Support for a Friend

A cyber-friend of mine is experiencing the one year mark today of the loss of her little girl, which is really tough. I wanted to share the poem she posted with you. Please say an extra prayer for her to get through the day today.

I Lost My Child Today

I lost my child today

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 songs the same, as is the rhyme

I lost my child...............Today

  1. Very expressive - although many days have passed each one feels like the first. Thinking of you. cs
