Bereavement Poetry and Prose

Would you like to contribute to this page?

Many bereaved parents find it helpful to share their experiences with others and to hear from parents in similar positions to themselves. As part of our grief support, we are building a database of stories, meaningful poems or prose that have helped you or others through the grieving process. These meaningful words offer reassurance, relief from distress, or a much-needed conncection to someone who understands.

In Memory of Angel


In Memory of Angel


There is no greater expression of love, beauty, innocence,

 than the one on a baby's face angels face, as I held her that night.

Soft, white skin, mountains of cheeks and forehead, pinky nose,

eyelids paper thin hiding those searing brown eyes.

They made her face come alive with colour, nature,

her whole being reaching out to me, seizing me, still part of me.

Tiny mouth open in awe and wonder, mystery dreams,

lullaby, zigzag tongue so pink.

I would have thought she was asleep if not for the dark mark on her face.

White sheet.
