Poems for Infant Loss?


September 24, 2010

Lone feather floating past the sun.My friend's granddaughter is going to give birth to a child whose brain is not developing. The child will most likely be born dead. We are praying for God's miracle. Are there any beautiful, appropriate poems out there that can be cross stitched or done in calligraphy? I don't know what else to do. I know the TF Community will rise to the occasion for me. Thanks!

There's a brand new flower blooming
in God's garden up above,
radiating quiet beauty
in the presence of His love.
It's the baby from our bosom,
gift of Heaven, so soon gone.
Carefully chosen for his sweetness,
in God's choice, we must be strong.

Jesus sent his heavenly gardener
out in search of flowers rare
and he found our little son
and has taken him up there:
Blooming now for time unending,
near God's throne forevermore,
always near his Heavenly Father.

Proverbs 3:6 "Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct your paths."

I don't know who wrote this, but thought it had good words.

Do not stand at my grave and weep,
I am not there, I do not sleep.

(1) I am a thousand winds that blow.
I am the diamond glint on snow.
I am the sunlight on ripened grain.


I am the gentle autumn rain.

(2) When you wake in the morning hush,
I am the swift, uplifting rush
Of quiet birds in circling flight.
I am the soft starlight at night.

Do not stand at my grave and weep.
I am not there, I do not sleep.
(Do not stand at my grave and cry.
I am not there, I did not die!)

I don't know any; but commend you for your thoughtfulness. I suggest you call your own local hospital and ask to speak to a social worker, and explain what you are looking for. He/She may be able to help you, or connect you with families who have gone through something like this and wish to share what helped them.


I think you are very wise to want to commemorate the birth/demise of the baby, and not just try to pretend it didn't happen, or to minimize it in any way. We can still pray for a miracle, though!

When I lost my baby Gabriel, I recieved a book titled I'll hold you in heaven that was wonderful. I also wrote a beautiful poem but it is pretty long. I will type it if you are interested let me know.
