An Ugly Pair of ShoesAuthor Unknown
I am wearing a pair of shoes.
They are ugly shoes.
Uncomfortable Shoes.
I hate my shoes.

Each day I wear them, and each day I wish I had another pair.
Some days my shoes hurt so bad that I do not think I can take another step.
Yet, I continue to wear them.
I get funny looks wearing these shoes.
They are looks of sympathy.
I can tell in others eyes that they are glad they are my shoes and not theirs.
They never talk about my shoes.
To learn how awful my shoes are might make them uncomfortable.
To truly understand these shoes you must walk in them.
But, once you put them on, you can never take them off.
I now realize that I am not the only one who wears these shoes.
There are many pairs in the world.
Some women are like me, and ache daily as they try and walk in them.
Some have learned how to walk in them so they don’t hurt quite as much.
Some have worn the shoes so long that days will go by
before they think of how much they hurt.
No woman deserves to wear these shoes.
Yet, because of the shoes I am a stronger woman.
These shoes have given me the strength to face anything.
They have made me who I am.
I will forever walk in the shoes of a woman who has lost a child.
A Man in Grief

It must be difficult
To be a man in grief,
Since “men don’t cry” and “men are strong”
No tears can bring relief.
It must be very difficult
To stand up to the test
And field calls and visitors
So she can get some rest.
They always ask if she’s doing all right
And what she’s going through,
But seldom take his hand and ask,
“My friend, but how are you?”.
He hears her crying in the night
and thinks his heart will break.
He dries her tears and comforts her,
But stays strong for her sake.
It must be very difficult
To start each day anew
And try to be brave~
He lost his baby too

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 thier choice.
Some I send for a lifetime,
And others for a 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 here.
He took a breath and
cleared his throat,
And then I saw a tear.
I wish that I could show you,
What your child is doing today,
If you could see your child smile,
With other children who say:
We go to earth and learn our lessons,
Of love and life and fear.
My mommy loved me oh so much,
I got to come straight 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 each 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 one,
Your children are ok.

Your babies are here in my home,
They'll be at heavens gate 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 you'll know that
you're the best one!

Thanks Kimberlee, for letting me share this!

They say there is a reason,
They say that time will heal,
But neither time nor reason
Will change the way I feel.
For no one knows the heartache
That lies behind our smiles.
No one knows howmany time
We have broken down and cired.
We want to tell you something,
So there won't be any doubt,
You're so wonderful to think of
But so hard to be without.
