The Bereaved Mother (Poem)


Do not judge the bereaved mother.

She comes in many forms.

She is breathing, but she is dying.

She may look young, but inside she has become ancient.

She smiles, but her heart sobs.

She walks,
She talks,
She cooks,
She cleans,
She works.

She IS, but she IS NOT, all at once.

She is here, but part of her is elsewhere for eternity.

So beautiful.
Exactly how I feel, present in flesh but my spirit is somewhere else.

I love this. So beautiful.
I found a piece that I couldn't believe how well it described my feelings afterwards. Id like to share;

There is, I am convinced, no picture that conveys in all it's dreadfulness, a vision of sorrow, despairing, remediless, supreme.
If I could paint such a picture, the canvas would only show a woman, looking down at her empty arms.

It just described how I felt at my lowest when I found out my baby was gone. When I felt no other person understood the pain I was feeling.

That is so much how I feel.

I also found this one:

This is natural, they say
It is all for the best
I cannot move past this heartache
This pain in my chest

Those days were surreal
Did this truly just occur
Happiness turned to sorrow
My life now a blur

This is natural, they say
I knew I was going to lose you
The most difficult emotion
There was nothing I could do

I am given no explanation
This is natural, they say
Were you pink or were you blue
My complexion is now grey

Trying to move on
A forward step everyday
I will always remember you
This is natural, they say
