What a Grieving Mother Really Thinks

What a Grieving Mother Really Thinks


Hello old friend,
Oh yes you know
I lost my child a while ago.
No, no please
Donít look away
And change the subject
Itís ok.
You see at first I couldnít feel,
It took so long, but now itís real.
I hurt so much inside you see
I need to talk,
Come sit with me?
You see, I was numb for so very long,
And people said, ďMy, She is so strong.Ē
They did not know I couldnít feel,
My broken heart made all unreal.
But then one day, as I awoke
I clutched my chest, began to choke,
Such a scream, such a wail,
Broke from me..
My child! My child!
The horror of reality.
But everyone has moved on, you see,
everyone except for me.
Now, when I need friends most of all,
Between us there now stands a wall.
My pain is more than they can bear,
When I mention my child,
I see their blank stare.
ďBut I thought you were over it,Ē
Their eyes seem to say,
No, no, I canít listen to this, not today.
So I smile and pretend, and say, ďOh, Iím okĒ.
But inside I am crying, as I turn away.
And so my old friend, I shall paint on a smile,
As I have from the start,
You never knowing all the while,
All Iíve just said to you in my heart.
