A Note from Mommy to Sebastian

I wrote this poem back in November 2014 or December 2014.  Can’t remember the exact date.  I just know it was very early on in the grieving process.  The poem has a follow up response called ‘A Note from Sebastian to Mommy’.  You can’t read one and not the other… if that makes sense.  It is amazing how much stuff you find in your diaries.  It never ceases to amaze me.

Sebby Seb oh Sebby

Don’t you know that

 Mommy loves you

To the moon and back.

 ~~~

Sebby Seb oh Sebby

Within my womb

I rocked you to sleep

As our beating hearts

Became one.

 ~~~

Sebby Seb oh Sebby

Don’t you know

Mommy misses you so much

There’s an empty cradle

Standing next to my bed

With your blanket

Carefully knitted

And pulled ever so gently

Back.

 ~~~

Sebby Seb oh Sebby

Mommy wishes you were here

So we could cuddle

As the rain goes pitter patter

pitter patter against the window.

 ~~~

Sebby Seb oh Sebby

All Mommy wanted

Was to keep you safe

To keep you happy

To watch the stars with you

And to love you.

 ~~~

Sebby Seb oh Sebby

Don’t you know that

Mommy loves you

And misses you

And wishes you were cradled

In her arms

Forevermore.

 ~~~

Sebby Seb oh Sebby

Mommy just wants you to know

You are safe

In the arms of Jesus
