SADNESS LIVES HERE

967f8cb955f6c3bfa0ae918d9d37e475

Sadness has stalked me
Sadness has made me
Sadness has curled me
Sadness has injured me
Sadness has broken me
Yet it still lives here, sadness

Stalked me into sadness
Made me into sadness
Curled me into sadness
Injured me into sadness
Broken me into sadness
Sadness, yet it still lives here

I have nowhere to run or hide
Nowhere to rest my tired heart
How long has it been
That I allowed sadness in
Encroaching in my sanity
I have felt that heaviness
Understood
That sadness
Lives here

WISH YOU COULD HAVE CALLED ME MOTHER

Mother

Mom

Mama

Words so powerful

Heavy with emotion

Glue to every strength

A force that holds hearts

I should have been that

For you my child

I wanted to be everything and more

I wanted to be yours

Your mother

Wish you could have

Called me mother

Eight months

Was all you had

In mommy’s tummy

Every moment

I knew who you were

Every kick

I knew where you were

Every heart beat

I knew what you were

Wish you could have

Called me

Mother

Mom

Mama

 

POETRY WRAPPED IN SOUL

Honest lyrics
His heart
His soul
His being

Track of my tears
Real falsetto
His mind
His spirit
His person

Tracks of my fears
True music
His Laughter
His embrace
His hold

Tracks of my gears
Truthful sound
His body
His self
His humane

Tracks of my years
He is
Poetry wrapped in soul
My frantic heart pursues

CRADLE TO GRAVE

Rocking-cradle-made-from-two-chairs

He was born
Yet his time had not come
Such a young life
Taken so brutally
Only few months
Until he was to take his first breath
Until he was to make his first cry
How life is so frail
An abundance of innocence
Inside a soul that was too raw
His story
From cradle to grave
Was short-lived
He had not even began one chapter
Yet his last chapter was already spelt
Unwritten memories
Were all he left
Unsaid words
Were all he had not
Unheard laughter
Were all that echoed
Promises of eternal love
Promises of forever bliss
Broken
Amidst his cradle to grave story
His life
So short lived
Yet forever changed my own
A forever memory
Etched deep inside my consciousness
I will hold you
When nobody else could
His cradle to grave story
Mine to relive
Until our hearts be mended again

COULD YOU TAKE CARE OF A BROKEN SOUL

tumblr_oaf3evjiag1vv69vco1_1280

If I come to you now
With all this hurt I carry
All these regrets that haunt
All emotions that are harsh
Every pain I have held onto
Could you
Take care
Of a broken soul

If I found you now
With all this pain I carry
All these thoughts that follow
All feelings that are crude
Every fear I have held onto
Could you
Take care
Of a broken soul

If I rang you now
With all this burden I hold
All these nightmares that claw
All rumblings that are rough
Every heartbreak I have held onto
Could you
Take care
Of a broken soul

If I called you now
With all this weight I hold
All these memories that burn
All whispers that are raw
Every grief I have held onto
Could you
Take care
Of a broken soul

Could you
Take care
Of a broken soul

If I come to you now
If I found you now
If I rang you now
If I called you now

With all this hurt I carry
With all this pain I carry
With all this burden I hold
With all this weight I hold

All these regrets that haunt
All these thoughts that follow
All these nightmares that claw
All these memories that burn

All emotions that are harsh
All feelings that are crude
All rumblings that are rough
All whispers that are raw

Every pain I have held onto
Every fear I have held onto
Every heartbreak I have held onto
Every grief I have held onto

Could you
Take care
Of a broken soul

History

On October 25, 1988, American President Ronald Reagan designated the entire month of October 1988 as Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Month.

October 15 Pregnancy and Infant Loss Remembrance Day Campaign began in 2002 as an American movement started by Robyn Bear, Lisa Brown, and Tammy Novak. Together, they petitioned the federal government, as well as the governors of each of the 50 states, in conjunction with the first observation of Pregnancy and Infant Loss Remembrance Day in October 15, 2002, 20 states signed proclamations recognizing the date as such. As a result of the American campaign effort, Concurrent Resolution 222, Supporting the goals and ideals of National Pregnancy and Infant Loss Remembrance Day was passed in the House of Representatives on September 28, 2006.

As of 2016, all 50 American states have yearly proclamations, with Arkansas, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Missouri, New York, Rhode Island, and South Dakota adopting permanent proclamations.

The Founder of Pregnancy and Infant Loss Remembrance Day Canada, also known as PAiL Canada, Terra-Lynn Coggan, joined the American movement in September 2004 and acquired the role as the Canadian Director for October 15 Pregnancy and Infant Loss Remembrance Day and initiated the Canadian Campaign. Following New Brunswick’s official recognition of October 15 Pregnancy and Infant Loss Remembrance Day, Coggan resigned as the Canadian Director for the American Pregnancy and Infant Loss Remembrance Day Campaign and independently launched The Pregnancy Loss and Infant Death Awareness Campaign.

Following New Brunswick’s Declaration in observation of Pregnancy and Infant Loss Remembrance Day others have followed Mrs Coggan’s lead and introduced similar Canadian legislation at the provincial and municipal levels in acknowledgement and recognition of October 15.

CAPTURED GRIEF

unnamed

You never see it
It never speaks
It knows no religion
It confirms no presence
Yet it has such a grip on the soul
Captured grief

It gives no damn
It gives no room to breath
It gives no space to swallow
It gives no warmth
Yet it has such a hold on the heart
Captured grief

It takes no break
It takes no silence
It takes no explanations
It takes no confirmations
Yet it has such a hold on the mind
Captured grief

You can never learn it
You can never throw it
You can never handle it
You van never win it over
Yet it has such pain on the body
Captured grief
