For the motherless children

Yesterday was a special day for mothers and children alike for one is non-existent without the other. I was inspired to write this piece, though, for a child who recently lost her mom.

Un-Happy Mother’s Day

On “Happy Mother’s Day”

I try

to understand


my tears

refuse to cease;


broken-hearted, I

refuse to eat;


is a child

supposed to do


swiftly taken

from my life, you went;


I should tell

on Mother’s Day,

“I love you Mom!”


forever, now, are you?

And, is Mother’s Day

unhappy there too?
