A Mother's Crossroad

"A Mother's Crossroad" staring at the tiny white casket tears cascading as raindrops fell sorrow surrounds my heart holding blue basket with his favorite toys crying with toll of funeral bell. though grief usurped my saddened soul mourning a loss precious and dear one memorable moment in time made whole for a Mother's crossroad was drawin g near. emotions swallowed my life that fateful day no purpose seemed clear to live or exist searching for answers; uttered words to pray breathing had vanished inside Death's Mist. should I fade into the Past? should I retrieve from pain? should I deny my family, at last, to cease to be? what would I gain? to bury a child hurts so very deep yet change always makes Life turn as the human heart avows to weep for forging forward was my concern. a Mother's crossroad healed within while memories lingered of a sweet son who gave me strength to seek to win choosing a path toward a golden Sun. *For Gail Angel Doyle's Standing At A Crossroads Contest. *Written by: Linda-Marie The "Sweetheart" of P.S. *Oct. 31, 2012.

    Reading your poems about J.J. always touch me deeply-- I can only imagine the grief that tore through you...your love for him is evident in your writes, Linda. I find mothers like you who have lost their children so strong. I hope you and Ron and the rest of your family continue to be safe... I can imagine how Sandy was in your area...hugs to you.

    Extremely moving. The poem has come from the heart and is bound to touch hearts. My sympathies Linda. About a year ago my surrogate son, a young man of 26, died in a road accident widowing his young pregnant wife. I have no words to describe my pain. Now his wife has a 10 months old dauhter gone after her father in appearance. I am carrying on my soul the grief of that girl. This is what life is. Thanks for your congratulatory message on my Poem Make Me Sleep. -Mohammad
