Goodnight Said The Child.
Sophie said:

"Nothing said the child,
as something dies in your eyes,
and Mother is rocking them,
in her arms as she cries."

My heart just broke. This is absolutely painful - sadly, too many struggle and give up in silence. You poem give them a voice. Thanks for sharing.

Delayed Reviver
Sophie said:

Deep and powerful sentiment, beautifully evocative imagery -the love ( one) with the power to revive, but postponed - there is hope in the word "delayed" for time passes and brings with it fate - the gift is in embracing it when it places its hand on our chest jumpstarting the heart. Beautiful work. Looking forward to more.
