Angels Await

My sisters who share the sorrow of miscarriage, I dedicate this to all mothers who have loved and lost.

Someday the pain will go away

I struggle to count it all joy

Your birthstone? A garnet or a pearl

I don’t know if you were a girl or boy

Why did this have to happen

I know everything works for good

Trials and hurt I expected

But this I never could

You always hear my sorrow, Lord

You wipe away my tears

May your comfort guide me

Until my very last years

For on that day in the clouds

I’ll hear a shriek of glee

A trio of sweet babies will run and

jump on me

I will know them all by name, though

we haven’t even met

They tell me they’ve been waiting

To erase all my regret

They will thank me for my tummy

It’s comfort they will praise

Then they’ll point and show me

The warmth of heaven’s rays

I’ll hold them in my arms

My heart will be a twitter

I’ll greet them with a kiss

And talk about brother and sister

My precious bundle of angels

And an embrace as warm as the sun

This reunion I will long for

When the victory is won

“God blesses those who mourn, for they will be comforted.” Matthew 5:4 (NLT)

“The Lord is close to those who are brokenhearted, he rescues those whose spirits are crushed.” Psalm 34:18 (NLT)
