and love,

    Within the wings of an angels
    Sent from up above…

    "Calling Your Name"



    If you listen in silence
    as dawn breaks in my home
    you hear echos and cries
    they're calling your name

    the emptiness
    it aches
    its corners, so suddenly
    hollow

    Waiting at the door
    is your bassinet, untouched
    ready to cradle you
    its calling your name

    in the bedroom corner
    sits your crib, good as new
    waiting to cuddle you
    its calling your name

    Neat in the closet
    your clothes left unworn
    they're needing to wrap you
    they're calling your name

    Displayed on the mantle
    your frame rests, unfilled
    wanting to display you
    its calling your name

    Curled up in the corner
    Your mother sits still
    Her arms outstretched to hold you
    she's calling your name

    Her boosom before her
    heavy with milk
    they're waiting to nurse you
    they're calling your name

    Her heart beats inside her
    her pulse so alive
    its waiting to love you
    it's calling your name

    Her eyes close slowly
    they're filling with tears
    they're wishing to see you
    they're calling your name

    Her lips purse up tightly
    they're trembling in fear
    they're wanting to kiss you
    they're calling your name

    Dear child, we're calling
    your name left unsaid
    but a face of an angel
    we're calling instead

    "Happy Mother's Day To Me"


    A woman is in line before me, her children by her side
    The cashier tells her how beautiful they are and the mother smiles with pride

    She tells her Happy Mother's Day as she hands her the receipt
    When she waits on me she says nothing, not a word not a peep

    She smiles blankly and hands me my change
    She can not tell that I am a Mother just the same

    My child is not here with me, but I am a mother still
    He's in Heaven with Jesus and he's my son Will

    But how do I say to her that I am a mother too?
    She surely will ask me all about you

    She will be uncomfortable hearing about my son above
    The one who makes me a mother and fills my heart with love

    She will not understand my need to hear her say to me
    Happy Mother's Day, as my child she can not see

    I ask God to comfort me and hold my baby tight
    I can't be with him now and I miss him with all my might

    My husband puts his arm around me, as he understands my tears
    He softly whispers in my ear, where no one else can hear

    Happy Mother's Day my sweet, our angel's up above
    He's sending down kisses and all of his love

    You are a mother still though our child has gone away
    He or she is in our hearts and in our souls, and there will always stay

    Artist: Backstreet Boys
    Album: Never Gone
    Title: Incomplete


    Empty spaces fill me up with holes
    Distant faces with no place left to go
    Without you within me I can't find no rest
    Where I'm going is anybody's guess

    I've tried to go on like I never knew you
    I'm awake but my world is half asleep
    I pray for this heart to be unbroken
    But without you all I'm going to be is incomplete

    Voices tell me I should carry on
    But I am swimming in an ocean all alone
    Baby, my baby
    It's written on your face
    You still wonder if we made a big mistake

    I've tried to go on like I never knew you

    I'm awake but my world is half asleep
    I pray for this heart to be unbroken
    But without you all I'm going to be is incomplete

    I don't mean to drag it on, but I can't seem to let you go
    I don't wanna make you face this world alone
    I wanna let you go (alone)

    I've tried to go on like I never knew you
    I'm awake but my world is half asleep
    I pray for this heart to be unbroken
    But without you all I'm going to be is incomplete

    Incomplete

    What an excellent idea:
    Here are some poems that have helped me.

    Remembering You
    We thought of you today,
    But that is nothing new
    We thought of you yesterday
    And will tomorrow, too
    We think of you in silence
    And make no outward show
    For what it meant to lose you
    Only those who love you know
    Remembering you is easy
    We do it everyday
    It's the heartache of losing you
    That will never go away.

    And Life Goes On . . .

    A flower bursts full of life
    Flourishes, withers, then disappears
    All within the blink of an eye
    Yet life goes on . . . always the same

    A bird enters the world with a song
    Sings for a few seasons, then vanishes
    All within the blink of an eye
    Yet life goes on . . . always the same

    A child draws his first breath
    Learns, grows, then passes away
    All within the blink of an eye
    And life goes on . . . but never the same.

    By L. Dustin Twede

    I am the one
    To remember his soul.
    The one who knows him best.
    I am the one to speak his name
    When others forget.
    I knew his spirit
    And what was to be.
    I am the one to carry
    His life in my heart.
    Others remember through me.
    I am the one to bring joy and hope
    To his memory as it fades.
    I knew him first and saw him last.
    Everyone looks to me
    Now that he is gone.
    I am his mommy.
    By Anonymous

    One day at a time
    Is all I can bear
    If I can make it through this day
    Then I can look back tomorrow
    And know that I am strong
    Even in my weakness
    And sometimes being weak
    Is the only way I can be, at all...

    I Wanted So Much for You

    I wanted so much more for you, my sweet little baby.
    I wanted to change your diapers, not my life.
    I wanted to nurse you, not my grief.
    I wanted to dress you up, not bury you down.
    I wanted to hear the sounds of you crying for me at night,
    Not my own sounds of crying for you,
    My innocent baby boy.
    I wanted to see you grow, not the grass upon the grave.
    I wanted to see you asleep in your crib, not in the casket.
    I wanted to give you live, not death.
    I wanted to show you off, not alone go on.
    I wanted to comb your fuzzy hair, not save a lock of it.
    I wanted to pick up after you, not put down my dreams for you.
    I wanted to hold you in my arms, not this doll.
    I wanted to walk you late at night, not my fears.
    I wanted so much for you,
    My newly born, newly gone-child.
    I wanted so much more
    I wanted so much
    I wanted
    I wanted you.
    ~Maria LaFond Visscher

    Tiny Angels

    Tiny Angels rest your wings
    Sit with me a while.
    How I long to hold your hand,
    And see your tender smile.
    Tiny Angel, look at me,
    I want this image clear…..
    That I will forget your precious face
    Is my biggest fear.
    Tiny Angel can you tell me,
    Why you have gone away?
    You weren’t here for very long….
    Why is it, you couldn’t stay?
    Tiny Angel shook his head,
    “These things I do not know….
    But I do know that you love me,
    And that I love you so.”

    The Cord
    We are connected,
    My child and I, by
    An invisible cord
    Not seen by the eye.

    It's not like the cord
    That connects us 'til birth
    This cord can't been seen
    By any on Earth.

    This cord does it's work
    Right from the start.
    It binds us together
    Attached to my heart.

    I know that it's there
    Though no one can see
    The invisible cord
    From my child to me.

    The strength of this cord
    Is hard to describe.
    It can't be destroyed
    It can't be denied.

    It's stronger than any cord
    Man could create
    It withstands the test
    Can hold any weight.

    And though you are gone,
    Though you're not here with me,
    The cord is still there
    But no one can see.

    It pulls at my heart
    I am bruised...I am sore,
    But this cord is my lifeline
    As never before.

    I am thankful that God
    Connects us this way
    A mother and child
    Death can't take it away!

    Don’t tell me

    Please don’t tell me you know how I feel,
    Unless you have lost your child too,
    Please don’t tell me my broken heart will heal,
    Because that is just not true,
    Please don’t tell me my son is in a better place,
    Though it is true, I want him here with me,
    Don’t tell me someday I’ll hear his voice, see his face,
    Beyond today I cannot see,
    Don’t tell me it is time to move on,
    Because I cannot,
    Don’t tell me to face the fact he is gone,
    Because denial is something I can’t stop
    Don’t tell me to be thankful for the time I had,
    Because I wanted more,
    Don’t tell me when I am my old self you will be glad,
    I’ll never be as I was before,
    What you can tell me is you will be here for me,
    That you will listen when I talk of my child,
    You can share with me my precious memories,
    You can even cry with me for a while,
    And please don’t hesitate to say his name,
    Because it is something I long to hear everyday,
    Friend please realize that I can never be the same,
    But if you stand by me, you may like the new person I become someday.
    ~Judy Walker

    Never

    He would never throw a fit in a restaurant or store
    He wouldn’t pick his nose and wipe buggers on the floor

    He wouldn’t need a baby sitter after coming home from school
    He wouldn’t get bad grades, skip class or ever be uncool

    He wouldn’t sneak out and make his mother worry all night long
    He wouldn’t ever complain when I’d make him mow the lawn

    He would never be bad at anything he did especially when it came to sports
    He would never have to be a cheerleader of some sort

    He wouldn’t fuss or cry over the things I’d make him do
    He wouldn’t give up any hits in his major league debut

    Most of you just laughed and smile when I told you the things my child would never do
    Now I’m here to tell you that all of them came true

    By the sounds of this you might think that all of that is grand
    But now I wish he could do all the things I didn’t think I’d be able to stand
    Because I will never get to
    See him Crawl or Walk
    Hear him Sing or Talk
    I will never get to play catch with him, or take him to a game
    I can’t teach him how to ride a bike, or play out in the rain

    I know that all things I’ll miss are really not that bad
    Because I’ll love you all the time, and I will always be your dad

    For all you parents and parents to be, this is my advice to you
    Never think or say what your child will or will not do
    Just love them to the fullest
    And they will make your dreams come true

    By Jason Frost

    “What we have once enjoyed and deeply loved we can never lose, for all that we love deeply becomes a part of us,”

    I'll Never Know
    By LisaMarie Emerle

    How do I say goodbye ... when I didn't get to say hello?
    I want so bad to keep you ... how do I let you go?
    I have so many dreams, so much love I want to share
    There's nothing I can do ...why is life unfair?
    You're my perfect angel...I dreamed you long ago
    I never got to hold you but it breaks my heart to let you go
    The pain and confusion I feel inside
    I can not explain...I can not describe
    God will rock you in your cradle and watch you as you sleep
    I will love you in my heart ... it's all I get to keep
    you are blessed my child ... you're in heaven up above
    You'll never be alone...you have Mommy & Daddy's love
    Hush my little baby...you need not ever cry
    You were always wanted! I wish you didn't die
    You'll be my sunshine in the daylight and the brightest star at night
    Reach for God's hand and go to the light
    I was blessed to have you briefly...even though I have to let you go
    I wish I knew the reason but I guess I'll never know
