Just Those Few Weeks

For those few weeks--

I had you to myself

And that seems too short a time

to be changed so profoundly.

In those few weeks--

I came to know you

and to love you.

You came to trust me with your life.

Oh, what a life I had planned for you!

Just those few weeks--

When I lost you.

I lost a lifetime of hopes,

plans, dreams, and aspirations...

A slice of my future simply vanished overnight.

Just those few weeks--

It wasn't enough time to convince others

how special and important you were.

How odd, a truly unique person has recently died

and no one is mourning the passing.

Just a mere few weeks--

And no "normal" person would cry all night

over a tiny, unfinshed baby,

or get depressed and withdrawn day after endless day.

No one would, so why am I?

You were just those few weeks my little one

you darted in and out of my life too quickly.

But it seems that's all the time you needed

to make my life so much richer

and give me a small glimpse of eternity.

Poem Copyright 1984 by Susan Erling Martinez

That's beautiful I found this I really liked

"Daddy please don't look so sad,momma please don't cry.*
Cause I'm in the arms of Jesus, and he sings me lullabies.*
please try not to question God, don't think he is unkind.*
Don't think he sent me to you and then changed his mind.*
You see I'm a special child, I am needed up above.*
I'm the special gift you gave Him, a product of your love.*
I'll always be there with you, so watch the sky at night.*
Look for the brightest star and know that's my halo's brilliant light.*
You'll see me in the morning frost that mists your window pane.*
That's me in the summer showers, I'll be dancing in the rain.*
When you feel a gentle breeze from a gentle wind that blows.*
Know that it's me planting a kiss upon your nose.*
When you see a child playing and your heart feels a tug,*
Don't be sad mommy, that's just me giving your heart a hug.*
So daddy don't looks so sad and momma please don't cry.*
I'm in the arms of Jesus and he sings me lullabies!"

What lovely poems!
When i had my mmc I was placed on the snowdrop ward and when i was finally discharged from hospital the snowdrops at home had just started to bloom so this poem touched me deeply:

Little Snowdrop

The world may never notice If a Snowdrop doesn't bloom,
Or even pause to wonder If the petals fall too soon.
But every life that ever forms, Or ever comes to be,
Touches the world in some small way For all eternity.
The little one we long for Was swiftly here and gone.
But the love that was then planted Is a light that still shines on.
And though our arms are empty, Our hearts know what to do.
Every beating of our hearts Says that we shall always love you.

Sometimes it seems

That all is lost

And every day is grey,

That everything you dreamed about

Has sneered and turned away,

That up ahead


Is blocking out your view,

Confusing your direction,

Just can't see your way through,

But even when

A dream has died

Another one can bloom,

Like seeds that spring

From deadened grass,

A songbird's brand new tune,

The path may change

But feet still walk

Though not on soil of old,

Through the clouds,

The burnished sun -

An incandescent gold,

Hold out your hands

And touch the warmth,

It's closer than you think,

Watch those little paper boats -

They either swim or sink,

The best are strong,

They sail along,

And weather all the storms -

A little bit of water

Doesn't mean it's

All gone wrong.

Beautiful poems ladies. Thanks for sharing. Here are a couple I came across that really touched my heart.

I never got to feel you kick
Or look into your eyes
I never got to hold you in my arms
Or hear your little cry

I never got to see your smile
Or even know your name
But you'll always be my baby
And I'll love you just the same.

They say there is a reason, they say that time will heal.
But neither time nor reason will change the way I feel.

For no one knows the heartache that lies behind my smile.
No one knows how many times I've broken down and cried.

I have to tell you something so there won't be any doubt
Your so wonderful to think of but so hard to be without.
