Hearts - miscarriage

by Cheryl Merrick
With joyful hearts they announce
    the future birth of their
    long awaited child.
Eagerly, hopes are shared
    and plans made.
The waiting begins,

    til in weeks numbering
    a few more than a hand,
    their hearts ache with pain
    for the precious little heart 
    that no longer beats. 
Privileged to share in their lives,
    our hearts, feeling their loss,
    send prayers they might
    trust in thy wisdom and love,
and that their hearts may turn to thee,
    the healer of all pain
    and the mender of all hearts.
