I think the most horrible thing in this whole world is to loose a child, whether it be from miscarraige, sids, car accidents....doen't matter I have not experienced it but the very thought leaves me in tears and makes me keep a closer eye on the little ones

 There’s a red plastic ball

Lies against one pink wall

Where it rolled to a long time ago


It was just ninety nine cents

Made very few little dents

Soft like a pillow you know


There’s a baby doll pram

Some books stained with jam

A few alphabet blocks on the floor


There’s some little pink dresses

Some wrapped golden tresses

In an album now looked at no more


There’s a line on the door frame

With heights marked by a name

Stops suddenly and ends at three feet


There’s an atmosphere of gloom

The air is permeated with doom

In this room that should be so sweet


There’s a mangled red and white trike

One the little girl used to like

In a corner of the yard it was thrown


There’s no reason or rhyme

God decided her time

Her laughter in this house has now flown

Is the worse thing that can happe. Makes one unconsolable.
Specailly when I saw all those toddlers coats in the cloak room, after being gunned down..

One can't say a anything..I can only relate insomuch as my ex not letting me see my son for the past 5 years.

One just stares at old photos, clothes toys, and cries..

My heart aches when I read of such as this. You did a beautiful poem for the topic. I lost my son in a car accident The other two in the car, his friends lived, no injuries, he was not driving but next to the driver when he hit a tree in a storm. One never truly recovers from it.

Can only imagine how it would feel to lose a child that you had once held in your arms. It's hard enough with miscarriages. And yes, I believe that they do become God's little Angels. Very good poem, although sad. Karen

Oh Dear Felix...this one hit me straight in the face!!

I lost my little girl Michêle in May 1985...she fell of a "Jungle Gym" at school....she was only six years old!!

Did not know what happened until the sunday after she died...a friend from school came to my house and told me what happened at school!!

The child responsable was charged with murder at first....but nothing came of it because a child is child acording to the law....even though this little "mungrill" knew exactly what he did to her when he pulled her legs out under her!!

God forgive me..but I will never forget him...and those without compassion for what I feel....her father included...that is a different story!!

Love Tinka :(
