On The Day You Were Due – Baby loss

Dear Poppy

So today is the day you were due to enter into our world. A day we were so excited about. But instead 16 weeks ago today you entered our world dreaming sweet dreams. How I wish things were different and we were waiting anxiously to meet you.

Post title: On the day you were due - Today we should have met you.
All content is my own thoughts, feelings, beliefs and experience from my own journey of baby loss. This post may contain affiliate links, please see the Copyright and Disclosures page for more information.

But instead our world has changed completely. Our family will never be the same again as you will always be apart from us. Yet you have brought us so much love and taught us about what pure love means. You have taught your sister and brothers life lessons which I wish they had never had to confront. Yet you have instilled in them a strength which they will forever hold.

Each day that passes we miss you so much more. I honestly don’t know how we could possibly miss you more. Yet each day we do. Every day I long for you to be in my arms and looking after you in a way that only a Mummy can. But instead I hold your blanket and Teddy to feel you close to me, I look at your beautiful photos wishing with all my might that I was really looking down at you.

Quote: We were supposed to have a lifetime together.

So our precious Poppy, although the day is here that we should be meeting you, we have already said our hello and goodbye. But our goodbye won’t be forever, it will be a see you later. A see you later to when we can hold you again. And I promise you my precious baby that once I have you in my arms again I will never, ever let you go again.

All my love forever and ever
