“Just For A Moment”
(From A Silent Love, Adrienne Ryan)

"Our hands have touched, our paths have crossed
A love is gained, a love is lost
Just for a moment I kissed the face
Of an innocent child I can’t replace.

Just for a moment a maternal touch
Would say the words that meant so much
A soft caress, the gentle tears
That will make those minutes last for years.

Just for a moment, I held your hand
My broken heart in your command
So much to tell you, so little time
Why were you punished, what was the crime?

They took part of me when they took you away
As much as I love you, you weren’t meant to stay
I gave you a hug that for always must last
As facing the future means leaving the past.

Our souls have merged, I live for you
Perhaps I’m living your life too
I will carry on, I can always stand tall
Because just for that moment, I had it all."

DD2 - blissfull!

A Child Of Mine
by: Edgar Guest

I will lend you, for a little time,
A child of mine, He said.
For you to love the while he lives,
And mourn for when he’s dead.
It may be six or seven years,
Or twenty-two or three.
But will you, till I call him back,
Take care of him for Me?
He’ll bring his charms to gladden you,
And should his stay be brief.
You’ll have his lovely memories,
As solace for your grief.
I cannot promise he will stay,
Since all from earth return.
But there are lessons taught down there,
I want this child to learn.
I’ve looked the wide world over,
In search for teachers true.
And from the throngs that crowd life’s lanes,
I have selected you.
Now will you give him all your love,
Nor think the labour vain.
Nor hate me when I come
To take him home again?
I fancied that I heard them say,
‘Dear Lord, Thy will be done!’
For all the joys Thy child shall bring,
The risk of grief we’ll run.
We’ll shelter him with tenderness,
We’ll love him while we may,
And for the happiness we’ve known,
Forever grateful stay.
But should the angels call for him,
Much sooner than we’ve planned.
We’ll brave the bitter grief that comes,
And try to understand.
May the Lord Bless you and Keep you and may his face shine on you all the days of your life.

Ali-Cat we were sent that poem when our daughter died.
It arrived with a letter from a lady I know who had lost 3 little ones. She said that someone had given it to her when she was going through it all and that she thought it might help me.

I've been in tears reading this thread tonight.

Miss you so much baby girl xxxxx

Thinking of you today Muzza.... I still remember the last time we talked, and you told me that I would always be your sister and that you loved me like a real sister... I'll hold that moment in my heart forever.....
I wish you were still here with us.... there is a big hole in our lives where you are supposed to be......

RIP Murray - No longer in our lives, forever in our hearts. Taken from us 1st November 2008.

Would you please add:

Hope Fleur, 27th February 2006, 11 weeks gestation, gyno said after D & C was not an embryo but foetus so possibly 12 - 13 weeks?. No heartbeat at 12 weeks.

Always and forever in our hearts. Never forgotten.

If I Could Be Where You Are"
Lyrics written by Roma Ryan
Song by Enya

Where are you this moment
Only in my dreams
You're missing, but you're always
a heartbeat from me.

I'm lost now without you.
I don't know where you are.
I keep watching,
I keep hoping,
but time keeps us apart.

Is there a way I can find you?
Is there a sign I should know?
Is there a road I could follow,
to bring you back home?

Winter lies before me,
Now you're so far away
In the darkness of my dreaming
The light of you will stay

If I could be close beside you,
If I could be where you are,
If I could reach out and touch you,
And bring you back home.

Is there a way I can find you?
Is there a sign I should know?
Is there a road I could follow,
to bring you back home?

To me...

Love Mummy, Daddy and your little brother, Sebastian
