THE STRONG WILLED CHILD

large (3)

I know you were strong
You held on
Inside a space that was your home
You fought hard
To make it through
Everyday of your life inside me
Month after month you grew
Knowing your time on earth
Would start soon
You kicked
To show you were happy
You kicked
To show you were hungry
You kicked
To show you didnt like that food
You kicked
To play in your space
You kicked
When you wanted attention
You kicked
When I placed a hand on your home
You kicked
Just because
A strong willed child you were
You made me stronger than I thought
Your will to be strong
Is making me strong
Now that you are no longer here

I STILL REMEMBER

poetry

I still remember
Pushing you out
Knowing
You were already gone
I still remember
Feeling pain of labour
Knowing
You would not come
I still remember
Looking over to you
Knowing
You will not be
I still remember
My heart dying
Knowing
You had left me
I still remember
My mind shutting down
Knowing
It was the end for you
I still remember
Crying so much
Knowing
Our paths together was over
I still remember
Every single moment
You were shortly here
Knowing Heaven needed you
I still remember
Asking
Why
Knowing
I will get no answers
I still remember you baby
Every moment, every second
You existed with me
Though born without breath
You were alive in me
You still are alive in me
Because I will still remember you
