Losing a child is one of the most terrible things a mother has to go through. It will be very painful and sorrowful when losing an unborn child. It’s a terrible, cruel truth that mothers, as well as fathers, have to suffer for a long time. Miscarriage, no matter what stage of pregnancy, can bring heartbreaking damages.
The love of the father and mother for their children is sacred and deep. But death has taken away the hope, the longing that was lit from the first days of pregnancy. The loss was too big that it caused the mother to endure a mental breakdown and lost hope and faith in life. Losing a child to a miscarriage is always a heartbreaking experience not only for the parents but also for the siblings and entire family of the child whose life ended before birth.
Miscarriage poems are the best way to commemorate an unborn baby. Poetry is seen as encouragement and comfort to help mothers and fathers overcome their pain. Share these with someone who has gone through the pain of a miscarriage and send your kind message to comfort them.
1, Farewell, Our Little Angel © Jeanette Cortum
It’s hard for me to find the right words to say.
I hope our love for you will find its way.
I wrote you this poem to show we care,
For this pain, this hurt I cannot bear.
I’m sorry we didn’t have the chance to meet.
I never had the chance to touch your fingertip.
Nor hold your tiny body and kiss your tiny feet.
Nor sing a lullaby and rock you in the chair as I sit.
I have an image of you in my mind,
a gorgeous smile, and beautiful eyes.
A boy or a girl we will never know,
The love you deserve, hope we’ll be able to show.
You’ll always be daddy’s special one and mummy’s too,
and we want you to know we’ll always love you.
It’s time to say farewell, our little Angel, and one day, someday,
We’ll be able to hold you tight and give you that proper kiss goodnight.
2, My Alexander © Jeanette Cortum
I mourn for the things I have missed..
Your tiny feet I dream I could’ve kissed.
I wish that I could picture your beautiful face,
And give you the warmest loving embrace.
I want you on my chest as I brush your soft hair,
How I wish I can give you proper care.
My role as your mom was never done,
I am sure you have needed one.
My angel, for long we have not given you a name.
Unable to show you love, was such a shame.
In my bed, I cry for you every single night,
And I don’t know how to make things right.
Although it is too late, this I know—
All the pain and regrets, I have to let go..
Please forgive me for all the misgivings.
I promise to give you all the love you are longing.
3, For My Little One © Mary Cathleen
I never saw your twinkling eyes
Or touched your precious feet.
I never shared a tiny yawn
Or rocked you fast asleep.
I never kissed your tiny hands
Or saw your little smile.
I never held you in my arms,
But I held you for a while.
Although I never saw your face
Or heard your precious laughter,
You’re still my child whom I love
And will forever after.
4, A Letter To My Unborn Child © Kaitlyn
So quickly you came into our lives,
So quickly torn away.
Never got the chance to meet you.
There’s so much I want to say.
Where there once was joy and happiness,
Now there’s sadness, guilt, and pain.
All these thoughts running through my head,
It’s enough to drive me insane.
Though you lived only eight short weeks,
You were loved so very much.
I wish that I could hold you.
I long to feel your touch.
On that fateful night,
My world was ripped from under my feet.
I pray that in another life
We get the chance to meet.
5, To my Angel © Princess Faustino
Today I miss you
a little more than yesterday
You are my angel
God has sent me as miracle
Few weeks back
I was flabbergasted
Saw those two lines
Immediately become red
I shrieked, was shocked
Felt nervous and excited
Most of all the joy
I never experienced
Days passed, got sched
Went to my Ob gyne
At 6 weeks I saw you
In a tiny blob shape gummy
I stared at the monitor
Showed your exquisite heartbeat
Radiating with euphoria
‘Twas vivid I forgot to take a vid
That very moment I was giddy
I already loved you deeply
Thanks to you my sweetie
I turned into a mommy
I told your daddy
Who’s waiting outside
I saw his excitement
He held me so sooo tight
So our journey continued
A bed rest was needed
Drink your milk, eat healthy
Don’t skip meds, OB said
Oh you know my little gummy
How I love my morning coffee
Knowing you’re growing in my tummy
I cut the caffeine instantly
I was so uncertain
I craved different foods
Sometimes I cry without reason
Sometimes I’m not in the mood
Family & closed friends got the news
Coz we couldn’t help ourselves
They were happy, excited
Love and care, you were showered
We’re guessing your gender
Daddy’s drones were at risk
We’re thinking of your name
Thought twas easy as a blink
We were dreaming, we’re planning
We prayed for a healthy baby
Mom and Dad focused on you sweetie
Monitored do’s and don’ts for our safety
Then bleeding and cramping
At 10 weeks started
Felt sick, I had a bad feeling
My heart was shattered
Too early, I prayed so hard
God knows I wanted to keep you
The day I learned you’re gone
Worst day ever, I feel blue
Right at this moment
It’s so hard to recuperate
But I’m holding to HIS promise
HIS plans and my FAITH
All I know is we have
An angel up there
You are too precious
You are so loved my dear.
Today I miss you
a little more than yesterday.
6, Broken © Bryt Agbonifo
My heart is heavy
My mind is naive.
I tried to be strong but this,
This is the real me; an overripe fried plantain forming to be hard and ready.
Indeed, time and happenings are friends and foes of men and now I’m broken,
Yes! I’m broken.
Like a glass that falls on the tiles,
I am broken,
Like a woman who underwent a miscarriage
I am broken,
Like that little girl who lost her virginity to a rapist,
I’m broken, I’m broken.
I try, I try not to remember,
But memories of you and me are already part of my daily routine,
I try not to uncover the fact that I love you, but the truth is my heart runs a marathon at the thought of your name.
I try to hold back my scarce tears and hide my fears
But, the more I try, the more it breaks me.
My heart is heavy, my eyes are soaked,
You stole my heart, my trust and my care,
Now I’m as soft as the tissue and as light as the air I feel on my hairy legs,
Alaba, I can’t bear this anymore, I can’t help but to remember all the promises we made, the time we spent, the jokes we cracked, the poems we wrote and the arguments we had, I’m wounded.
Yes! Yes!, those words of yours pierced through me, they demolished my balance and destroyed my thinking ability,
All I feel now is pain and agony,
I’m dying, tears rolling down my cheeks and my heart sinks
I’m just here with a heavy heart and a lonely soul thinking this is a dream.
Please if it is, wake me for it’s no longer funny,
7, The Pains Of A Woman © Meka Oneofakind Kelsaw
All women know is Pain
Pain of Pregnancy
Pain of Birth
Pain of a Miscarriage
Pain of a Broken Heart
Pain when its that time of the month
This is only the start
Pain of having to care 4 a child on your own
When the father is free to roam
Pain of being disrespected by a child u tried your best to raise on ur own
Pain of how will u make ends meets
Pains of knowing you have to stay on ur feet, cause u are the only way ur kids will eat & have clothes, shoes on their feet
You will think they will have a lil sympathy
The pains of a women is something deep
Pains of being molested and rape
Pain of giving somebody years of your life only for them to step out on u
Pains of trusting again
You can never understand a women if you dont understand her pains
Pains of getting beat by a man she thought was her everything
Pain of putting make up on trying to look pretty
Pains of having the perfect body
No this is not ur normal pain this pain is different
The pain of a woman something we may only understand
Strong we still stand
No matter how many things come our way thats meant to tear us down
When u look at a woman. Admiration is all you should see.
I just want yall to think &
Try not to be part of a women’s pain.
We have enough
8, Long To See Your Sweet Face © Kim Perry
Two pink lines, we knew it was true,
Sooner than later we would meet you.
I yelled for your Daddy and smiled just so.
He stood there in shock and a glorious glow.
We made lots of phone calls and shared our great news.
I had lots of symptoms and even some clues.
Then one day as I was taking out the trash,
Something came over me and I knew in a flash
Everything was wrong and I prayed it wasn’t so,
So I called up your Daddy and said we must go
To the hospital to check on your stats.
Waiting so patiently for the results to come back,
We were told the bleeding was normal, you were just fine.
Worrying uncontrollably because you were mine,
Waiting for the doctor seemed to take forever.
I guess she just thought she was being so clever.
Up on the screen we could see your silhouette.
The doctor made a grave face, and I said no, not yet.
“There is no heartbeat,” are the words we dreaded most.
The tears started to fall and I felt like a ghost.
I wanted to run, and I wanted to hide.
I wanted you there standing at my side.
I long now to hold you and hear your soft cries,
Play with your belly and hear your faint sighs.
Never will I have the chance to kiss your sweet lips,
Wrap your sweet legs around my soft hips.
I know you are in Heaven and safe you will always be,
But oh, I long to touch the baby I will never see.
9, Miscarried © William Thomas Fearby
I carried you inside me
I felt you push and kick
For eight long months
You couldn’t come to quick
I did everything I could to protect you
You were my greatest joy
The doctor had already told me
I was expecting a little boy
You were everything I ever wanted
To make my life complete
I couldn’t wait to hear
The patter of your tiny feet
But that was never to happen
Because you were cruelly taken away
That was when my world stopped forever
My heart died that very day
What did I do that was so wrong?
I tried the best I could
Obviously I was not doing
Everything that I should
I tried so very hard to protect you
But I know I let you down
I can’t face life now knowing
That you won’t be around
I held you in my arms
Until the nurse took you away
You were such a beautiful little boy
I don’t want to live another day
Why did they take you away from me?
I will never understand
I didn’t want to let you go
So I held tightly onto your little hand
I love you so much my little boy
And hold a special place in my heart
Every day I miss you more and more
I can’t stand us being apart
I feel my life is over
And I don’t know what to do
Nobody really understands
What I am going through
I feel the emptiness deep inside
Where once I felt you
Can somebody please help me?
What am I supposed to do?
Every time I close my eyes
All that I can see is you
I keep asking myself
Is there more that I could do
My friends say time is a great healer
But I feel dead inside
The day they took you from me
Is the day my whole world died?
If there was a God surely
He wouldn’t be so cruel
All my life I believed in you
Why was I such a fool?
10, Teenage Miscarriage © Danielle
They say that time’s a great healer,
But I don’t think that’s true.
My heart’s been aching so, so much
Since the day that I lost you.
I had to say goodbye
Before I could say hello.
I wish I could have told you
How much I loved you so.
You mean more to me than anything,
Even though we never met.
Mummy loves her precious babies,
And I promise that I won’t forget.
You’re my three shining stars,
And in my heart is where you’ll stay,
But don’t be too sad, little ones
Because Mummy knows we’ll meet someday.

I go down to the rough-hewn
field where the tiller’s blade snagged
at the stubborn ground. I go down in the fresh-
turned soil, wet to my knees, and plant by feel
frail seedlings – Beefsteak and Better Boys.
I trowel a hole for each loose bundle
of roots, slosh water from my pail, and refill
the gap, my hands gathering at the base of each
fluid stem. I go down where my husband’s long
shadow startles the grass. It is weeks
before we will again come carefully
unsewn, take to each other, hungry and thick-
tongued. I survey my row: a wicked stitch,
a wound to the ground I’ve inflicted
and mended, heedless, uneven, like a doped
line I might have walked in scant hospital
gown. This evening each deeply-toothed
leaf is mine. Even the spindly runts take
hold. I go down on all fours in search
of what I lost, something misplaced, like an heir-
loom scrap of antique lace, intricately clotted.
What will I say when she turns up at four,
or six, or ten, tangled and grass-stained, wet
to the knees? You’re late. Go wash. Go hunt
the brush and bring me your fine head.
12, Miscarriage © Eric Nelsen
Down of no comfort,
pillows for loss,
white feathers floated
over the hospital road.
One caught the windshield
and held a moment, small
flag of hope, then vanished
in the clearer logic of air.
On the long last grade
we overtook the flatbed
stacked with shivering geese.
In the garden
the corn silk browned.
The ears spiraled
plump from the stalks.
Beneath the husks
a green worm worked
its way down,
In its wake the offal
of its life hung.
I drew stems of daisies
and zinnias from buckets
in the florist’s shop,
pinched one in my numbed hand.
The woman smiled, said
they’d cheer a room and not
to worry, the hurt
stem would mend.
The evening storm, first
only sensed, hit so hard
it was all there was
to see, to hear.
Gradually it slowed, disappeared.
Silhouettes of trees emerged.
on the housetops.
We ate what we salvaged
of the corn, and it was sweet.
Deep in the night the air
flinched like a fitful sleeper,
and the rain stored in the trees

Some species can crack pavement with their shoots
to get their share of sun some species lay
a purple froth of eggs and leave it there
to sprinkle tidepools with tadpole confetti
some species though you stomp them in the carpet
have already stashed away the families
that will inherit every floor at midnight
But others don’t go forth and multiply
as boldly male and female peeling the bamboo
their keepers watching in despair or those
endangered species numbered individually
and mapped from perch to oblivious perch
For weeks the world it seemed was plagued
with babies forests dwindling into cradles
rows of women hissing for an obstetrician
babies no one could feed babies received
by accident like misdirected mail
from God so many babies people hired
women to hold them babies babies everywhere
but not a one to name When we got home
the local news showed us a mother with
quintuplets she was suckling them in shifts
a mountain of sheets universally admired
a goddess of fertility her smile
could persuade the skies to rain Her litter
slept ointment-eyed in pink wool caps while Dad
ran his hand through his hair thinking maybe
of money as he stood surveying his
crowded living room his wealth of heartbeats
Pizza and pop that night and there unasked inside
the bottlecap was Sorry—Try Again
you set it down and did not speak of it
the moon flanked by her brood of stars that night
a chaste distracted kiss goodnight that night
your body quiet having spilled its secret
your palms flat on your belly holding holding
Forgive me if I had no words that night
but I was wondering in the silence still
begetting silence whether to console you
if I consoled you it would make the loss
your loss and so we laid beside ourselves
a while because I had no words until
our bodies folded shut our bodies closed
around hope like a book preserving petals
a book we did not open till the morning when
we found hope dry and brittle but intact
14, I Am Here © Stacey Jo Rumberger
Please don’t cry, I am here.
Just look around; I am very near.
I am the prettiest butterfly
exploring the day.
I am the shiniest star
showing you my wings glisten afar.
I am the wind moving your hair
to kiss your cheek,
so please wipe your tears away.
I am here, playing hide ‘n seek.
15, For Our Angel © Lisa
We don’t want to cry anymore,
But the pain won’t go away.
Our hearts are torn in two
Because our baby couldn’t stay.
We don’t want to cry anymore.
God had other plans for you.
Mommy and Daddy will get through this someday,
But right now our world is blue.
We don’t want to cry anymore.
We never thought we’d be torn apart.
Even though we can’t hold you in our arms,
We will always hold you in our hearts.
We don’t want to cry anymore.
Our Angel, there was nothing we could do.
Mommy and Daddy will miss you so much,
And never forget, we will always love you.
16, A Dedication To Your Unborn Child © R.E.S
You went into the office
expecting the great news,
that your baby was secure,
growing in your womb.
You didn’t hear the heartbeat
and you didn’t feel it move.
You ended up getting
the worst unexpected news.
Your child is in heaven,
an angel in the sky,
filled with joy and laughter
growing as time goes by.
Your life will go on.
The tears will come and go.
only time now
will heal your broken soul.
17, The Missing Piece © Kylie Ann
Your first Christmas came without you.
You’re the unopened secret screams.
We carry you in our broken hearts all day
And unwrap you in our dreams.
I see you in every bulging belly,
In every mother’s thoughtless kiss.
I see you in empty baby shoes.
I see you in that, I see you in this.
You’re in every “why can’t that be me?”
And the tears hidden in my car.
You’re the missing piece of every minute
…I wonder where you are.
You were here before you weren’t.
There was a future with you in it.
Now you’re the broken parts of us
And the missing piece of every minute.
