    Im not used to posting in this section, but id better get used to it. I was just wondering if any of you ladies are willing to share with me poems you used at your babies funerals or share and poems you like.

    My baby boy died at 12 days old so I want a poem that will fit with this. I find it hard to find a suitable one, he didnt have a long life but he wasnt stillborn and there doesnt seem to be any poems out there for the 'inbetween' age. He died due to Sudden Infant Death Syndrome :(

    Thank you in advance for any help.

    I am so sorry sweetie :cry:

    Im still looking about for you, but I found this one and thought it was nice....

    Every day I watch you
    Tears flowing down your Cheeks
    Silent Sobbing, Broken Heart
    No words can bring Relief

    Every Day I hold your hand
    And whisper that Im here
    I know that you cant hear me
    But Mum, Im always near

    Every day I blow you kisses
    From the Fluffy Clouds
    I send a kiss for Daddy too
    I know I make him proud

    Every day I send a sign
    To show I love you so
    I try to make you smile for me
    Instead of feeling Low

    Every day I smile at you
    For all that you have done
    To keep my precious memory alive
    Im so glad your my mum

    Ill keep looking....:hugs:

    Hi My thoughts are with you and your family , I know what a awful time you are having. :hugs:A few poems I find comfort in are

    If I could visit heaven
    even for a day
    Maybe for a moment
    my pain would go away
    I'd put my arms around you
    and whisper words so true
    That living life without you
    sure is hell to do
    No matter how I spend my days
    no matter what I do
    No morning dawns or evening falls
    when I don,t think of you.

    This is for someone wonderful
    As loved as one could be
    For you were everything in life
    You meant the world to me
    And sometimes life can be unkind
    When hearts are torn in two
    But nothing ever could compare
    To the pain of losing you
    But all the love you left behind
    Forever will live on
    And so until we meet again
    Rest peacefully
    My little one xx

    Time spent with you
    Was so very precious
    Even if only for a very short time
    I hold a special memory
    Close inside this heart of mine
    To me you were very special
    Much more than words can say
    I still love you now little angel
    And I'll remember you every day.*

    :This one is my favourite as I read it at Callums funeral:

    A Special Angel

    There's a special Angel in Heaven
    thats is a part of me
    It is not where I wanted him
    but where God wanted him to be.
    He was here but just a moment
    like a nighttime shooting star.
    And though he is in Heaven
    he isn't very far.
    He touched the heart of many
    like only an Angel can do.
    We held him every minute
    for the end we all knew.
    So I send this special message
    to the Heaven up above.
    Please take care of my Angel
    and send him all my love.

    I'll Carry You In My Heart
    Why God takes the little ones
    I swear I'll never know
    You had so much life to live
    It just wasn't time to go.
    For comfort, now, I think of you
    With tiny little wings
    Up above, in a beautiful place,
    Listening to angels sing.
    You'll never know the pain I feel
    The hurt you left behind
    Oh, what I wouldn't give to hold you one more time...

    I carried you in my womb,
    Then I carried you in my arms
    And now, until it no longer beats
    I'll carry you in my heart...
    -Jan Todd

    Hope the day goes aswell as it could be, feel free to PM If you want to I have a few quotes and poems that I use in a scrap book in memory of my baby I too found it hard finding poems and songs in time for the funeral. I found alot of stuff after the funeral such as a song called "precious child" which is beautiful, its on youtube .:hug:

    It's time to say goodbye
    and we don't understand why
    today is the day we lay
    our little man to rest
    everyone knows he was the best
    he was our miracle our dream come true
    and we are here to comfort you
    though today we say goodbye
    just remember he never really dies
    for in our hearts his spirit lies
    if he could talk I know he'd say
    mommy daddy please don't cry
    for I am not gone imp flying high
    imp that brand new twinkle in the sky
    I know one day I'll see you again
    and until then
    hold your heads up high
    and just remember imp standing by
    for imp the light of the moon
    and the sunlight in the sky
    so please be strong and it won't be long
    till we're together again
    love your little man

    I am so very sorry for your loss...

    I have written this about my miscarriage,its kind of a song:

    "Heya sugarplum only I can see you
    In your bleeding dress & the violets in your hair
    Nobody can understand
    Nobody's listening to the whisperings
    Softest noises swirling around the branches
    Heya they tell me I don't have a big D
    Always makes me think of daisies
    No flowers of the underworld inside me
    Does that mean I cannot sing to you now

    Lonely Ghost you're not alone
    I let my spark in those woods
    hands on my ears
    they won't make me forget you
    Like you never existed
    Lonely Ghost I love you

    Hey Sweetie pie only I can tell you
    The way I felt your soul
    I will never forget
    The way you made me feel
    I miss you dear as the day goes by
    They keep talking as nothing happened
    I remember the snow she smiled under water
    I remember her portrait as my precious secret
    little bird fly in the silence you know where to meet in dreams

    Heya April my little pumpkin
    you're here with me
    I can see your foot steps in the clouds
    heya pumkin
    one day we'll laugh together behind the fairy door
    In the woods "

    I wish I could help write a poem for your little soul but it's so personal
    you know maybe you dont think of you as a poet, but you could just write how you feel
    rhyme or not
    just writing your love and light to him to wave goodbye

    I am sending you my blessings and empathy

    this is the poem I carry around with me for my own daughter who died suddenly aged 6 weeks:-

    Although we didn't get the chance,
    to take your tiny hand
    And lead you through the
    childhood which together
    we had planned

    And though there really wasn't
    chance to show you all the love
    Now sent to you abundantly
    borne upwards by the dove

    Remember, Darling that
    your tiny heart must know
    That we will always treasure you
    and your memory will grow

    I'm so sorry for your tragic loss xxx :hug:

    and another that was given to me after my daughter passd:-

    God makes little children
    He makes them every day
    And though He loves them dearly
    He gives them all away.

    He gives each to an angel
    And says take baby down
    To such and such a mother
    In such and such a town.

    Or such and such a cottage
    In such and such a place.
    He gives the angel with it
    A big soul full of grace.

    God does so love those children
    It's all that He can do
    To let the Angel take them
    But he loves the mother's too.

    And so he says I'll lend you
    This little one of mine
    The angel folds it's love
    About the special gift divine.

    The angel watches over
    The child both day and night
    So glad to see that lovely soul
    All shining in God's light

    God makes so many children
    And every now and then
    He seems to want one specially
    We don't know why or when

    He whispers to its Angel
    Bring the child back to me
    The angel sees a lovely sight
    That someday we may see

    It sees the souls of mothers
    And fathers in God's light
    Offering him tiny children
    Whose souls are shining bright

    God does so love those children
    Whos souls are never dim
    And how he loves those parents
    Who give them back to him.

    Its so hard trying to pick the right one isnt it, you just want everything to be perfect for them. I didnt have any poems at Eves funeral, I wanted to write one, but wASNT IN THE RIGHT STATE OF MIND, BUT I DO LIKE THIS ONE :hugs: XXXXX

    Daddy, please don't look so sad, and Mama please don't cry~
    "Cause I am 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 He changed his mind.
    You see, I am a special child,
    and I'm needed up above
    I'm the special gift you gave Him,
    the product of your love.
    I'll always be there with you
    and watch the sky at night,
    Find the brightest star that's gleaming,
    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 little breeze,
    from a gentle wind that blows
    That's me, I'll be there,
    planting a kiss on your nose.
    When you see a child playing,
    and your heart feels a little tug,
    That's me, I'll be there,
    giving your heart a hug.
    So Daddy, please don't look so sad,
    Mama don't you cry.
    I'm in the arms of Jesus
    and He sings us lullabies.

    Special Angel In Heaven

    There is a special Angel in Heaven that is a part of us.
    It is not where we wanted him ,but where God wanted him to be.

    he was here but just a moment, like a night time shooting star.
    And though he is in Heaven, he isn't very far.

    he touched the heart of many, like only an Angel can do.
    I would've held him every moment- if the end I only knew.

    So I send this special message, to the Heavens up above.
    Please take care of my Angel, and send him all my love.


    My Mom is a Survivor

    My Mom is a survivor, or so I've heard it said.
    But I can hear her crying at night when all others are in bed.

    I watch her lay awake at night and go to hold her hand.
    She doesn't know I'm with her to help her understand.

    But like the sands on the beach that never wash away . . .
    I watch over my surviving mom, who thinks of me each day.

    She wears a smile for others . . .a smile of disguise!
    But through Heaven's door I see tears flowing from her eyes.

    My mom tries to cope with death to keep my memory alive.
    But anyone who knows her knows it is her way to survive.

    As I watch over my surviving mom through Heaven's open door . . .
    I try to tell her that angels protect me forevermore.

    I know that doesn't help her . . .or ease the burden she bears.
    So if you get a chance, go visit her . . .and show her that you care.

    For no matter what she says . . .no matter what she feels.
    My surviving mom has a broken heart that time won't ever heal


    If I had a rose for everytime I thought of you,
    I'd walk through a garden forever!


    Only The Best

    A heart of gold stopped beating,
    two shining eyes at rest,
    God broke our hearts to prove,
    He only takes the BEST.

    God knows you had to leave us,
    but you did not go alone,
    for part of us went with you,
    the day He took you home.

    To some you are forgotten,
    to others just part of the past,
    but to us who loved and lost you,
    the memory will always last.

    Im so sorry for your loss :hugs:, this is the poem we had at laurens funeral

    Sorry I didn't get to stay.
    To laugh and run and play.
    To be there by your side.
    I'm sorry that I had to die.

    God sent me down to be with you,
    to make your loving heart anew.
    To help you look up and see
    Both God and little me.

    Mommy, I wish I could stay.
    Just like I heard you pray.
    But, all the angels did cry
    when they told little me goodbye.

    God didn't take me cause He's mad.
    He didn't send me to make you sad.
    But to give us both a chance to be
    a love so precious .. don't you see?

    Up here no trouble do I see
    and the pretty angels sing to me.
    The streets of gold is where I play
    you'll come here too, mommy, someday.

    Until the day you join me here,
    I'll love you mommy, dear.
    Each breeze you feel and see,
    brings love and a kiss from me.

    im sorry for your loss...

    i thought id write something for you myself, my thoughts are with you...

    no one can describe the love i feel for you,
    your tiny hands, your perfect face, the smile i never knew.
    perfection in a bundle, thats what youll always be
    youl always be my baby, but now your flying free.

    go play with the stars, and laugh out loud,
    let your smile shine, ill be so proud.
    my perfect little blessing for all to hear and see
    one day wel be together, wel play, just you and me.

    the time we spent with one another is engraved within my heart
    ill always ask the question...why so soon did we have to part?
    the pain inside that drives me, to speak your name each day.
    will never ever leave me, even though thats hard to say

    but i know deep down our love will grow
    and get stronger day by day.
    our hearts and souls will intertwine
    and when i see the brightest star in the sky, ill know its mine.

    mommys always here, ill never leave,
    youll never be alone.
    it may take time for us to meet again
    youll still be perfect, just fully grown.

    I am so sorry for your loss and the pain you must be in is unimaginable.

    Just another poem for you sweetie :hugs:

    I thought of you

    I thought of you with love today
    But that is nothing new
    I thought about you yesterday
    And the day before that too

    I think of you in silence
    I often say your name
    But all I have is memories
    And your picture in a frame

    Your memory is my keepsake
    With which i'll never part
    God has you in his keeping
    I have you in my heart

    I shed tears for what might have been
    A million times i've cried
    If love alone could've saved you
    You never would've died

    In life I loved you dearly
    In death I love you still
    In my heart you hold a place
    No-one could ever fill

    It broke my heart to lose you
    But you didn't go alone
    For part of me went with you
    The night God took you home.

    A 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 longed for
    Was here and swiftly 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,
    With every beat within our hearts
    We say that we love you.

    If tears could build a stairway
    And memories were a lane
    We would walk right
    up to Heaven
    And bring you back again.....
    No farewell words were spoken
    No time to say goodbye
    You were gone
    before we knew it
    And only God knows why......
    Our hearts still ache in sadness
    And secret tears still flow
    What it meant to lose you
    No one will ever know.....
    Since you'll never be forgotten
    I pledge to you today-
    A hollowed place within my heart
    is where you'll always stay...
