Sacred

by Stephanie Paige Cole

 

Your life began and

 

ended within my womb I

 

am a sacred space

 

because of you

Sacred was first published in to linger on hot coals: collected poetic works from grieving women writers

 

Stephanie’s powerful poem ‘Sacred’ has comforted bereaved mothers around the world and has been the inspiration for our film project and the advocacy work surrounding it. Although Stephanie’s poem was written in memory of her much loved daughter Madeline, who was born still in 2007, her final words “i am a sacred space because of you” continue to resonate and unite ALL mothers. It irrevocably acknowledges the special bond that is shared between mother and child that can never be broken – even following loss.
