Just Say " I'm Sorry ! " an angel poem

You don't know how I feel
Please don't tell me that you do
There is just one way to know - have you lost a child too?
"You'll have another child!" - must I hear this each day?
Can I get another Father, too, if mine should pass away?

Don't say it was Gods will.
That s not the God I know.
Would God on purpose break my heart,
Then watch as my tears flow?

"Aren't you better yet? "
Is that what I heard you say?
NO! A part of my heat aches -
I ll always feel some pain.
You think that silence is kind,
But it hurts me even more.
I want to talk about my child
Who has gone through death's door.

Don't say these things to me,
Although you do mean well.
They don't take the pain away;
I must go through this hell.
I will get better slow but sure -
And it helps to have you near.
But a simple
"I m sorry you lost your child"
Is all I need to hear.

This is exactly how I feel. Having lost my little angel Hannah Faith in December 2008, I am still shocked and amazed at how insensitive those that surround me were and still are. You're right - if they just said those simple words, it might make it a little bit easier.
