The Loss Of A Child
It’s hard to accept losing a child
Why wasn’t it me,
Life is too short as it is
I don’t agree that it's our destiny.
Each day we continue on with our daily tasks
Coping until there is a reminder
Of their birthday or first date,
Why do I ponder?
Leaning on people is not my fancy
although tormenting myself is a sin
I hope a day will come, in time,
That I can hurdle my grief from within.
When you grieve the loss of a child
It’s never in the natural order of things,
For a child to die before his/her parents
The nightmare never ends, it’s not dwindling.
As the reality of the death settles in
Intense anger at the thought,
Deep anguish that the loss is forever
God help me with the peace I have sought.
The grief may fade with time
I feel it will never end,
Lost to the grim specter of death
I lost a part of myself; I lost a friend.
Nothing in this world remains permanent. Something comes and something goes. One such is death. It's inevitable. So do joys and sorrows. Everyone grows through this painful and happy moments. No one escapes from this fact. When pondered over it that's nothing but the relations, love and cares build up. It may be between humans or between animals or with humans and animals.
During my childhood something similar occured with me and my little eared-owl that died unexpectedly by swallowing a long rope in my absence and thus leaving only memories.
But can still be happy accepting the fact that something joyful moment will come again.
This is about 96 Liverpool football, that was crushed to death when too many fans were let through into the stand by the police it happened a long time ago and finally justice was done when a court said it was not the fans fault but the police and others I am a very proud Liverpool football fan and to all the family's who lost someone you did it and beat them.
