 so much held inside
a life and death miracle
the days tick on so

Every child is a miracle
that knitting together of DNA
that sometimes
goes all wrong
and yet you love
and you suffer...,
for this miracle that is


  1. I think about this a lot as Evan and I are trying to start a family.. you just never know God's plan for the little one.. You can do everything right but its so much out of your control. It takes a lot of courage and a LOT of faith and nothing short of an abundance of hope and love

    1. Sara, she walks the walk
      and thank you for your comment
      she has a lot of faith
      go forward with faith and hope and love
      sweet woman

  2. that second verse...the love of a child even when something goes wrong...that is a beautiful thing...

    1. Yes, Rosaria, miracles all
      even those only given a blazing star

  4. Wow! I will take it from the wisdom of a wonderful mother and grandmother!... Wonderful write!...


  5. It's a long time ago for me, but I remember the miracle well.
    You've written a beautiful little meditation on the waiting.

    1. thank you Friko, it is my daughter that waits now
      and yes, I remember well too...the miracle
      that connects two souls together forever

  6. It was a painful poem to read, yet the words were beautiful.

    I like your writings. I'm "coming back" to stick around for more.

  7. Hello Mara.....I know this was painful for you
    as it is for me for different reasons...thank you for your kind words and yes, please stop by for a spot of tea anytime

  8. Hi Suz, your words spoke to my heart. Lost 2 babies and no truer words were spoken than by you. Thank you for being my first follower on my blog. Love your writing...Jen

    1. Jen, I read through your blog, and I know this sadness that you feel.....that you speak of here...just will be reunited with these precious souls in all their glory....they will be there to show you the room prepared
      This I believe......
      I was looking for the beach.....and here you live in Illinois!
      how fun.....I was thinking more California....
      Loved your writing ... and thoughts
