I've just found out that one of C's nursery assistants lost her baby 2 days after he was born a few weeks ago. Very unexpected, very sudden, cause as yet unknown. I'm just so so sad for her and her partner, she is an absolutely star and looked after C in the nursery baby room. I've got a little card for them and I wanted to write a little poem in there - does anyone have or has anyone seen one that might be suitable? I know her son's name and I will make sure I will use it (I know from on here people have appreciated that).
big hugs to you M, and RIP to your baby J, your forever angel

One sticks out in my mind, il try find it...

This isn't the one im thinking of, still looking, but I remember feeling comforted by this one. I don't know how suitable for a card though?
We are connected, My child and I,
by an invisible cord, not seen by the eye.
It's not like the cord that connects
us 'til birth
This cord can't be seen by any on Earth.
This cord does its work right from the start.
It binds us together, attatched to my heart.
I know that it's there, though no one can see,
The invisible cord from my child to me.
The strength of this cord is hard to describe.
It can't be destroyed, it can't be denied.
It's stronger than any cord man could create,
It withstands the test, can hold any weight.
And though you are gone,
Though you are not here with me,
The cord is still there, but no one can see.
It pulls at my heart, I am bruised...I am sore,
But this cord is my lifeline, as never before.
I am thankful that God connects us this way,
A mother and child--Death can't take it away!

I remember seeing a really beautiful one a few times back on the PP - I'll try and find it for you
Such sad news xx

An angel opened up the book of life,
to record the baby's birth,
and whispered as she closed the book
"Too beautiful for earth".

Those are beautiful. Thanks ladies.

Deedee- that one actually gave me goosebumps. Such sad news.

I think it's a really lovely idea bw, the poem dd mentioned actually really upset me when someone put it in a card for William, it just really struck a chord that he wasn't given a chance iyswim. I love the 'an angel never dies' poem, it really meant something to us but I remember on pp a few non religious people really did not like it so I suppose its very personal.
There's one about even tiny footprints make an impact (or similar) il try to find as that's nice too.
Poor family :-(

Don’t let them say I wasn’t born,
That something stopped my heart
I felt each tender squeeze you gave,
I’ve loved you from the start.
Although my body you can’t hold
It doesn’t mean I’m gone
This world was worthy, not of me
God chose that I move on.
I know the pain that drowns your soul,
What you are forced to face
You have my word, I’ll fill your arms,
Someday we will embrace.
You’ll hear that it was meant to be,
God doesn’t make mistakes
But that wont soften your worst blow,
Or make your heart not ache.
I’m watching over all you do,
Another child you’ll bear
Believe me when I say to you,
That I am always there.
There will come a time, I promise you,
When you will hold my hand,
Stroke my face and kiss my lips
And then you’ll understand.
Although I’ve never breathed your air,
Or gazed into your eyes
That doesn’t mean I never was,
An Angel never dies.

I used this one is a card for my friend who lost her little boy
These are my tiny footprints, so perfect and so small.
These tiny footprints, never touched the ground at all.
Not one tiny footprint, for now I have my wings.
These tiny footprints were meant for other things.
You will hear my tiny footprints, in the patter of the rain.
Gentle drops like angel tears, of joy and not from pain.
You will see my tiny footprints, in each butterfly's lazy dance.
I'll let you know I'm with you, if you give me just a chance.
You will see my tiny footprints, in the rustle of the leaves.
I will whisper names into the wind, and call each one that grieves.
Most of all, these tiny footprints, are found in Mummy's heart
Because even though I'm gone now, we'll never truly part."

I liked that one CP. The one which im trying to think of had something about baby cuddling you when youre sleeping or something along those lines..
28/08/2013 at 15:37
Alocin, that one made me cry. I think I'll use that one.
CP, that one is beautiful but I don't know how religious she is (if at all) plus her son was born and lived for a few days (he was at home for a couple of nights before he died) so doesn't feel quite right IYSWIM.
Hugs for anyone that has had to go through this

I actually really liked the cord one.
To be honest as we are all clearly different in this maybe just a few words from you instead? I know I got a religious one after Theo died and I was quite upset by that because one I'm not religious but mostly because it was about it being okay because god had taken him.
Sorry for their loss, if they want to speak to anyone you know where I am Bluewater x

Such sad news. xx
We had this at Sammy's funeral.
Thinking of You with Love
We thought of you with love today,
but that is nothing new.
We thought about you yesterday,
and days before that too.
We think of you in silence,
we often speak your name.
All we have are memories,
and your picture in a frame.
Your memory is our keepsake,
with which we will never part.
God has you in His keeping,
we have you in our hearts.
A million times we`ve wanted you.
A million times we cried.
If love could only have saved you,
you never would have died.
It broke our hearts to lose you.
But you didn`t go alone.
For a part of us went with you...
the day God called you Home.
