An Angel's Baby

For nine whole months I carried you,
Safe inside my womb,
You kicked and punched me as you grew,
Inside you ran out of room.

You made me look forward,
My life had a new meaning,
Whenever I felt like I was alone,
You knew exactly how I was feeling.

You'd nudge my ribs so gently,
To remind me you were there,
And in turn I patted my bump so carefully,
To tell you I was still aware.

I couldn't wait for your arrival,
I'd planned it since the very first day,
Wondering what you'd look like,
Knowing I'd love you in every single way.

And that is how it happened,
Just how I had thought,
The day you came into my world,
Delivered on the delivery ward.

Then things began to change,
You needed help to to survive,
I prayed to God to help you,
Then just two days later, you sadly died.

I held you in my arms so gently,
And rocked you to and fro,
Telling you how much I loved you,
And said, "It's time for you to go."

God came down with his angels,
And took you gently in his care,
He turned around and wiped my tears,
And said, "He'll always live on in there."

Pointing to my heart,
Which felt like it had broke,
The angels needed a new angel,
And yours was the name they spoke.

So now you're an angels baby,
Though I know you're still with me,
For now you've just gone to play,
In Heaven's nursery.
