I honour you as a mother,
even though your baby is not with you.
I remember your baby though I never met her.
I honour all the love you feel for her though she was gone too soon.
There are many who will not acknowledge you today.
I will not be one of them.
I know the depth and strength of your love for your baby.
I know that your baby is still in your heart,
and will always be.
My love goes out to you,
wherever you are in this world.
You and I are not alone,
as we sit with that empty space at the table.
I close my eyes and reach out to hold your hand.
The road we walk is a lonely one,
but we are not alone.
We have each other.
And we also have our babies,
heart of our heart,
part of who we are and what we have become.
So I honour you today,
my friend and beautiful, loving mother.
