For Those Few Weeks…

For Those Few Weeks…

Just those few weeks… I had you to myself. And that seems too short a time To be changed so profoundly.

In those few weeks- I came to know you… And to love you. You came to trust me with your life. Oh, what a life I had planned for you!

Just those few weeks – When I lost you, I lost a lifetime of hopes, Plans, dreams, and aspirations… A slice of my future simply vanished overnight.

Just those few weeks— It wasn’t enough time to convince others How special and important you were. How odd, a truly unique person has recently died And no one is mourning the passing.

Just a mere few weeks— And no “normal” person would cry all night Over a tiny, unfinished baby, Or get depressed and with- drawn day after endless day.

No one would, so why am I?

About nicole410

This is my story about the journey I am on after the stillborn death of my daughter. I am a teacher and live and work in the Atlanta area. On December 28, 2010 my entire live was turned upside down and sideways when my daughter Emily was born sleeping at 30 weeks and 6 days. I'm struggling and learning how to live without my precious baby girl. I have been diagnosed with Prothrombin Gene mutation, Factor 2 Mutation, a genetic blood clotting disorder.
