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.
