Baby Grace

You came into this world
so innocent and complete
with a light in your eyes
and a step in your feet
We could all feel it
your heartbeat moved the land
as does every child’s
as does every sand.
You came and you moved us
barely waving a hand
you didn’t blink an eye
and couldn’t make a plan.
But you came to ground
you murmured over the ultrasound
that you would make it to this day
when darkness turns to light
with no promise to stay.
Now you lay in peace
and perfectly in place
to live in our hearts
forever, as sweet baby Grace.

I wrote this poem in response to a request to write a poem about a child how died shortly after birth. The baby was named Grace, and the poem was supposed to make the parents feel a little better.
