Artist's Description

As I held your little hand
I tried not to cry
While saying goodbye
Not for long, I said.

Tomorrow I’ll be back
at your bedside.

Mommy will be release today
But, you need to stay.
For how long I can’t say.

You will have lots of hospital
mommies here for you.
Then when I return
I will hold you very close
Kangaroo care is what I love the most.

This is the hardest thing
a mother will ever do
I don’t want to leave you.

Stay strong, I tell myself
As tears fall down my cheek
I can taste the salt in my mouth.

I kiss your little forehead
over and over again
Goodbye, I said, walking away
Empty handed

Scared to leave you
At anytime your heart rate could drop
Then your breathing will stop
Turning your little body blue

Tomorrow is another day
When I will be happy to say hi
sad to say goodbye, left wondering why
and asking God please don’t let my baby die.
