We remember you, baby girl
you lived inside your mama
and we recognize and honor that life
the gifts you brought to those who knew you
We wanted you to stay with us
here on earth
and you are missed
We remember you, baby girl.
This weekend marks the six month anniversary of the stillbirth of a friend’s baby. Today, I went to the woods to remember her. I took a picture to contribute to the virtual memorial her mother is planning. On the version I will give to my friend, I included the baby’s name on the larger leaf.
Endings before beginnings are always sad. I even feel the loss of a bud loosing the opportunity to bloom.
