    I wrote the following poems and thought that some of you might be able to relate to them and that they may even help you:

    From the moment we met, we knew we were meant for each other
    We knew that someday he would want to be a father and I’d want to be a mother
    We spent our first 4 years loving, talking and sharing
    No matter what we went through we nurtured each other; caring

    We had happy times, bad times, sad times, great times; a life together
    No matter how big the storm; with each other we would weather
    We were so close, we could face anything with each other, so in love
    So strong, compassionate, sensitive, together we could rise above

    We decided the time had come to turn the 2 of us into 3
    We were so excited and happy to extend our family tree
    We would buy things for the baby, little clothes and little toys
    We even picked mutual colours to suit little girls or little boys

    We were disappointed the first month, we thought it would happen right away
    But we were sure after a little more trying we’d get a positive any day
    So we kept trying and waiting…the months kept going by
    Feeling devastated after every failed month and together we wondered why

    We tried charts, tests, kits and all the natural things
    But it didn’t make a difference, the disappointment again would ring
    We wondered why it took so long when we were doing everything right
    We would lay awake with these thoughts deep into the night

    Family and friends fell pregnant as we continued to try
    Oh how we tried to be happy for them, but instead we would sit and cry
    We would cry for what we didn’t have and what may never come
    And everytime we saw pregnant women or babies we would suddenly feel very numb

    We decided to get some tests, hoping we would be ok
    But we weren’t prepared for our results and what the nurse would say
    Reduced mobility were the words, I didn’t quite understand
    What exactly this meant and how much we needed a hand

    We endured tests and questions we were so nervous and so scared
    We just couldn’t speak to our loved ones even though we knew they cared
    We still don’t know what will be though we will continue to try
    And the only thing I know for sure is that with each failure, together we’ll cry

    We won’t give up on a baby, it is our wholesome hope and dream
    And until we have our baby the tears will always stream
    If you’re up there little baby, please come see us soon
    For we need you to be with us even more than the night sky needs the moon

    Our infertility cannot be seen
    But we feel it everyday
    The hurt the anguish and despair
    Doesn’t go away

    We are grieving all the time
    For something we never had
    I never thought that was possible
    To lose something that was never there – to feel so sad

    We hate to feel this way
    We hate to cry these tears
    We hate to wonder how long this will take
    Will it be months or years?

    It kills us to see other families
    It’s a reminder of what we aren’t
    We should smile for them and be happy
    But we just can’t

    It hurts us to listen to parents
    Saying a crying baby is the pits
    We should be so lucky to have a crying baby
    We wouldn’t mind a bit

    We would sit and admire our baby
    This amazing thing that we created
    We would embrace this baby with so much love
    And talk about how long for this we had waited

    We wouldn’t mind the dirty nappies
    Or the many sleepless nights
    We would just be grateful to have our bundle
    That we would hold so tight

    We wouldn’t complain about feeding
    Or having our lives turned upside down
    Nothing could get rid of our smiles
    From having our baby around

    We hope the wait is over soon
    And that our baby will be here
    Then the day will come
    That we can finally shed happy tears
