Eclipse

by Noelle Haland
Mommy to Ethan Theodore, s/b Dec 2, 1996 at 31 weeks
and "little bean" due Nov 7, 1997

Dedicated to my son, Ethan Theodore Haland, who died in the womb at 31 weeks and was born still December 2, 1996. We love and miss you little boy!

"Eclipse"

Only a tiny sliver of light remains
the rest is in shadow
the glory of bright happiness
eclipsed by my shadow of grief.
Your face is obscured.
I know you're there, son,
but I can barely make you out.
This eclipse will take a lifetime.

---- Written March 23, 1997 during the last lunar eclipse in the Western Hemisphere in this millennium.
