How I wished? - 55 on Friday 2014-2

In the bedroom, tears ran down my cheek. 

He held my hand to show his presence but respected my need for silence. 

We had lost yet another baby. We had lost count.

I sat wishing for holding my baby in my hand and admiring the innocent face. Nothing more and nothing less.
