Earth to earth

What do you wear on the day of your son’s burial? He is so tiny, we are burying him in the backyard.  Tomorrow, we will buy bulbs and plant them around his little grave.  One week ago, he was in my body, every moment nourished and cared for.  Every kick and flutter a moment of joy.  Even the nausea, which eventually left was welcomed.  He was our baby.  And today, we return him to the earth.
