Meaningful Songs After a Miscarriage

By December 11, 2008

Follow me on:

People have always tended to find comfort in music, whether they're simply listening to it or writing it themselves, and many people associate a specific song with various events in their lives both happy and sad. Miscarriage is no exception.

Many women find comfort in specific songs after a miscarriage, as I've discovered after years on miscarriage message boards. Sometimes they're specifically about miscarriage, sometimes about getting through difficult experiences, or other times something else completely. Specific songs I've seen mentioned a lot are "I Hope You Dance" by Lee Ann Womack, "Glory Baby" by Watermark, and Sarah McLachlan's "Angel." But I know there are loads more.

Is there a song (or poem or anything else) that has been especially helpful or meaningful you in the time after your miscarriage? If so, please share by leaving a comment.

“Spark”, by Tori Amos. Tori Amos had a few miscarriages, and the song talks about that. I love that song.

“I wonder”…

I wonder who you were?

I wonder what your personality would have been like?

I wonder if you would have looked like me?

I wonder alot of things…

like why? and WHEN?

But there are some things I don’t wonder…because I know.

Like how much I already loved you.

I don’t doubt God, not at all.

I just wonder how it would have felt to hold you in my arms…

but it’s okay because now I know your in the arms of Someone who

loved you even more.

Life is so short, yours had just begun, not out of the womb yet

but you were already a “someone”.

I know God is my strength right now because

without Him I just couldn’t go on.

But now I’ll take life…new life, at the time of conception-

not for granted!

It’s all a true miracle that only God deciedes.

Thank You God for creating a little miracle inside me

and even though it’s time was very short…

it was my little miracle nonetheless.

*(This poem was actually written by me-during my loss. It helped me really express my TRUE feelings.)

This poem helped me I have lost 6 pregnancy’s two single and two twin and no live birth’s so hopefuly it will give you some confort were it fills like there is none.

I thought of you and closed my eyes
And prayed to God today
I asked “What makes a Mother?”
And I know I heard Him say.

“A Mother has a baby”
This we know is true
“But God can you be a Mother,
When your baby’s not with you?”

“Yes, you can,” He replied
With confidence in His voice
“I give many women babies,
When they leave is not their choice.

Some I send for a lifetime,
And others for the day.
And some I send to feel your womb,
But there’s no need to stay.”

“I just don’t understand this God
I want my baby to be here.”
He took a deep breath and cleared His throat,
And then I saw the tear.

“I wish I could show you,
What your child is doing today.
If you could see your child’s smile,
With all the other children and say…

‘We go to Earth to learn our lessons,
Of love and life and fear.
My Mommy loved me oh so much,
I got to come strait here.

I feel so lucky to have a Mom,
Who had so much love for me.
I learned my lessons very quickly,
My Mommy set me free.

I miss my Mommy oh so much,
But I visit her every day.
When she goes to sleep,
On her pillow’s where I lay

I stroke her hair and kiss her cheek,
And whisper in her ear.
Mommy don’t be sad today,
I’m your baby and I’m here.’

“So you see my dear sweet ones,
your children are okay.
Your babies are born here in My home,
And this is where they’ll stay.

They’ll wait for you with Me,
Until your lesson’s through.
And on the day that you come home
they’ll be at the gates for you.

So now you see what makes a Mother,
It’s the feeling in your heart
it’s the love you had so much of
Right from the very start

Though some on earth may not realize,
you are a Mother.
Until their time is done.
They’ll be up here with Me one day
and know that you are the best one!”

I can truly relate to many of the songs mentioned already written about miscarriage. I find comfort in the song from Celtic Roots & Rhythms Heartcry called Song for Kim. Difficult to listen to at times even now but written from the heart of someone who lived it.

My Four Week Baby

Last night
I dreamed about you
my baby boy

i saw a picture of us
me holding you
in my arms
with your bright smile
and big blue eyes

and i was smiling too

baby

my baby
i love you

- – - – - – - -

and to think
that you are
right now
with Jesus

to think that even tho
you didnít live here
long enough to see my face
or even hear my voice
that you are seeing His
and hearing His
that right now
that you are alive
in Heaven
and someday
i will see you

my tiny tiny baby
i know you
somehow
i know you

and i miss you
