SLR

My child

You don't know,

But how could you?

You don't have a clue,

But that's just you.

You look into my eyes

My mind goes blank.

Only you remain.

 

Your pain, your tears,

Rips my soul from me.

 

I feel broken.

 

But no, wait,

I'm the most blessed.

 

You need me.

 

No meaning before you,

Only petty be-ing.

No reality with you,

Life is a dream.

If only you knew,

So please take care.

You are my heart,

No life without you, child.

    I CAN DEFINITLY RELATE TO THIS.IT BROUGHT ME BCK TO WHEN I HAD A MISCARRIAGE.SAD BUT MEMORABLE.THANK YOU.

      I wasn't really sad when I wrote it. More that I was wanting to express the depth of my love for my kids. I'm so sorry for your loss.

        I understand what you mean,I have my Nelly,but i was meaning that it also made me think of the one that I lost,and how much I loved that child as well.

          Thank you. That's so nice of you to say. There are a few that I've done that I feel are good. I'm glad that you've enjoyed some of my work. Especially someone that I've enjoyed so much of their work too. I always look forward to reading your work.

          Some great imagery about the love for our children. Inspred me to try and explain it myself. Jealous of your walks by 'the lakes'.

            The woods and the lake help me keep what's left of my sanity. (It's hanging by a thread at times) Thank you for your nice comment!
