The Grief Of Losing A Child

I weep for days, weeks, or longer. Tears flow quickly anyway, and the sob clinger. Crying proceeds when tears cease. I have been feeling my squat angel for weeks. I clutch sacred trust to hope against my will. I'm keen on detecting her tone and feeling her quill. People's memories are starting to wane. However, I abide on battling with fierce pain. Consistently, you actually tell me to "rest tight." You could actually toss a kiss once at night. So every time I wake up in the morning, Once again, it is my heart that is mourning. Now by gone will I be a complete person. Just proceed and hide. The agony will worsen.

Indeed, heartrending. Losing one's very own is unbearable though we try our best to forget. Beautiful writing. Congratulations!

This is indeed very sad and I hope it's fiction. To lose a child!!!!!! I dare not even think of it.

I can sense the intensity of the pain a parent feels at the loss of a child and it is poignantly depicted here. The deep heaviness one feels after having shed every drop of tear is bitter when the eyes go dry. I understand, it is fictional....yet the reader can feel it as so real. Great penning, dear friend.

Sotto, nothing could be as bad as losing a child, weep as long as it takes to see you smile. Though smiles can’t hide a broken heart, they may stop one falling apart… Blessings, Belle

Thank you so much, Belle. I appreciate your kind words and I'm glad that you like this poem with its sorrow and grief, but it's fictional writing for the contest. Best Regards and I hope hubby and you are doing well, have a great weekend.
