A poem written by a Mother on Mother's Day

Someone emailed this to me and I thought it was worth sharing eventhough it's a day late.

Remembering You On Mother's Day
No little hugs or kisses to wake me up on this morn.
No special card or roses sent my way.
Bittersweet feelings, at least a thousand tears;
Quietly, I celebrated you this day.
I am not like the others,
Though I still wear the name.
I cannot hold you in my arms,
But I love you just the same.
I knelt beside your resting place,
Though I knew you were not there.
I prayed to God in Heaven:
A peace I found in knowing,
sweet child, you're in His care.
To see a mother with her baby-
How my heart breaks in two;
But never would I trade this pain
If it meant there had no been you.
At times I feel I cannot go on-
Living this life without you.
Yet hidden behind my deepest grief
There is joy unexpainably true.
For my daughter,
you will always be a blessing from above.
Your brief existence has bestowed on me a name I cherish dear.
And although this day is not what I imagined it to be,
I will treasure it because of you-

MY FIRST MOTHER'S DAY. Written by Jana Spigener In loving remebrance of Mercedes Ruth Spigener Stillborn at 39 weeks September 21, 1995
