Miscarriage Poems - To Our Baby Aiden

We received this tender miscarriage poem from Nicholas who told us:

'My wife miscarried with our son Aiden 2 months ago. I help out as much as I can. When she cries at night I wipe her tears and hold her tight. I tell her that we are in this together and we will make it through this.'

To Our Baby Aiden

My body is alive but I feel empty inside,
The son I was supposed to have -
Aiden is his name, my son I can not have.
He is with God now, engraved in my mind.
It was amazing to finally see your face,
But saddened deeply that you weren't alive.
I prayed to God several times before I knew you had died,
To keep you safe,
I cried with hopeful eyes.

After you were born, looking so peaceful.
I cried, I didn't want to say goodbye.
I prayed to God and asked to keep you safe with Him.
As I paced back and forth all night to make sure you were still there
I finally said goodbye in despair.

Our baby Aiden, we wanted you to survive.
Two years we had tried.
We were so excited when you had arrived.
We picked out so many things for you; you would have had a happy life.
We are sad to know that we won't watch you grow up to be a man,
But we are happy to know you are safe with God alive within.

We Will Never Forget You Aiden and We Will Always Love You!
With Tons and Tons of Love,

~ Your Daddy, Nicholas Hise
