My First Grief

In my cradle, My tiny body was cradled In my mothers arms. My gem among gems, I remember when I cried You comforted me with your soothing words. Your re-assuring hands Secured me till Death's Cold hands snatched you From me,a sucker I was That needed you most. Adieu! Sweet mum till We cross paths again! Written by: Ifeanyi Bob Ekechukwu
