Poem: The Loss

How did I get here?
I mean, just yesterday I was living my life. I was doing my own thing and everything was right.
How did I get here?
Just the other day I was like “I’m gonna try a new hairdo, travel the world, and not care who cares about me doing my thing.
How did I get here, though?
Did I make a wrong turn back there somewhere?
Just the other day I was talking about taking extra classes, spending more time with hubby, launching a new idea, and living my best life.

Can someone please tell me, how did I get here?
How did I go from high hopes and great expectations to grieving a child I never knew. I’ll tell you how I got here. One day, I discovered you were in my womb. Then, less than a month later you were gone. In such a short time, I imagined the rest of my life with you and now, my life feels empty at the fact your gone.
How did I get here?
I’ll tell you how I got here. I got here through the loss of you.
