A Childless Mother
A childless mother wanders alone,
In the silence around her, her thoughts start to roam
Christmas is coming, his second in Heaven
Will I feel any better when it's five, when it's seven?
This childless mother won't hide gifts in her shed,
She'll just take flowers up to his forever bed.
A childless mother, what use is she now?
She must pick up the pieces, carry on somehow.
She's come so far, yet she's back at the start,
Her world is still shattered, and so is her heart.
A childless mother, still feeling despair
Must keep going, hoping to "get there"
Scared for the future, clinging to hope
Still finding her way, struggling to cope.
A childless mother wipes tears from her eyes,
Outside she's smiling, but inside she dies.
