LITTLE SNOWDROP

LITTLE SNOWDROP

Little Snowdrop

The world may never notice

If a Snowdrop doesn't bloom,

Or even pause to wonder

If the petals fall too soon.

But every life that ever forms,

Or ever comes to be,

Touches the world in some small way

For all eternity.

The little one we long for

Was swiftly here and gone.

But the love that was then planted

Is a light that still shines on.

And though our arms are empty,

Our hearts know what to do.

Every beating of our hearts

Says that we love you.

  • Such a lovely, touching little poem xxx

  • It is a lovely poem (by Auther Unknown) it is often used though at babies funerals...in my opinion perhaps a little bit too poignant for an ovarian cancer site ...where people are already dealing with survival issues...(and some are also dealing with infertility, loss of babies etc brought on by the nature of our disease) ... other people might draw comfort from this....they are beautiful words...but makes me feel a little sad :-( xx

    P.S. I wish you well with your medical studies... and I hope you will find the support you need xx

  • Thank you for ur valuable feed back Gwyn... i am sorry that i didnt think of the that reason.... its just that ma heart was shaken to the core reading this and i wished to share this for the benefit of other..... i am sorry it made you feel sad Gwyn... it was indeed stupid of me ofcourse... hope that you are fine Gwyn... keep in touch

  • Dear Punnoose619,

    Thank you for your lovely reply.... I read on your profile that you are lonely and depressed I am truly sorry about this...and wish I could be of help....but I think that reading any literature that's sad (even though deeply meaningful) won't help your situation..... I write poetry myself but don't read poetry very often because I don't want to be influenced by others (as my own thoughts might get muddled... if that makes sense) anyway yesterday I did read this poem (there might have been a reason for me reading it) it is a poem to share.... so I hope you share this with others....

    Smiling is infectious,

    You catch it like the flu.

    When someone smiled

    at me today, I started smiling too,

    I passed around the corner,

    and someone saw me grin.

    When he smiled I realized,

    I'd passed it on to him! I thought

    about that smile, then I realized it's worth.

    A single smile just like mine,

    could travel round the Earth!

    Share your Smile by Passing this on!

  • Hello punnoose,

    I see you have posted this thoughtful poem on the anxiety support group, and the site for depression, anxiety support NZ, as well as Ovacome, so I guess your going through a lot of emotional stuff right now. Maybe the other sites are going to be able to give you the support you need right now as in my opinion some ladies here would find your poem difficult when they are going through so much such as loss of fertility or even having to fight to survive.

  • reaal sorry Pelican i swear i didnt think of that reason while posting... as i said above in ma reply to Gwen its just that ma heart was shaken to the core reading this and i wished to share this for the benefit of others... real sorry.... hope you are well... :)
