If




If you lost your child
would you
Want to lose your Life
Question God
Question the Fates?
Or would you just feel the pain
Let it surround and engulf you
How long would you go on this way?
Before the will to survive
Became greater than the pain you had to bear?
We think ....we can empathize and sympathize
But untill you....walk down that path...of having your loved one
Snatched away
In an accident
You will never know the hearthache ....we endure
As we go on with life

The severity of the pain is only known to those who have lost a part of themselves. Excellent piece. 10

I have four grown children. I cannot even begin to fathom what it would be like to loose one of them. So sorry for your loss. God bless you...my sister.

In science one tries to tell people, in such a way as to be understood by everyone, something that no one ever knew before. But in poetry, it's the exact opposite.

Franz Kafka (1883-1924) Czech writer.
