Nine years ago...



Not much from me today.

It will be a day of quiet reflection.

The kids are at a play date, without me, all day.

This is no accident - I planned it, so that I could have today to be, by myself.

It was on this day nine years ago that I lost my first baby.

It's not that I spend the day crying. I just like to be peaceful.

If I could fall into the sky


Do you think time would pass me by?


Because you know I'd walk a thousand miles

If I could just see you.

It still makes me so very sad.

  1. Oh Lucy, I do the same thing in October. Just a day for reflection and peace, sometimes a few tears, I think we can allow ourselves that. x

  2. I feel you on this one. I lost our first beebster in July of 2000. He or she had a baby brother almost a year to the day - July 28 was the date our son was born. But I still wonder ... our life woul dhave been so different ... but then we wouldn't have what we have now, right? all the stuff to be grateful for ... hugs to you.

    Have you considered lighting a permanent candle at the Bonnie Babes (now Small Miracles) memorial site? Unfortunately it's a phone-in thing only at this point, but considering your connection you might like to... here's the number anyway 1300 266 643.
