You make friends because you have things in common.
We are friends because of our children.
The older ones, the younger ones,
the ones who never even had a chance to breathe.
They are our reason for being.
Our heartbeat, our life’s blood.
Whether we have lots of memories or only a few,
we are joined by an unbreakable bond.
We are the ones left behind, to remember
and carry the torch for those we remember so lovingly.
We are there for ourselves and each other.
Because we understand the pain of loss.
We must also be there for those
who unfortunately join our ranks.
Because we are the parents of lost children,
the bruised hearts,
the keepers of memories.
