small bump ed sheeran

Don't vs Chandelier
Ed Sheeran vs Sia

Ed Sheeran and Sia are two of the biggest artists in the world at the moment but considering how different their styles are I don’t think you’d ever expect them to work this well when combined. However Sia’s powerful backing music combined with Ed Sheeran’s soothing vocal make this mashup something great and unexpected in a really good way - Jakk

Music Series: Small Bump by Ed Sheeran (trigger warning)

I’ve held on to this request for awhile because of the nature of it, and because it hits close to home for me personally. Several years ago I lost a child and it’s something you always have with you. But, music and writing have been therapeutic for me for as long as I can remember, so I thought if there is any possibility that a story about this subject, or even introducing this song to someone who may have never heard it, could help someone going through the same situation, then I can write it.

So with a trigger warning attached, this is Ed Sheeran’s, “Small Bump”. It’s really a beautifully sad song, and I hope someone can benefit from my sharing it. Thank you to the Anon who requested.

You can hear Ed’s song on Spotify, HERE.



Trigger warning: child loss/miscarriage


You’re just a small bump unborn, in four months you’re brought to life,

You might be left with my hair, but you’ll have your mother’s eyes,

I’ll hold your body in my hands, be as gentle as I can,

But for now you’re scan of my unmade plans,

A small bump in four months you’re brought to life

Harry sat nervously in the waiting room at the hospital, tapping his knee up and down quickly waiting for…anything.

When you told him you weren’t feeling well, he automatically had red flags. You hadn’t even dealt with much morning sickness during these first few months of pregnancy, and you weren’t a complainer by nature. So for you to offer an unsolicited warning, Harry was on guard.

“Maybe we should call the doctor,” he said.

“But it’s a Sunday. He isn’t in the office,” you replied, not wanting to disrupt anyone’s weekend.

“Then…hospital,” he nodded. “We should go to the hospital, don’t you think? Just to be safe.”

“I don’t know,” you said, wiping a tear as your voice trailed upward, anxious and not well and…scared.

“Come on,” Harry said, standing. “I’m not asking now. I’m taking you. Something isn’t right.”

I’ll whisper quietly, I’ll give you nothing but truth,

If you’re not inside me, I’ll put my future in you

You are my one and only.

You can wrap your fingers round my thumb and hold me tight.

Oh, you are my one and only.

You can wrap your fingers round my thumb and hold me tight.

And you’ll be alright.

“Harry…” you said as you laid back in the passenger seat, holding his hand, as he drove as quickly but safely as possible.

“We’re almost there, love,” he said, looking at your pale face. You felt his thumb stroking the back of your hand quickly, as you squeezed his hand tightly with pain. He looked at you, sweat forming on his upper lip.

And now, only minutes later, he found himself sitting alone in a private waiting room, biting the skin around his nails and alternating between pacing and sitting with his face in his hands.

Oh, you’re just a small bump unknown, you’ll grow into your skin.

With a smile like hers and a dimple beneath your chin.

Finger nails the size of a half grain of rice,

And eyelids closed to be soon opened wide

A small bump, in four months you’ll open your eyes.

“Can you please tell me how she is? How the baby is? I’m losing my mind in there!” Harry begged the nurse at the station outside of his room.

“I’m sorry, sir, but I will try and see if I can find anything out for you,” she responded politely.

Harry returned to his room, texting his family and a couple of others to let them know what was happening. Harry stood and walked to the window, looking out while taking a deep breath. Had the world not stopped around him over the past hour? He was sure it had, but the bustling traffic and people on the sidewalks below begged to differ.

As Harry heard the door open, and saw a doctor walk to him with a frown and apologetic handshake, Harry knew. He was thankful you would be okay and could still have children, but he had so been looking forward to the birth of his firstborn. He knew you were going to be devastated.

After the doctor explained to him what happened, Harry’s only question was obvious.

“May I please go be with her?”

And you can lie with me,

With your tiny feet

When you’re half asleep,

I’ll leave you be.

Right in front of me

For a couple weeks

So I can keep you safe.

Harry took a deep breath before pushing the door to the room open, seeing you lying in the bed, in less pain than before but crying into your hand, as your other hand lay on top of your obviously less swollen stomach.

Harry placed his hand on top of yours and leaned to tuck his face next to your cheek, kissing you as his tears fell on your pillow next to yours.

“We’ll be okay, baby,” he whispered in your ear. “We have each other, and as soon as the doctor says it’s okay to try again, we will.” He felt you nod against his head and hold you tightly.

Your breath caught again as you cried, unbelieving that your child was gone.

“How is it just not there anymore?” you wept. “This morning we were laughing and talking to it, and now it’s not there! What did I do wrong?”

“Sweetheart, you did everything right!” Harry sniffed, reassuring you, pressing his forehead against your temple and kissing the side of your dampened face. “It’s just like the doctor said, love. Sometimes these things happen unexpectedly and without reason or cause, at no fault to anyone. It just happens, unfortunately. I’m so sorry, babe.”

Harry comforted you as the staff helped you prepare to leave to return to your home. On the drive home, you were a bit relieved you had not yet even started working on the nursery. You didn’t think you could possibly handle seeing that right now.

That night Harry held you all night long as you slept, kissing and comforting you when your body would tremble with a silent cry. In only the few months you were pregnant, you had both already loved that child with every ounce of your being. You tried to rationalize the why, but you had each other, and you would survive together. Harry loved you, and you loved Harry, and you loved all the children yet to be created together.

‘Cause you are my one and only.

You can wrap your fingers round my thumb and hold me tight.

You are my one and only.

You can wrap your fingers round my thumb and hold me tight.

And you’ll be alright.

'Cause you were just a small bump unborn for four months then torn from life.

Maybe you were needed up there but we’re still unaware as why.

I got the title from ‘Small Bump’ by Ed Sheeran but I didn’t really base this imagine around the actual song, so this is not a song fic.
