Almost Five Years Ago

Almost five years ago

You should have been born

Can it really be-

I’ve had that long to mourn?

Every child I hold

Is somehow even more dear

From wanting you in my arms

To hug you oh so near

My aching arms have held

So many babies since

Yet when I think of you

The pain still makes me wince
