Just Those Few Weeks

Just Those Few Weeks

For just those few weeks
I had you to myself.
And that seems too short a time
to be changed so profoundly.
In those few weeks,
I came to know you…
and to love you.
You came to trust me with your life.
Oh what a life I had planned for you!
Just those few weeks…
when I lost you,
I lost a lifetime of hopes,
plans, dreams and aspirations.
A slice of my future simply vanished overnight.
Just those few weeks…
It wasn’t enough time to convince others
how special and important you were.
How odd, a truly unique person has recently died
and no one is mourning the passing.
Just a mere few weeks..
And no “normal” person would cry all night
Over a tiny unfinished baby,
or get depressed and withdraw day after endless day.
No one would, so why am I??
You were just those few weeks, my little one.
You darted in and out of my life too quickly.
But it seems that’s all the time you needed
to make my life richer
and to give me a small glimpse of eternity.

    Hi Mandy,

    I just saw your updated signature line on FF. I had no idea. I’m so very sorry for your loss. I was blessed to see your Thanksgiving prayer – what an inspiration to see you giving thanks the day after losing your little one and putting it all in God’s hands. You’re in my thoughts and prayers.

    ((Hugs)). I lost my precious baby at 8 weeks and could not have more. That was in 2002 and I still mourn. Prayers to you.

    OH my Gosh…I am so very sorry. I know the joy of your dreams that included this little one. So so sorry…what a beautiful writing to help you and others through something so painful. I was there before you once, so I do know…but truly, there really ARE no words. just know we are all thinking of your family.

    Everyone is just on loan to us. Some for much shorter than we want.

    God is with you and will strengthen you at this time. It is good that you are sharing this with your readers…it may help someone else to not feel that they are alone if it has happened to them.

    Amanda,
    I am so sorry to hear of your loss. I feel for you. Cry when you want to, talk about it.

    It’s weird how we feel like we know someone without actually meeting them (as I do through your blog). You have such great strength and you and your family are in my thoughts and prayers.
