The Size Of An Apricot


“About the size of an apricot”

That’s all I could bear to read about you

But at some point I will be brave

I want to know everything about you

And the life you had

I want to understand the little miracle

That I carried within

An apricot is not very big

But you are the biggest event in my life

Your brief time will last forever

Safe within my heart

    1. Aaaw Kristian – I wrote it when I had lots of tears too. There is another poem I have written…I think I have scheduled it to be published in a few days time – I was proper sobbing throughout. But it was helpful to have the quiet time alone to be able to express my feelings in these little ditties before I had to be back at work and with friends putting a brave face on.

    1. I wish I could suggest the perfect words or gesture – but I can’t. I was glad to have a few days of quiet on my own before I had to be back at work. I have chosen not to tell a lot of people, but those who do know have been very lovely and sweet. Just knowing that others feel for you, are empathetic – even if they have not been through the same – and are happy to be gentle with you while you recover from what is a huge and painful disappointment.


  1. Hugs my darling girl. Hugs. I am going on almost 30 years and every anniversary I cry myself to sleep. T wonders about her and I tell him she is looking out for him. It does ease any time you need to talk I am here.
