Yesterday we lost our second grandchild, I say we my husband passed overt two years ago so I’m carrying this alone. Our first granddaughter was born sleeping in January 2021 at 20 weeks, our other daughter had our grandson a couple of days ago prematurely at 34 weeks, he died yesterday. I’m finding it hard to share my sadness as the girls dad is no longer here, I’m finding it even more upsetting because it’s like I’ve lost a piece of him all over again. Our poor girls have been through such losses, their Dad 2 1/2 years ago & now each a child. But today is also a happy day because the daughter who lost her child first is pregnant again & it’s her baby shower today. So we have to celebrate this joy for her even though it’s tinged with sadness for her sister who is still in hospital. I write as therapy & I can only share this poem on here, so I hope you don’t mind. Take care all of you coping with loss
Though only here for a little while
Before joining the angels above
When I first saw your beautiful face
You filled my heart with love.
Though I will never get to hold you
I will carry you within my heart
You’re now with baby Robin & Grandad
And we’ll never be far apart.
And your wonderful Mummy & Daddy
Their love will surround you forever
You’ll always feel them there with you
Their little boy, baby Alexander.
So fly high baby boy & shine bright
At night we’ll see your twinkling star
We will see you in sunshine & rainbows
We will always know where you are.
