A baby died; it couldn't be worse

When talking about your loss
Your miscarriage, ectopic or still birth
Being clear is essential to make others know
That "A baby died; it couldn't be worse"

Don't go beating around the bush
To save other people's feelings
Your grief is real, hard and true
Whether old or in it's beginnings

Of course there are those times
When we don't have any energy to share
In that moment just hold on tight
To friends, please don't despair

Together we can make it
Through the dark days and nights
We can lean against each other
And our babies we'll always hold tight
