A poem in honor of a child I never knew.

Empty

O empty hands, that never touched you;

O empty arms, that never rocked you;

O empty eyes, that never saw you,

Now filled with tears torrential.

O empty womb, that could not hold you;

O empty mind, that can’t forget you;

O empty heart, that longed to love you,

And loves you now although you never lived.

O motherless child, lost, not forgotten;

O name that I gave you,

Though I could not give you life—

O Emma, come back to me.
