"Still Held" -John Mark Green It’s hard to know how to comfort someone who has had a loved one die. Whatever we can say seems so inadequate, and our words can easily trivialize their suffering. Sometimes the best thing we can offer them is our presence - just be with them. This poem was written for a mother who had suffered the unspeakable pain of losing her child.
The little ones we longed for were here and quickly gone but the love that was then planted is a light that still shines on. And though our arms are empty our hearts know what to do. Every beating of my heart says "I Remember You!" miscarriage quotes
