Hi Friends,

A tragic incident in my neighborhood inspired me to write this poem on a grieving mother who lost her only child, a three-month-old daughter. My neighbor’s son and daughter-in-law lost their child to a high fever that affected the infant’s brain. I have tried to grasp the sorrow of a grieving mother.

I was simply over the moon. 
When I felt your tiny kick inside my womb. 
Little did I realize that you would leave me so soon. 
To go back and take rest inside a tiny tomb. 

The labor pain that I went through is nothing, When compared to losing you. 
I had tears of joy when I heard you crying. 
How my arms are missing cradling you! 

The cradle that once had you in its embrace, 
Is empty and searching for the princess it lost. 
Your gurgling with joy and your innocent face, 
Are what I am missing the most! 

Every time you played in my lap, 
I would keep gazing at you forever. 
Tears are flowing like water from a tap. 
When I realize my eyes would see you never. 

I miss the twinkle in your eyes 
And your toothless grin. 
Oh, What a heavy price! 
I had to pay for my sin. 

I thought of walking with you to the school. 
And watch you entering your class. 
But life made me such a fool! 
My dreams were shattered. Alas! 

The house is searching for the little princess, 
My arms are waiting to have you back. 
Why did you leave me in distress? 
My heart has already begun to crack. 

Why did life play the game of death? 
A young bud wilted before it could blossom into a flower. 
I would keep mourning until my last breath. 
Losing my sanity every hour.

  2. Beautiful Aparna. You can feel the pain and agony the mother is going through in your words. People I know who have lost children say it’s the worst kind of agony to go through. All of them say you should never have to bury a child. I can’t even fathom such pain. πŸ˜₯
