Request (After a Miscarriage) by Rabbi Rachel Barenblat

Source of all that is
source of mercy
planter of seeds
in rocky soil

You whose names
are womb
and breast
and giver of milk

protect everyone
who aims imperfectly
to emulate 
your loving care

guard everyone
who opens her body
and prays
for possibility 

grant us compassion
when our bodies fail us
and help us try
again, and again

remind us
that deep down
something new waits
always to grow.
