Constant Ache

There is a place in my heart,

that has a constant ache.

No matter how the years have passed,

its still so hard to take.

Never leaving my mind,

not a single day goes by.

That I don't think of my baby,

and still have to cry.

I have accepted the loss,

but my memories still surface.

If only I could understand,

and someday learn the purpose.

To never have held my child,

is what hurts me so.

I have moved on from grief,

yet it hurts to just let go.

Someday I'll know the reason,

and be with my baby once more.

Jesus will hand me my child,

as I arrive on that Golden Shore.
