22/3/2017 A small life lost before it had truly begun
A life began
in the dark and warm.
Out of sight
with the exception of occasional viewings...
what wonders of modern medicine!
A breath held for eleven weeks
turned out to be three weeks too long
for this tiny unnamed soul.
We will never see your face, little one...
we will never hold your hand.
You will never know the love of your brothers
nor that which we lavish upon them so generously,
May God hold you in his arms,
tonight and ever more.
