A Walk to Remember

A Walk to Remember
I walk to remember the steps you'll never take. I carry you with me as I firmly plant my feet. Our trek started long ago before my belly swelled. You were a love that grew like a butterfly wings that beat. Your gentle flutters that became kicks upon which I would dwell. And I would talk to you, sweet babe, about the world you would soon meet. The sun always shone upon us then when you were in my womb, as I was eager to show you the world that would have been your home. How you'd loved the sun shinning blue sky without a cloud. The autumn leaves turning the snow falling all around. The flowers in the summer would have filled your eyes with smiles. And the rain that might have fallen would have caused you great suprise. You would have traveled far with me holding me by the hand, and I'd have shown you all I could more than I can imagine, you hold my Heart tightly now as though we're holding hands. How far we've traveled little one and my life with you has been sweet. For I carry you in my heart, as I firmly plant my feet.

October has been declared "National Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Month". Hundreds of parents, healthcare professionals and friends across the United States will be participating in a "A Walk to Remember".
