A Different Child

A different child, people notice
There's a special glow around you.
You grow surrounded by love
Never doubting you are wanted;
Only look at the pride and joy
In your mother and father's eyes.
And if sometimes between the smiles
There's a trace of tears,
One day you'll understand.
You'll understand there was once another child.
A different child.
Who was in their hopes and dreams.
That child will never outgrow the baby clothes.
That child will never keep them up at night.
In fact, that child will never be any trouble at all...
Except sometimes, in a silent moment,
When mother and father miss so much
That different child.
May hope and love wrap you warmly
And may you learn the lesson forever:
How infinitely precious,
How infinitely fragile is this life on earth.
One day, as a young man or woman
You may see another mother's tears
Another father's silent grief
Then you, and you alone will understand
And offer the greatest comfort.
When all hope seems lost
you will tell them with great compassion:
"I know how you feel.
I'm only here because my parents tried again."

  1. I am living proof that eka herbal WORKS and can be incredibly useful to couples with infertility issues. My husband and I found out I was pregnant after over 6 years of desperately trying. We were both checked but the doctors could find nothing. I ordered eka herbal medication after hearing numerous success stories of other women using your recommendations. As soon as I started implementing the instructions including doing some acupuncture with your guidance, I could see a dramatic improvement of my health within days and within 2 months we had a new little one on the way! I have gone through years of disappointment never believing it could happen to. It did. Contact eka on via (dreka14demons@gmail.com)
