Are You Still a Mother When Your Child is Gone?
Daddy's Grief
Nobody Knows it but us

Your Baby is in Heaven Without You


Are You Still a Mother When Your Child is Gone ?

I thought of you and closed my eyes
And Prayed to God today.
I asked what makes a Mother
And I know I heard him say.

A Mother has a baby
This we know is true.
But God can you be a Mother
When your baby's not with you?

Yes, you can He replied
With confidence in His voice
I give many women babies
When they leave is not their choice.

Some I send for a lifetime
And others for a day.
And some I send to feel your womb
But there's no need to stay.

"I just dont understand this, God I want my baby here..."

He took a breath and cleared His throat
And then I saw a tear.
I wish I could show you
What your child is doing today.
If you could see your child smile
With other children and say

"We go to earth and learn our lessons
Of love and life and fear.
My Mommy loved me oh so much
I got to come straight here.
I feel so lucky to have a Mom
Who had so much love for me
I learned my lesson very quickly
My Mommy set me free.
I miss my Mommy oh so much
But I visit her each day.
When she goes to sleep
On her pillow's where I lay.
I stroke her hair and kiss her cheek
And whisper in her ear
" Mommy dont be sad today I'm your baby and I'm Here".

So you see my dear sweet one your children are OK
Your babies are here in MY home And this where they'll stay.

They'll wait for you with me
Until your lesson is through
And on the day that you come home
They'll be at the gates for you.

So now you see what makes a Mother
It's the feeling in your heart.
It's the love you had so much of
Right from the very start

Daddy's Grief

It must be very difficult
To be a man in grief,
Since "men don't cry"
and "men are strong"
No tears can bring relief.

It must be very difficult
To stand up to the test
And field the calls and visitors
So she can get some rest.

They always ask if she's all right
And what she's going through.
But seldom take his hand and ask,
" My friend, but how are you?"

He hears her crying in the night
And thinks his heart will break.
He dries her tears and comforts her,
But "stays strong" for her sake.

It must be very difficult
To start each day anew
And try to be so very brave –
He lost his baby too.

Nobody Knows it but Us

We pretend we understand why you went away
But these four walls close in more everyday
We're dying inside
And nobody knows it but us

In honor of you we won't put on a show
The pain is real and everyone knows
We're dying inside
And nobody knows it but us

Why didn't we know the things we needed to know
How could we let our angel get away
Now our world is a-tumblin' down
We can see it so clearly but you're no where around

The nights are so lonely and the days are so sad
We just keep thinking about the moments we had
We're missing you
And nobody knows it but us

How blue will we get we ask our hearts
Just like a jigsaw puzzle we've been torn all apart
A million words couldn't say just how we feel
A million years from now you know, we'll be lovin' you still

The nights are so lonely and the days are so sad
We just keep thinking about the moments we had
We're missing you
And nobody knows it but us

The nights are lonely
The days are so sad
We just keep thinking
About the love that we had
And everyone feels it with us...

You will be in our hearts and minds forever, Robbie
We love you, Mommy and Daddy


Whisper of an Angel

The whisper of an angel
Can open Heaven's gate,
A glimpse of faith and courage
A love strong enough to wait,

Whisper you are safe
Whisper softly, angel love,
My heart is aching so
Needing comfort from above,

Tell me you are with me
Whisper gently in my ear,
" You will always be my mummy"
In the quiet I will hear,

My heart still aches to hold you
I close my eyes and see,
Your beautiful face now
And who you were to be,

Through dreams I once held close
In the distance now, so far
Still you're more than just my child
You're the twinkle in the stars,

So I'll hear your angel whispers
" You never need to let me go,
Hold me, mummy, close within"
Though the pain and sorrow flow,

One day we shall reunite Angel,
whisper words of grace,
And I promise I will hold you
In another time and place


Your Baby is in Heaven Without You

I'll lend you, for a little while
A child of mine, He said,
For you to love while he lives
And mourn for when he's dead.

It may be six or seven years
Or twenty-two or -three,
But will you, till I call him back,
Take care of him for Me?

He'll bring his charms to gladden you
And should his stay be brief
You'll have his loving memories
As solace for your grief.

I cannot promise he will stay
Since all from Heaven return.
But there are lessons taught down there
I want this child to learn.

I've looked the whole world over
In my search for teachers true,
And from the threads that crowd life's lanes,
I have selected you.

Now will you give him all your love
Nor think your labor vain,
Nor hate Me when I come
To call him back again?
