A Mother’s grief

By 16th October 2009December 9th, 2019No Comments

Who understands a mother’s grief?
Weeping through indifferent night
Her child lost in eternal sleep

The answers that she has to seek
And comfort she is yet to find
Who understands a mother’s grief?

Questions dripping like a leak
Blinded by what’s out of sight
Her child lost in eternal sleep

The lessons that she has to teach
In the shade behind the light
Who understands a mother’s grief?

Her love, she feels, is out of reach
To carry on, an endless fight
Her child lost in eternal sleep

Death crept in. a heartless thief
Stole away her joy and pride
Who understands a mother’s grief?
Her child lost in eternal sleep
