when the babies die

In the middle of the night I will wake you up

Gently shake your shoulder and tell you it is time to go

There is a safer place than here. Shh. Don’t fuss or worry. Quietly tip toe out of bed and wear your best clothes my love

This place is the best place to be. You are a lucky one when you arrive here.

I will give you one last kiss and hug you so tight. I am nervous and heartbroken that you will be sent off without me. But I know you will be safe.

My little jigari with your small feet and toes. Your soft cheeks.

Go forth to the arms of God my precious baby. Don’t worry that you are going alone. I will be with you soon.
