For the broken-hearted mother whose arms long for a child, yet have none to hold. I remember your pain. I remember the sorrow. You are not alone. You are not forgotten. Your heart is in His hands.
It is ok to cry.
It is ok to grieve.
Don’t give up hope.
You are precious.
You are dear to your Maker and those around you.
You are loved.
On mother’s day, if you know someone who has lost a child and grieves, let them know they are loved. There is a despair on Mother’s Day that is so deep and painful. Love them. Cherish them. Show them you care.
A Mother in my Heart
by Tara Young
We waited and hoped and prayed it was so. My spouse and I to the doctor did go.
The baby not here yet I longed to hold. To watch while that child grew and we grew old.
The inky dark blackness has settled in. What did I do was it some secret sin?
My child, my children, they are all gone. My womb now is empty I can’t sing any song.
No baby to hold, my heart is breaking. My body, the pain, my soul is shaking.
Why oh why did He do this to us? I feel like saying bad words just to cuss!
The empty cold stare reflects nothingness. His reflection reflects his helplessness.
Why go to celebrate Mother’s day as they hand out roses or pins my emotions they fray.
My heart, it aches, it burns with despair. I just want this life to be fair.
Empty arms, broken-hearted as my children have since departed.
Remember me as you see me at church, I am here waiting for peace as I search.
For the reasons of life I don’t understand. God I’m stretched out like a rubber band.
I am a broken piece of shattered art. I will always be a mother in my heart.
Since this grief, God has blessed me 3 beautiful adopted daughters and I am so glad. There is still a small part of my heart which loves the 3 I lost. They are with the Lord and I find solace in that. Safe in the arms of Jesus who loves them perfectly.
Prayers for you if you are hurting. Cry out to the Lord. He will hear you friend. If you need to leave a message, I will do my best to answer you. 🙂 Virtual hugs to your grieving heart.
