I Miss You

To my miscarried little brothers and sisters

 

I miss you

You were not another number to me

All life is precious

I’ve been taught that from birth

The breaths you breathed through another

Still count

Your genetic code was unique

Because you could not live, someone else did

Yet they say you never existed

They care about organisms in ponds

Water on Faraway planets

Foreign life in science fiction

Imaginary genders

Parts of the brain

But not you

My living, growing, dying

Baby sibling

I miss you

Even if the entire world never knew

You existed

 

 

I want to hear from you!
