A life ended before it began

I am finding this so very difficult to write about. I have only told close family because I can’t bring myself to actually say it but I so desperately want to remember, I want my baby to be known, I want every emotion that comes with it to be raw and never forgotten; Saturday, 31st May 2014 was the day a life ended before it began. Saturday, 31st May 2014 was the day I lost a baby, my son or daughter, Eloise’s brother or sister. 

My heart is broken. 

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 love you.

    Oh hunny! I hope you are okay! There is nothing in this world that is worse than losing a child and despite it never actually beginning as such he/she can still be remembered and loved and missed, There are so many fantastic charities out there that you can talk to who will help you through this grief as it must be so hard to stay strong with little Eloise.
