Tiny angel rest your wings sit with me for awhile.
How I long to hold your hand and see your tender smile.
Tiny angel, look at me I want this image clear…
That I’ll forget your precious face that is my biggest fear.
Tiny angel, can you tell me why you have gone away?
You weren’t here for very long…why is it you couldn’t stay?
Tiny angel shook his head “These things I do not know…
But I do know that you love me and that I love you so.”
I am a lot of things, wife, sister, friend, and aunt but most of all I am a grieving mother of a lost baby girl taken too soon. This blog is my way of venting and surviving. I'm trying to find my way back to funny, sarcastic, and happy but it's quite a journey.
Today while doing my normal reading blogs by the community of grieving mothers I discovered a new phrase..."Rainbow baby"
I read about 5 blogs today that used this term. At first I thought it meant the loss of a second child but then I read on...
The meaning of a rainbow baby is:
Rainbow baby is the term for a baby after the loss of a previous child.It is the understanding that a rainbow's beauty does not negate the ravages of the storm.When a rainbow appears, it doesn't mean that the storm never happenedor that the family is not still dealing with its aftermath.What it means is that something beautiful and full of lighthas appeared in the midst of the darkness and clouds.
This one phrase brought so much, for the lack of a better word SUNSHINE into my day. So ladies, when everything seems dark try to remember that someday your rainbow baby will come. It just might be a little more work for us than some. So, I will leave this post with "I cannot wait until Kevin and I have our rainbow baby"
