unborn


i still remember

the joy i felt

when i laid eyes on

those life-changing two lines


i rushed to tell your father

we were ecstatic

and tried to grasp the reality that we were parents

and then we made a video from us to you


loved ones were delighted

grandparents were relieved

you see, we didn't want children

and then we did


one autumn afternoon

i saw a deluge of red

a kind neighbour drove me to the hospital

we drove in silence


your father met us there

my doctor gently tells us

there's no heartbeat

my heart shattered


i mourned

i picked up the pieces

you were six weeks old

but you were already my child


i will never forget you

i will never forget losing you

you will forever be a part of me

my darling
