On every anniversary of the stillbirth of our baby girl Isobel, we light a candle in her memory and remember her by reciting this poem:
Another year has passed since you went away
Such shock and grief the saddest day
We never got to know you at all
To see you crawl, watch you grow tall
We know that you are safe and well
Exactly where it’s hard to tell
When we look up at the stars at night
We will think of you sleeping tight
It breaks our heart you had to go
Isobel we love you so.
