Hello,
I have been told that poetry is one of the best ways to be able to come to terms with miscarriage. I have lost two little angels in just over a year and was wondering if anyone knows of any good sites for poetry?
Thanks

Hello, I'm so sorry for your losses I lost 2 babies in a row a couple of years ago and I found this poem on here which really helped me.

Little Snowdrop

The world may never notice
If a snowdrop dosen't bloom
or ever pause to wonder
if the petals fall to soon
but every little life that forms
or ever comes to be
touches the world in some small way for all eternity

The little one we long for
was swiftly here then gone
but the love that was then planted
is a light that still shines on.

I know it sounds mad but I used to repeat it in my head over and over when people used say insensitive things or if I was having a bad day. I have come a long way since those dark days but still use the poem to remember my lost little ones.
