In Heaven

In Heaven

i never got the chance
to see you smile
but i got you a name
i never got to know
how you would become
but i know you’d be great
i never got to hear you speak
but i know you’d be perfect
in everything you’d wanna be.

i never got to embrace you hello
for i had to let you go
before you even know
the world outside
is waiting for you
but He has other plans
so i just hope one day
i get to see you smile
i get to call you
by the name i chose
i get to hear you speak
and give you
the most endearing
embrace.

one day soon
in heaven we will be.

if you are a regular to my blog you would know that apart from abuse and violence i am also creating awareness on mothers/women experiencing loss of a child during pregnancy or in most common term;  miscarriage. i’ve written poems about miscarriage and how women should have the much needed support during this time. we all know that miscarriage is something we don’t usually talk about and at the same time we also know that these mothers/women are hurting and grieving inside.

recently, i came across articles and stories of women experiencing ectopic pregnancies.

according to  https://www.mayoclinic.org  an ectopic pregnancy occurs when a fertilized egg implants and grows outside the main cavity of the uterus. an ectopic pregnancy most often occurs in a fallopian tube, which carries eggs from the ovaries to the uterus. this type of ectopic pregnancy is called a tubal pregnancy.

sadly though a baby almost never survives an ectopic pregnancy. there have been extremely rare and unusual cases in which a baby has survived, but the odds are 1 to 3 million. these few cases typically happen outside the fallopian tubes in the abdominal cavity where blood supply is rich(https://lifelinepregnancyhelp.org ). these cases unknown to us many is also very heartbreaking for mothers, knowing that there is a growing child is something to celebrate and yet, at some point you have to decide whether or not to take the risk and go on with the pregnancy and let nature takes its course or do what’s suppose to be medically appropriate for both the mother and the child.

the dilemma now for the mother is : will she wait until it dissolves naturally? what if it doesn’t will she take on the suggestion of the medical experts to take on what is medically appropriate yet heartbreaking?

    I think miscarriage support is more available and recognized in the US than is other places. My church has a support group for women and counseling for couples after the loss of a pregnancy. It isn’t just the women who need support – the fathers are grieving too…

      Thank you so much Val. From where i am support groups (of any kind) is not so availabe and recognized …we also have very few professionals who deal with mental and emotional health. And its very expensive to go through therapy here.

    The incidents of a miscarriage are 1 out of 4 pregnancies so most mothers are aware of this tragedy firsthand. A very moving poem Mich. Thanks for joining in.
    I haven’t read any posts from you for a few days. I hope you’re well? Hugs.

    I have encountered one brave woman who had such a story. Her third child.
    I had seen her when she was carrying, but then not for quite a while, when I learned the child lived in her only in her heart. She had her husband and two other children to care for that were living. Her strength and commpassion were amazing. I say that because she did not make me feel bad when I asked about the child who lived in her heart.
