For 32 days I lay in a hospital bed, miserable, sad, depressed, completely uncomfortable. I did not know what a blessing that time was.
For 32 days I listened to your heartbeat, felt you move, sat in silence with you. I watched you on ultrasounds, I talked to you. I had you and your twin sister all to myself. No interruptions. No activities to distract me. I did not know that would be almost all the time I got with you.
For 30 weeks and 5 days I carried you in my womb. I did not know that I would only hold you once. That I would only see you for 2 days.
I did not know I would never hear you cry.
Darling daughter. I did not know that the one time I would hold you would be as your life left your little body.
For two days we watched you struggle. For two days you blessed us with your presence. I did not know you would be gone after only 52 hours.
I did not know I could love you so much after such a short time.
