To My Little Girl

 

By Matthew S. Van Hove

 

I loved you so much,

Even though we never met.

I love you still and I weep over the things we will never get to share.

 

Your first laugh,

Your first smile,

Your first words,

Your first report car,

Your first boyfriend,

Your first child.

 

I will never get to know you, and it breaks my heart.

I will never get to hold you, and it causes me to cry.

I will never get to be your rock, and it makes me fall like a tumbling tower.

I will never get to love you, and it makes me feel empty inside.

 

We loved you so much and you weren't even a month along.

Your brother Zander loved you too, even if he doesn't understand what has gone on.

I will never forget that you were in our lives,

If only briefly.

I will never forget you my little angel.

And I promise that I will still love you until the day I die.

 

You will always be in my thoughts, because our time was so short together.

You will always be in my heart, because i loved you so much.

You will always be in my smile, because of who you could have been.

And,

You will always be in my soul, because you took part of it with you.

 

I love you so much

My little girl.

My wife miscarried our second child recently. We were all sure it was going to be a girl. It hit us both very hard and i needed to express myself somehow.

Nicely done. I applaud how you were able to take something so painful and turn it into somthing so beautiful...your story, the babies story...she will surely live on through your words and your heart. I'd say sorry but like my teacher says, "it's only a word" one that is over used to the point that it loses its meaning...so i'm remorseful for your lost and forgive me for I couldn't find a better word.

So very sorry for the loss of your unborn child.
It's truly heart-breaking. I've lost two in the first trimester;
but it's never easy to deal with. I had high hopes for a daughter
of my own one day. That dream is buried now.

I hope that you will try again, if able! God Bless you and yours.

My heart breaks for you and the loss of your child. This poem captures such raw and delicate emotion. Grief is a very difficult thing to express, but you have, and you have also created a loving and timeless tribute to your little one.

My prayers go out to you and your family.

Please keep writing . . . it's very healing.

I am so very sorry for your loss my friend. These little souls are placed within our hearts from the moment they are conceived and we love them from the very beginning of the life that starts to grow. This little one (Just bet your baby was a girl) was chosen to go back to heaven for right now, but she will come again. Just right now for some reason she was called back to her beginnings. This is so heart touching. Again my condolences to yourself and to your family. Give your wife a few extra hugs. She really needs you right now.

Blessings,
Lesa

They say that loss is the only way you can measure love, and it is very clear how much you loved her. Since I am not a parent I will not say that I know or understand your pain, but I hope that you, you wife and son will be able to make it together. This is truly a fitting tribute for a fathers love...
my condolences..
