A poem of early miscarriage, dedicated to the women who are experiencing this.

That sight of a positive pregnancy test made my hands tremble,

I did not know again that it would all crumble,

The joy turned into a broken heart,

I didn’t know we would always be apart.


I did everything right,

But I quickly knew what was in sight,

Filled with sadness again,

All I could see was a thunderstorm and rain.


Praying for my rainbow baby,

You will come to me maybe.

As I tell my body again not to let me down,

I can’t help but still frown.


You can try again they say,

If only it was that way,

I feel numb at the sight of positive pregnant test,

As I know what has happened to all the rest.


Going forward and pressing rewind,

It’s so cruel and horribly unkind,

As I breakdown and cry,

I look to the sky,

And I say a little prayer,

As I shed a tear.


Please I pray this time fill my womb,

Not just with gloom,

But with a happy healthy baby of mine,

Delivered to me in months hopefully nine.

As I gain some strength for hope,

I know this is a slippery slope,

Let’s go forwards,

And not again backwards.

For now there’s always a maybe,

That I will get my rainbow baby.
