Beloved child
The story behind the poem

This poem was written in my darkest hour. One sunny day in May my partner and unborn baby died suddenly.

You may think: should this not be in the section of sorrow? The answer is a resounding no. The last verse gives you the peace that only a mother's arms can bring and with them hope and security.

Life brings many joys and heartaches. It is definitely how you cope with the latter which shows who you are. I have another daughter who is now six and is the light of her dad's eye and she is the today, tomorrow and real life.

Be safe.

by Edward Graham
