The Day After Tomorrow

pink gerbera

Tonight I am wishing tomorrow away. It’s a day that I’m expecting to be difficult. One I never could have imagined would ever happen.

Tomorrow is the funeral of my stillborn grandson, Samuel.

Samuel’s other grandmother has arranged the day, and I know that my son needs me to be with him on the day. He needs the support of his family, to know we are there for him to lean on while his heart is breaking. To comfort him as he bids his son a final goodbye.

Life will go on, just as it should. The trees will continue to sway in the breeze and the birds will sing, assuring me that the world has not stopped spinning, yet for one small part of tomorrow, time will stand still for me. The clocks will stop ticking. I will be with my son. My heart will break for my boy.

And the day after tomorrow we will move on again. Life will begin again. The ticking of the clocks will resume. My son’s heart will mend, but there will always be a scar, a scar which he will wear with pride.

Baby Samuel will never be forgotten.

  1. Oh my. Love the tattoo. Loving and sweet memorial. Reminds him and us to not waste our time. Even the sad bits are worth it. Samuel reminded us of that.

    Just remember that there will be a day after, the day after tomorrow …

    Consider yourself warmly HUGGED. Sybil

  2. So sad, Joanne. Sending you a big hug for strength. Your son and his wife will heal and life will move on. My nephew and his wife lost their first son in the same tragic way and now they have 3 wonderful children. There is hope in a brighter tomorrow. Peace and blessings.
