With hearts soft

O let’s live with

hearts as soft

as velvet’s touch,

and minds open

to need, so we

can reach beyond

the narrow self

that says we’ve

done enough,

to sense the pain

and here the stories

of grief’s dreadful ways,

in the lives of women

who have lost a baby,

a tender longing part

of their deepest self.
