While May hosts Memorial Day, for those who have gone through a miscarriage or infant loss, almost every day is memorial day for what was and what should have been.
If you would like to have a date in May memorialized on The Maternal Heart’s Essence, please submit your information to the email on the About page of the site. Also, a note of reflection and remembrance for those already listed would certainly be appreciated.
The wind is tossing the lilacs,
The new leaves laugh in the sun,
And the petals fall on the orchard wall,
But for me the spring is done.
Beneath the apple blossoms
I go a wintry way,
For love that smiled in April
Is false to me in May.
– Sara Teasdale, May
