A Mother's Cry

©

Published: April 2008

Colors of dark grey and black fill the world in which I live
No other feeling could possibly be worse than this
Where once was a room filled with laughter and cheer
Now stands loneliness, emptiness, and despair.

Memories of you seem to creep around the corners of my mind
Endless haunting images of your face that won't decline
An overwhelming of emotion that my body can't contain
Fills my soul with unbearable grief, sorrow, and pain

Oh, how I long to hold you in my arms just once more
And tell you that things will be again, as they were before
But, as reality sinks in, I know that will never be
For the choices that I've made in my life have sealed our destiny

No one could ever fathom how wretchedly my heart aches
And how I greatly regret that you've had to pay for my mistakes
If I could go back in time, and change only one wrong that I've done
I'd go back to the hour, to the second, on the day I lost you.
My Son.

Alone again, my child and me.
Wondering who the lucky guy is
My endless love for you is killing me
I can't find the courage to walk away
The swelling waves of pain drown me
I'm trapped in a world with too much emotion
I'm slowly dying, tortured heart inside me
Let it end,
Let it end
