My Little Pumpkin

by Angie   Apr 24, 2014

Dear Pumpkin;

I thought it would get easier
but no...

it gets harder as days go by
tears leak from my eyes
as I wonder how you are
are you healthy
what do you weigh
are you a thumb sucker
do you giggle and play

You're five months old now
I only saw you once
held you in my arms
a precious memory
captured in a photo
that's kept close to my heart
and will be treasured forever

My heart aches deeply
every time I see your daddy
every time I talk to him
it's in his eyes
it's in his voice
the pain, the sadness

And your brother, Peanut
the one who fell in love with you
while you were still
in your mothers tummy
and could not wait
till you came out
he doesn't understand where you went
why he can't hug or kiss you anymore

They are both lost without you

I don't know why or even understand
why your mother took you away
and I probably never will
but I'm wishing you a happy life
hoping we'll meet again one day

You are always in my thoughts and in my heart
I miss you so much
I love you My Little Pumpkin
I always will

Hugs, Nana

    I am so glad you decided to write this out, and share it. It sometimes is horrible to let it out, and to feel it all when it comes pouring onto the page, but it is a release, it is a form of therapy, which helps to unlock the pressure from inside. So please keep writing.

    This poem is so touching, from the aspect of not only your emotions, but that of 2 children; a baby who is missing out on a family that he is not yet old enough to understand, and that of the older child, who is not old enough to understand either, yet knows he misses someone, and that his little brother was once there with his mum, and now they are not. So much sadness.

    There seems to be lots of questions here, especially in the beginning, and I think you should go back and separate them all, using question marks. This way each question will be emphasised on its own, and really hold the power of that one thought.

    You can really feel your heartache in this, and how much it pains you to have to accept this. But I am sure there will be someone else on here who can relate to this, and feel comfort that they are not alone. And your ending holds a bit of hope, because no one knows what the future brings for us, and I believe it won't be this way forever, you will see him again, and things will work out.

    Thinking of you always, and well done for writing such a personal poem, and letting it all out.

    Stay strong xxx

    There will be a day when you'll be able to see him again. Stay strong and remember him, keep him in your thoughts but don't let it weigh heavy on your heart because its not your fault.
