A Mother’s Grief, Robert A. Sieczkiewicz

She stands there lifeless unable to cry
A heart so crushed it not wanting to beat
Refusing to say her final goodbye
To her child she visions as being sweet

Wishes was she to be put in the ground
But hears “Mother” from others’ needy call
Turns slowly in fear of seeing the mound
Finding no comfort from cold hardened wall

Lantern out, she sees in total darkness
Her little girl who’s afraid of the night
Reaching out but there’s nothing to caress
She cries into the pillow held so tight

From that bleak night years have now slowly passed
Undying love for her child still held fast
