I lost a baby

I lost a baby.

In my dreams, i lost a baby.

Though he was just born.

And he wasn’t mine.

But i’d held him.

He’d smiled at me, and i had loved him.

Then he was gone.


I wanted to hold him one more time.

To let him know how much i loved him.

Though i could not save him.


I wanted so much to say goodbye.

So that he knew that it was okay.


I feel loss.

I am shattered and inconsolable,

Though he wasn’t real.

And he wasn’t even mine.
