The Flame: Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Day October 15th
by Ellen M. DuBois on 10/15/19
We pray our babies are held,
in your loving arms.
Blanketed by love, protected from harm.
We pray for families, in oceans of tears.
Please heal our wounded hearts,
and ease all our fears.
We ask you to help us -
we've suffered a loss,
of a little one, a baby-
we carry that cross.
It's a heavy load,
it wears on the soul.
Please send your grace.
Please make us feel whole.
Help us count our blessings,
a gift without cost.
Please help us to see them,
when we feel cold and lost.
Please help us to live as you want us to live.
Despite wounded hearts, please help us to give.
A hug to a stranger, a hand just to hold,
a shoulder to lean on, some care for the soul.
As we light our candles
on this special day,
please remind us the flame,
never goes away.
