A Mother With No Child

It's the saddest story you will ever hear
Tragedies, can't even come near
It's about a lonely woman with no child
She wanted one to make her life go wild
A young lively kid who brings trouble
Average would be fine, even double
She wants to bear a child so badly 
Never ever will she have one, sadly
All the kids and parents have such joy
Their bonds are always ready to employ
She cares for all kids, like a mother
As if they were her own, not another
But she never felt the parenting bond
Of that, she's not quite fond
Blames herself for all the mistakes
Never knew life will sour her cakes
She goes mad day after day
When will her kid ever come to play?
Will she ever break out of this sorrow?
Will there be a brighter tomorrow?
Waiting for her eternal dream 
A ray of hope to fall, a beam
Some miracle to coincide
So she is no longer, the mother with no child

    Wow Ali Gail is right...you are very talented. Powerful writing. I have a friend who dealt w/ infertility for many years and it was hard on her. I hope you get your child soon.

    Thanks, although the poem isn't about me though. I'm a guy and still a college student but i can understand the pain of not bearing a child, i can see the painful expression on a woman's face specifically because being a mother is too special for her.
