WHAT A GRIEVING MOTHER REALLY THINKS
Hello old friend, Oh yes you know
I lost my child a while ago.No, no please
Don't look away, and change the subject
It's ok. You see at first I couldn't feel,
It took me so long, but now it's 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, "My, she is so strong".
They did not know I couldn't 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 hear,
When I mention my child, I see their blank stare.
But I thought you were over it, Their eyes seem to say.
No, no, I can't listen to this not today.
So I smile and pretend, and say Oh, I'm ok.
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, AS I've just said to you in my heart. Close
