Mummy, I'm a special angel
up here in heaven above
God needed me up here, mummy
but I can still feel your love

I know you miss me lots
And mummy, I miss you too
But I'm up here in heaven
Watching over you!

God gave me wings so I can fly and I wear a pretty dress
Just because you're there, and I'm I'm up here, that doesn't mean you love me less

I know that you want me there Mummy
So you can care for me
but mummy, I know that from up here,
I'm a special angel you see!

When God made mums,
he knew that you with your love and tender ways,
could be the best a mum could be,
Please remember that always.

I am an angel in the sky and I'm always watching you,
Please don't be sad and blue mummy
because I will always love you

Look at the sky tonight mummy,
you'll see a shining star.
That's me mummy, shining so bright,
You know, i'm really not that far!

When we meet again, my dear mummy,
we'll laugh and be so gay,
but mummy, promise me, oh please do,
be happy til that day.

I'm going to go and have some fun and play with all my might,
but look at the star tonight, mummy,
it'll be the brightest one tonight.

Thats for my 1 angel. I tried to do it from his prospective because sometimes I wonder if he really does know I love him, although we never met...and then I think, get over yourself silly, he knows your his mummy and loves u lots but god only takes very special people to be his angels and so took my baby.

Thanks Anna. I've had a couple of really weepy days and I need to let myself feel like this. I've been plodding on over the last few months but Bo's needless death keeps re-surfacing. I think it's worse because I haven't had any low-level sadness. Just OK and then.....Boom! straight back to feeling as if he'd died yesterday.

Lovely Anna. My two are always with me and it's good to know others are up there with them. x

Thanks for that for my DT1,

10 years ago but still fresh in my memory.

I still talk to him up in the stars at nightime

Beautiful - nearly 14 years ago now, but sometimes it seems just like yesterday.

Thank you

Thanks. I had a m/c earlier this year. I live abroad and my mum is coming to visit today. She was going to come to help with the pregnancy - decided to come anyway. Just needed to have a little cry before having a good holiday with her. The poem did the trick!

Thanks Anna. I am feeling terribly disloyal to my daughter at the moment as I am expecting another one next week who would probably not have been conceived if Maisie hadn't died. Your lovely poem was just what I needed in my efforts to find the right place for her in our family and lives .
Sorry you are so down Bubble. Thinking of you.

made me cry, just m/c at weeks

After nearly 10 years, I still cried. It's getting the balance right. Octavia is still important to us, especially to her twin, but I have to get on with looking after my 4 surviving children and sometimes I feel guilty. Last year I felt bad for not remembering the anniversary of her death earlier in the day. The problem is with a surviving twin there's so much to celebrate as well and I'd hate Em to grow up with the shadow of her sister's death hanging over her birthday.

Even though dh & I are now blessed with a gorgeous dd (11 weeks old), I still remember the 2 babies I mc. Suppose I always will.
