Miscarriage Poems - Today Is Your Day

Today Is Your Day

Today, my sweet Angel, is your day,
A day you were due to be brought into my waiting arms.

I never got to hear your heart beat,
Never knew if you were a boy or girl,
But in my Heart and Soul, 
I truly believe you were meant to be my only girl.

Today is the one day that I mourn you,
The day I talk to you,
And cry my heart out for you.
The day I want to scream,
And beg Him to let you come home,

Home to me.

I'm sorry I can't let you go,
9 years is a long time to miss you.

I don't care if no one else understands that I need
Just this day every year for myself to go crazy. 
I'll be back to normal,
As normal as can be,
For your brothers after today is over.

~ R. Davis
