Dear Mommy, On Mother’s Day

You have created every part of me; You put me together in my mother’s womb…When I was growing there in secret, You knew that I was there. 

Psalm 139:13-18

Today I celebrate you mommy, but I do this from up above;

I know this day is sad for you, but may it be full of Love. 

You need not worry for I am safe in God’s warm embrace,

I am happy here and play all day with all my angel friends.

As you sit and cry in daddy’s arms, some may not comprehend

Your tender heart will forever miss the child you grieve, that’s me!

But know that you are a mom, MY mommy you will always be…

 

On this day it may feel cold when others seem not to care;

I wish I could take away the lasting pain you seem to bear.

I cherished every day we had and if you only knew,

The kicks and flutters you often felt were the feet and tiny wings I grew.

 

When you close your eyes at night and begin to dream,

Know that I am with you, though I cannot be seen.

Feel the little kisses on your cheek, listen to the prayers that I speak; 

And in the stillness of your heart, hear my wee voice sing,

Songs of love and peacefulness mark the gifts I bring.

Know that I wait at heaven’s gate patiently for you and dad,

We’ll all be together again, so try not to be too sad.

 

Thank you for giving me the gift of life, and taking good care of me,

On this Mother’s Day remember that I Love You for Eternity…

 

With Love and Hugs,

Your Heavenly Angel

  1. I lost a baby almost 29 years ago. Your poem touched my heart. I have offered to print up holy cards for a young woman in my family who lost her baby at 8 1/2 months into her pregnancy. She and her family are grieving for their sweet little baby. I offered to print up holy cards for them. I have been searching for a poem or prayer to put on this holy card. Your poem seems to be the most caring and hopeful message that I could find. Although this is not for Mother’s Day but for her funeral, I was wondering if you would give me permission to use your poem on her holy card to offer a sign of hope and love to this heartbroken family? May I also change a few words to make it personal to them?

    Thank you very much,
