Mary Rose

A place for those bereaved to receive and offer support

Mary Rose

In honor of Mary Rose's birthday, I am posting a poem I wrote for her.
My husband and others have written poems about my daughter. SO I thought I would share what I wrote.

How I have dreamt of you
Imagining the softness of your skin
The blushing of your cheeks
How I have hungered for your laughter
Pictured your perfect chubby hands
Reaching for me, revelling in the knowledge
You are loved by me
How I long for the warmth of your body
FIlling the empty ache in the void of the
"C" that is my furled body & soul
Though I bear others, love others, cherish others
My heart will always have a hole
which only you can fill and make complete
Know that a piece of me
Will always be missing
My soul will always be searching
My womb will always be aching
For my dearest Mary Rose

Thank you all so much for your kind thoughts. Somehow we made it through one of the worst days of my life. I think the hardest time I had was when we went to the flower shop to buy a bouquet. I was thinking I should be buying a cake or presents for my baby girl, not flowers for her grave. But we had a quiet day of rememberence. Thank you once again for your support.
