Your Due Date, Two Years Later

December 16th, the day you were supposed to be born. Two years later. Your ashes sit on a shelf in our house, flanked by stars and dragons, flowers and candles. Oh my dear girl, how I long for you to be here with us, asleep under this roof with your brothers, with your parents who miss you so much. Two years ago, we gathered by the ocean with our closest family and friends and said goodbye to you, tossing flowers onto the outgoing tide. Tonight we sit inside, burn candles, are quiet. I miss you, I miss you, I miss you, my tiny love, my clear bright star.


  1. What a beautiful space she has. Sending love to you all tonight, and to your clear bright star, Chiara.

  2. The longing that never ceases... So sorry she is gone.

  3. Molly and JLD, thank you for reading. Thank you for your wishes. Your companionship through this blog means a great deal to me. Happy new year to you both. Lots of strength for the days ahead. XO
