Resources for Loss

"Dad Poem" by Joshua Bennett, contributed by Libby Tseng (2021)

In "Dad Poem" by Joshua Bennett, an expectant father loses the opportunity to witness the first sonogram of his unborn son as a result of COVID-19 restrictions. The sense of isolation, despair, and loss that is encapsulated in the poem will resonate with any person who has been affected by the COVID-19 Pandemic. Despite these saddening undertones, the poem also offers a gentle reminder that even during these challenging times new life and new hope cannot be completely stifled.
