    As I held you in my arms
    for the first time
    I marvelled
    at your perfection
    gazed in awe
    at the beauty
    I had created

    I softly touched
    the strands of slightly curled
    hair that looked like
    it had been washed in sunlight
    on a late afternoon

    I stared into your big brown eyes
    that shone
    like drops of warm chocolate
    ran my fingers all over
    your newborn baby skin
    and held you to my face
    so I could feel the warmth
    of your breath
    smell the baby smell of you

    You fitted perfectly into
    the groove between my breasts
    as I lay your tiny head upon my heart
    so you would find comfort
    from the beat of it
    sleeping peacefully
    in my loving arms

    I knew you would be a son
    I knew what you would look like
    and what name I would give you

    You came to me one night as I slept
    the little angel of my dreams
    visions of you drifting in my mind
    I recognised you instantly
    for you are a precious part of me
    and so connected to me

    When your soul left my body
    before I could give birth to you
    before I could breathe life into you~
    I sobbed brokenheartedly
    for I already knew
    what I had lost

    The young doctor who
    assisted me as I miscarried
    held my hand
    as he told me that this
    had happened
    for a reason
    and it was Gods way
    of telling me
    there was something
    wrong with you

    He had no idea
    of my emptiness
    my loss
    so I forgave him

    God took you
    because you were perfect
    as all angels are
    and I guess
    that day
    at that hour
    God needed
    one more perfect angel
    up in heaven
    more than I needed you
    here on earth
