|This is precious, deep and haunting. I read Psalm 139 before I read your poem. That Psalm always confirms my pro-life beliefs. I was forced by my husband to abort two babies. But thank God I have two wonderful sons. Thank you for this anointed poem.|

|Rest gentle, Little One,
not yet made perfect
and still as night
The Lord, the Giver of Life,
holds you in perpetuity
as at the Dawn of Creation;
But not for you
the inevitable progression
from the cradle to the grave
The Days ordained for you
were recorded in
His Book of Life
before one of them came to be;
From Spirit you came
and to Spirit you have returned -
were it not for
a Mother's aching heart
Shall I know you in Heaven, my Darling,
when physical beings
have melted away?
Shall we be made perfect
A Mother grieves the loss
of her unmade child
but her tears are as vapour
compared to the vast oceans
shed by the Father,
lamenting the death
of His untold, unborn children
ripped untimely from the womb
And the murderous heart of Man

|As deep and beautiful as a crystal pool, Kate.
Only women who have known this kind of loss can
fully relate to the profound verses you've penned here.
I am one of them.
We never forget, do we? Even when it happens to us as
a natural miscarriage,and we are not at fault.

|Brilliant heart wrenching write and a very painful read, Poet!!!… I am sorry for your loss, Kate!!!… May you one day be reunited with your child!!!|
|Reviewed by E T Waldron
|Splendid Poetry, Kate!I feel this one deeply! I love the way you used one of my favorite verses from psalms 139:"the days fashioned for me when there were yet none of them"...I agree with you that His tears over the way we have FAILED to deal with abortion will one day be made known in full. I shiver to think of it!Many of us may be guilty of having made mistakes and used what we thought the only way out! However, this wholesale free sex/and kill, that our society has made legal, and condoned, is horrific, and we shall pay the piper one day!|

|to mourn a lost such as that holds a true essence of
possibility....were we make in our minds something beyond
reality...that's what makes it double hard
you coined a deep feeling here!

|When we mourn someone's death, someone who's spent time around us, we celebrate their life, their joys, their accomplishments, and thus find closure. But the death of an unborn child is something I'd probably mourn for the rest of my natural days. How can one find closure for the pain of having lost a love so precious? Never having had the chance to hold it in our arms, or tell it he/she's loved, I don't know. Thank you for sharing this with us.

|Powerful poem, Kate, on behalf of all mothers who have lost children in the womb. And I can relate very well since my spouse almost died when she lost our child in the womb, and her heart ached for a long long time. It truly is a devastating occurence for many many hopeful mothers.|
|Reviewed by Sandie Angel
we never stop being a mother, not even to a child that has never been born. Only mothers know their own true feelings for their child. You have done it beautifully with this write.

I can just imagine how hard this was for you. Many tend to be very judgemental without knowing the facts. We all must answer for our actions here on earth and I believe with circumstance your decision has it's own merit. Ours is a forgiving God so all that remains is your forgiveness of yourself. God Bless You, My Friend. Very well written piece.

|excellent poetic expression, Kate. I often turn to the Psalms for inspiration and comfort.|
