Mourning the Death of a Baby




Prayer and Music

to help with

dealing with an empty cradle


~


A Forever Love

has been birthed in my heart.



God,

Please tell my little one -

There were hugs I wanted to give you,

photographs I wanted to take,

and memories I wanted to make.


But know, I will carry you in my heart

all my life.

And when I step into heaven, 

I will be with you throughout eternity.

I will love you forever.

Mourning

My Baby


Prayer of Mourning


God,

I have an ache that nothing but you can heal.

Please ease this terrible anguish that I feel.

Help me to find comfort in you.

Take my tears and soothe my soul.

I will remind myself of your promise that one day I will see my baby again.

Amen

Prayer for Mourning the Death of a Baby


My Thoughts are Bumping into Each Other.


I'm crying out.

I'm crying out for my baby.

Empty arms.

Broken dreams.

Tears come down in streams.


I am here.

You are not.

I grieve and I mourn and I cry a lot.

Lyrics

Today could've been the day
that you blow out your candles
make a wish as you close your eyes


today could've been the day
everybody was laughin'
instead i just sit here and cry
who would you be?
what would you look like
when you looked at me for the very first time?
today could've been the next day of the rest of your life

not a day goes by that i don't think of you
i'm always asking why this crazy world had to lose
such a ray of light we never knew
gone too soon, yeah would you have been president?
or a painter, an author or sing like your mother
one thing is evident
would've given all i had
would've loved ya like no other
who would you be?
what would you look like?
would you have my smile and her eyes?
today could've been the next day of the rest of your life

not a day goes by that i don't think of you
i'm always asking why this crazy world had to lose
such a ray of light we never knew
gone too soon, yeah

not a day goes by, oh
i'm always asking why, oh not a day goes by that i don't think of you
i'm always asking why this crazy world had to lose
such a beautiful life we never knew
gone too soon
you were gone too soon,

not a day goes by
that i don't think of you
