Do You Know?

Not much to say tonight, but here's a poem I received from a friend...

Do You Know?

Do you know how hard it is
To hold a baby who doesn’t cry?
Do you know how hard it is
To tell that baby Goodbye?

Do you know how hard it is
To look at an empty bed?
Knowing your child should be there
Resting her sleepy head?

Do you know how hard it is
Feeling you’re to blame?
And no matter what they tell you
You'll always feel the same.

Do you know the heartache
Knowing she's gone for good?
And feeling that you didn't
Do all the things you could.

Do you know how hard it is
To hear that it's Gods will?
Do you know the emptiness
When your child is born still?

  1. okay...so i have to admit i read your ENTIRE blog today! i have to work tonight, and have been bumming around the house. So, first i am soooo incredibly sorry for your losses! it makes me so sad that you have had to endure this pain 3 times. #2, how far along were you with your son? i might have missed it when reading. 3rd, the counter you have of when your hubby is returning, my husband made one for me on excel when he was deployed...did the same thing, minus the cute comments...wonder if he can figure out ow to do that next time! lol...i thought he was the biggest nerd in the world, but turns out, others are doing it too!!! (kind of wonder if someone just took his program and expanded on it:) 4th, i am soooooo excited James will be home soon, i cannot imagine how you got through all of this w/ him deployed! you are one strong cookie, but then again, you ARE an army wife, and we are known to be strong! well, that is all for now, but IF you are interested, you can check out my blog journeyoflifeandluv.blogspot.com, i just wish i had written during my pregnancy!! i will say i am a little jealous of you for having those memories (as you said, those are the only memories we as angel mommies have, and i wish i had more pics of the experience:)

  2. Thanks for your kind message. :) How funny regarding the deployment counter! I'll definitely go check out your blog. It's so sad to see fellow angel moms out there, but comforting at the same time. Oh, and by the way, we lost Jake at 21 1/2 weeks. :(
