My heart is full, I cannot bear

The loss of ones no longer there

My day begins with hope and prayer

Away, the gloom of dark despair.

With those now gone, we shall compare

A memory that all may share

Tis now, by chance won’t seem unfair

We’ll carry on,  but do we dare !

 

 

 

 

A BETTER PLAN ( 2019 ) 2019/03/28

It happens every day I wake

My early morning “thankful” break

When I meet God  ’bout halfway there

And offer up a simple prayer.

There can be tears I must admit

Sometimes I  find it hard to quit

But even harder through the day

When I would rather run away.

That’s not an action worthy of

The special depths of mother love

I’ll have to learn as best I can

That God must have a better plan !

 

THOSE ASHES ( 2019 ) 2019/03/09

Hark, what is it that I now hear

The sound of sleigh bells on my ear

Their ringing sounds so ever sweet

Oh how I pray they do repeat.

The tinkling of the bells anon

Reminding all that time moves on

Twill come and go and leave behind

Those ashes of another kind !

 

WHERE IS THE END OF SADNESS ?

 

JUST CARRY ON ( 2019 ) 2019/03/06

Oh sad this time that’s now begun

Without an option, no not one,

There’ll be no babies that you’ll see

Upon your lap or on your knee.

You’ll never walk the marriage aisle

To see your daughters’  precious smile

Behind each veil the world may see

Such scenes will ever hide from thee.

We’re all so sorry you are gone

There’s no choice left but carry on !

 

FAREWELL MY CHILD (2019) 2019/02/21

I really don’t know how to hide 

This sadness that I feel inside 

I’ve tried so hard to do it right 

E’en though I’m lost, night after night. 

The ache is there and won’t subside 

And all because my child has died 

Love’s all we’ve got no matter what 

The grief remains though we may not. 

I love you now, I always will 

Until my heart at last is still ! 

 

NO REMEMBER WHEN ( 2019 ) 2019/02/07

I cannot bear this sadness

It tears my heart to bits

I need no cloak of gladness

This garment never fits.

 

There is no real contentment

I shall not rest in peace

I can’t forget resentment

Until I find release.

 

There is no happy ending

We’ll never meet again

No sense in my pretending

There’s no remember when !

 

 

THE LAST GOODBYE ( 2018 ) 2018/12/23

My heart so full I cannot bear

The fact that you will not be there

There’s no warm seat by the fireside

Or any joy I feel inside.

The chimney’s cold, no fire is lit

I am so lost where e’er I sit

However long will this pain last

What will it take before it’s passed ?

I do not know, not you nor I

Or all the angels in the sky

What occurs when a loved one dies

And there’s no way left for goodbyes !
