A Lonely Walk

by Raynell Bailey

My heart, it breaks
but it seems no one wants to hear
My memories flood me
with things I'd like to share
some family and friends are too uncomfortable
do they really just not care
Their life it is too full
to walk this path of grief
'Twill surely steal your joy
this deadly, stalking thief
Feel my pain
Feel my hurt
let me share this grief
Impatience is showing on their face
"It's been enough time" so they move on
Truth is-it's them that nees their space
This Mother's heart is broken
'twill never be the same
thoughts soar around me

like the day we chose his name
First steps,first words
soft sweet chubby cheeks
"I Love You Mother"
Treasured words never again to hear
him speak

For my beautiful Bryon from mother

mothers pain of losing a child is like no other. I am in so much heartache 3 months after losing my 14 yr old special need angel boy. Even though we knew this since his birth I cannot stop thinking about him & wanting to have him back.
Lets find the few people who would listen! wish you strength!!

move on...

Yesterday my brother said "Paul would want you to move on"....Move on?!! I can't think, see nor breathe. Each day that passes is like a test of courage from within I don't feel I have. I try to see the beauty and make his love a fond memory. And "Move on" But I am stuck in sorrow as are you. Keep company with other mourners, because only we understand. How could they? they lost their keys, not their Love. HH
