A beautiful poem

I found this on Baby Carpio’s site. Thanks for letting me borrow it.

Nobody Knew You

by Jan Cosby

Nobody knew you
“Sorry about the miscarriage dear, but you couldn’t have been very far along.”

Nobody knew you
“It’s not as though you lost an actual person.”
…were real

Nobody knew you
“Well it probably wasn’t a viable fetus. It’s all for the best.”
…were perfect.

Nobody knew you
“You can always have another!”
…were unique.

Nobody knew you
“You already have a beautiful child. Be happy!”
…were loved for yourself.

Nobody knew you
…but us.

And we will always remember

    I’m glad it could help you. Sometimes people will say insensitive things, and they don’t understand how deep those words cut to the core. Feel free to stay in touch if you ever want to talk or vent!
