Still My Son

Assembling an army to end preventable stillbirths

Little Heartbreaker

Our beloved, beautiful son
Too perfect for this earth
Forget other heartbreaks
This one is by far the worst

Thinking of him always
The boy who stole my heart
Forever mommy’s angel
Forever together and yet apart

Loving him more each day
With a smile hiding the pain
Searching for his signs
Until we hold him again

Looking for answers
Finding faith is best
Our little heartbreaker
How truly he is missed





  1. My heart breaks for you. The poem is beautiful. Love you. Wish there were words that didn’t sound like platitudes to convey my wish for your complete healing.

    • Thank you Isandra. I know most people struggle to figure out the right words to say but, when someone is grieving, any genuine and supportive words will do. It can be a lonely journey, so it helps if you say something like “I’m sorry, I don’t know what to say, but I’m here for you”. Thanks for doing that for me with your kind comment.

  2. I certainly feel your pain! You are not alone and you have family and friends to lean on at this most sorrowful time!

    • Thank you Julie. I know you do and it breaks my heart to know that. You’ve been a great role model to me in many ways and it’s terrible we have to share in this journey. It is comforting knowing you understand and are there for me. I am here for you too if you ever want to talk. *Hugs*

  3. Beautifully said Ana; the loss of a child is the hardest pain to endure. If expression helps heal the pain then this is good. Love to you and your family.

    • Thanks so much Sandi. Yes, expressing my feelings is pretty much a necessity for me at this time. Otherwise the thoughts would eat me up inside. I just have to write them down and put them out there. Hoping in some way it will help others. Knowing you are not alone and connecting to each other can help with healing. Sending love to you and your family as well!
