Endless Mommy Love, Leanna

Endless Mommy Love
by Leanna

A mommy’s love is endless
It reaches out of bounds.
I’d like to think it soars up to
The angels in the clouds.

Our baby boy is way up there
Watching over us.
I hope he knows his mommy’s love
Although we cannot touch.

I held you in my arms that day
And watched you as you slept.
I longed to hear your perfect cry,
I held you and I wept.

I cried because we would not share,
So many memories.
I cried because you had to go
And fly with angel wings.

I miss your body
Your heart, your soul
Growing inside of me
I miss your life within my life
I miss what we used to be.

Why couldn’t we bring you home that day,
Everything was done.
Now your crib sits empty,
Your teddy bears alone.

Our family feels incomplete,
Because you are not here.
We ache for our sweet Nicholas,
Please tell me that you’re near.

I pray for peace every day
And deep inside I know,
That love has a way of healing us,
That our love will only grow.


about the poem.
In Leanna's words, "Endless Mommy Love was written only a few short weeks after losing Nicholas, in January of 2009. Writing is an escape for me as well as a healer. This was written while I was clouded with intense grief and yet, it depicts so many of the raw, heart-wrenching moments of that time."

about the poet.
Leanna describes herself as a "wife, a daughter, a sister, a friend, but most of all, I am a mother to four beautiful children. Three walk beside me in life and one shines down from Heaven, never ceasing to guide our way." Leanna writes about her journey at Nicholas' Touch. She also creates Angel Wings at Angel Wings Memorial Boutique.
