For a fraction of time, written by a friend

I received a wonderful note today on my Facebook page, from a dear college friend. With her permission, I am posting it here. It touched my heart so much this morning. She reached out to give me support and a poem she wrote during a hard time in her struggle to have her beautiful baby.

She wrote, “For one moment in time, your embryo held the promise of life and all your hopes for being a mother,” that is the truth. And all those hopes came crashing down on us for a third time.

I hope this poem resonates as much with you as it did for me.

“You were only there for a fraction of time, in that fraction of time, a million clouds passed over your heart and together we dreamt of a future, a future filled of unlimited possibilities.

You were only there for a fraction of time, in that fraction of time, you taught me how to dissolve my past and look only to our future.

You were only there for a fraction of time, from the bottom of this sea, sea of tears and grief and love and pain. I can hear your cry. I can see your eyes, the cool grey of the sky and the warm blue if these waters. I can feel your breath and feel your heart beating as one with with mine, if only for a fraction of time.”

Thank you Patch!
