Can I share my miscarriage poem?

I suffered a missed miscarriage last month at 12 weeks, the baby had stopped growing a few weeks before. It took 4 weeks for the whole process to be over and now I feel that I can finally start dealing with my emotions. I have good days and bad, but I worry that I have no way of remembering or properly acknowledging what happened. I don't want a keepsake or anything like that, so I decided to write a little poem to sum up how I feel and I really would like to share it.

My little love, my little bean,
My treasure who I've never seen.
A piece of life, a piece of me,
My baby who I'll never see.
I ache inside, it hurts my heart,
For the life we'd have that didn't start.
I must move on, but won't forget.
I'll miss you though we never met.

That's great, Chocolate, it brought a tear to my eye though let's face it that's not difficult I hope you found the process of writing it therapeutic and it helped you process some of the emotions. I'm so sorry you lost your baby and find yourself in this horrible position, but I'm sure that poem will help a lot of other people who are struggling. Thanks for sharing.

Im so sorry for your loss. Thank you for sharing your poem, it's lovely. I'm terrible with words and wouldn't know where to start to write a poem although I have thought about it.

I also had a mmc last month and know exactly how u feel xx
Reading the poem made me cry but also touched my broken heart xx
Thank you

Sorry for your loss. I had a mmc at the start of last year. I now have a 4 month old. Yes, move on but never forget. Exactly.

That's so lovely,I'm currently going through a miscarriage it's very comforting to know the feelings I have are normal and that I'm not alone at this terrible time.
I wish you all good health and happiness.

I'm so glad that my little poem has maybe been a little bit of comfort to other women going through the same thing as me. We all deal with things differently but its good to know that other people understand.
