Ask my Mom how She is - Poem

I Thought That Time Was Healing


(Grief Poems – Loss Of A Child)

I thought that time was healing
all the hurt you left behind –
That empty spaces could be filled
my arms, my heart, my mind.

And though my body looks the same
as it did when you were here –
The emptiness is growing
even bigger with each year.

I thought that time was healing
all the agonizing pain –
That as the tears were fading,
soon I wouldn’t feel the same.

And though I can be smiling
and you think that I’ll survive –
The pain is in my blood now
I have nowhere else to hide.

I thought that time was healing
all the loss a mother feels –
That now you live within my heart
I had you near me still.

But I need so much to touch you
to see you smile again –
And those memories I’m told are mine
can never feel the same.

I thought that time was healing
all the while the mask was worn –
That underneath a new me
was waiting to be born.

But now I find I am the mask
it helps to keep me safe –
And though my heart is breaking,
you won’t see it in my face.

I thought that time was healing
all those tears my eyes have seen –
That aching arms that miss you
could be satisfied with dreams.

But here I am, in pain again
and healing stands alone –
A mother weeps, the world can see
for a child who can’t come home.

I Lost My Child Today – Grief Poems – Loss Of A Child

I Lost My Child Today

(Grief Poems – Loss Of A Child)

People came to weep and cry

As I just sat and stared, dry eyed.

They struggled to find words to say

To try and make the pain go away.

I walked the floor in disbelief.

I lost my child today.

I lost my child last month.

Most of the people went away.

Some still call and some still stay.

I wait to wake up from this dream;

This can’t be real … I want to scream!

Yet everything is locked inside.

God, help me, I want to die.

I lost my child last month.

I lost my child last year.

Now people who had came, have gone.

I sit and struggle all day long,

To bear the pain so deep inside.

And now my friends just question, Why?

Why does this mother not move on?

Just sits and sings the same old song.

Good heavens, it has been so long.

I lost my child last year.

Time has not moved on for me.

The numbness it has disappeared.

My eyes have now cried many tears.

I see the look upon your face,

“She must move on and leave this place.”

Yet I am trapped right here in time,

The song is the same, as is the rhyme,

I lost my child … Today.

Mention My Child | Grief Loss Of A Child Poems

Mention My Child
(Grief Poems – Loss Of A Child)

Go ahead and mention my child,
the one who died, you know ..
Don’t worry about hurting me further
the depth of my pain doesn’t show.

Don’t worry about making me cry
I’m already crying inside ..
Help me to heal by releasing
the tears that I try to hide.

I’m hurt when you just keep silent
pretending he didn’t exist ..
I’d rather you mention my child
knowing that he has been missed.

You asked me how I was doing.
I say “pretty good” or “fine.” ..
But healing is something ongoing
I feel it will take a lifetime.
