This Sophia's response to "Too Soon"

With All My Love


Dear Mom and Dad

You are two loving parents

Without you, I would not have life

Please try not to be sad



To have you as parents …

Wow! Am I blest!



I loved to hear you say, "Did you feel that kick?"

I loved it when you planted a kiss on Mom’s belly

I loved it when I saw all the wonderful shower gifts

I loved to hear you speak my name with tenderness



I know that you feel so alone

But, I am still with you

In your heart

In your memories



I know your dreams are unfulfilled

Because I was only with you for a little bit, you …

Didn’t get to watch me crawl, run and jump

Didn’t see me graduate

Didn’t see me get married or have children

DID get to feel my love for you



I can see you from up here

Watching you give each other comfort

Wishing I could take your sadness away

Still … I feel your love



When I took my first breath

I was scared

I am thankful to have a ‘big heart’

It let me feel how much I am loved



I have asked God for special favors …

To fill your lives, again, with joy when you speak and think of me

To guide your steps with love and hope

To keep friends and family close

To remind you that I still feel your love

To help you share your sadness and comfort

To let you know I share God’s glory

To let me share my wisdom

To let you know that I am grateful you gave me Life

And, now, I have eternal life


I will always love you, Sophia

This piece brought me back to visit my firstborn son's grave. He is always remembered although here only a short time. I had been so bitter for such a long time, many, many, many years ago. I have been blessed to have a second chance with my second son who is now 7 and he is loved dearly.

Kathy, your poem reached out and gripped my heart with sorrow, yet also with a calm that enveloped me -- your poem is masterfully written, because it is written with all of the love that is in your heart -- may peace and love be always with you my friend -- Jon Michael

A sad and brilliantly composed
piece, beautifully written from the heart.
Thank for sharing this jewel.
Love & peace be with you

Reviewed by Kate Burnside 6/14/2010
This is a beautiful gift to all of us, Kathy, helping us to come to terms with child loss or even with the absence of children we have never had. It moves me to tears as you speak through the voice of the unborn. Your sensitivity and intuition are intense and wonderfully delicate. This is a work that is both inspired by and inspiring deep love and affection, a soothing balm to grief and harrowing pain. Inspired, thank you! xx

Very full of hope and beauty. I have experienced five miscarriages. I am certain parents and children will see each other again, no matter how they were separated.

If only EVERY child in the world had loving parents, perhaps solitude wouldn't have been a dictionary word.

Bittersweet for hearing the words from the mouth of the child in this wonderful but sad write of a parents loss...

Looking through the eyes of an angel in heaven who will always be by your side and love you eternally. Your love shines for the child you lost, Sophia.

Your strength and spirit shine through in this poem, and Sophia was a very lucky girl to have you and your family.

Heart touching and very spiritual.
Much peace, love and light.
