A Mother's Grief

Sadness and heartache 
overwhelm my body. My arms 
are heavy from the emptiness 
they feel. Where is the child I 
was to hold on this day. Why 
must I hurt in this terrible way. 

 Why must my heart be filled 
with darkness and despair. 
When will I see the light again. 
Please just hold me until that 
day is here. Please just love me 
and let me know you are near. 

I feel an emptiness that cannot 
be filled. My mind overflows 
with painful memories. I cannot 
make them go away. I fear that 
this pain is here to stay.

 Dreams that are never to be 
fulfilled. A piece of myself that 
will never be real. A loving coo 
that will never be heard. Never 
a laugh or a cry or the awaited 
first word. 

No first steps to be taken. No 
first day of school. No first time 
at bat, or catching a ball. For 
my son, there will be no firsts 
at all. 

I am lost in a grief that is all 
my own. Shedding tears for a 
life that will never be known. 
With a broken heart, full of 
sadness and fear. I love you 
sweet Matthew. Mommy will 
always be here.

    I really feel this poem and grieve with you. Having suffered the loss you encounter on a daily basis, I'd like to say it gets easier, but it really doesn't. You are in my prayers.

    Heartbreaking poetry is the order of the day here, Kristie. The anguish which poured from your pen is enough to bring tears from a grown man. Tragic!
