The birth of a child after the death of a child.
What a wonderful gift
What a terrifying gift.
How do I be with him?
How can I keep him safe?
Shall I hover?
Shall I hide him?
How do I not overwhelm him with my grief?
How do I not have him compete with a ghost?
It’s hard not to over-do or under-do everything.
I hardly know how to be with myself, let alone him
I don’t really have any answers to my questions.
Except what I have learned from her death.
Be there, be real and let him be a part of my life
So I stumble along and finally am able to let others help
I don’t have to do it alone
Thanks for helping me with my Rainbow Child
