A mother's tears

A mother's tears

A Poem by Coyote Poetry
"

When a life is lost in war. Someone is heart broken somewhere.

"

                                     


 


                             A mother's tears


There is nothing as beautiful as a mother and a child.

I watched a mother holding and singing to her baby.

"I love you my baby. No-one will hurt you.

Mama will buy a soft little bed to rest your small body."



Can we see beyond the color of the skin?

Will we hate because their religion is not same as ours?

Will we close our eyes to help someone in need

because the pain isn't ours to feel?



The mother looked out a window. She see a dirty city.

So many helpless people with no place to go.

She bring her baby closer and kisses her baby head.

She sings "I love you my sweet baby,

I pray for the day when the world is safe for you.

Everyone had a fair chance."



The rain drops are acid rain.

Violence is a normal thing in this world.



 Another soldier die.

Somewhere tears are falling for the soldier.

He was someone son who mother's tears will never stop.



























A young woman prayed.

"God, protect my baby for the world is cold and heartless.

keep my baby safe from the hate and violence.

Please lord of life and death allow my child to grow strong

and have a fair chance at a good life.

Lord keep my baby safe for she is my world
and I would empty and alone without her
."


 Tears falls from the young woman eyes.

The view from her window of a world falling apart.

She knew her tears for her baby has just began.

We need a world where people are safe and we don't sent our children to war at eighteen to learn death before love and life possibilities.

A young man here in N. Michigan was just 18 and died in Afghanistan. I live by the airport and learned his motorcade was going down my road.. I took my 17 year old son out there and we waited for them.. The faces, the tears, and the length of that procession was heart wrenching.. I cried for them all.. I so agree with you that they don't get a chance to learn life before they are hit with death..xxx Great write... and thank you for sharing..x

great poem coyote, what you say is true, but sadly people in this world dont care enough to vote and do their part to get right leaders in power to give us this world where we can be safe. Instead dirty politicians are put in power, and all they do with that power is enlarge their paychecks while we citizens are stuck losing more money making more sacrifices and giving up so many things because of money. If only enough people cared like you and me do, then maybe this world would be safe, but sadly thats not the case here. Great poem showing a mothers love for her children and also conveying what i just explained.

Strong well written poem, it brings tears to my eyes, a world of safety, peace and love would be great for our children. God is trying to wake us up with everything thats going on. A mother's love is a great feeling!

Coyote, I love reading you. From the very moment I begin, I just can't take my eyes away until the last word is read. So much respect for life is apparent through this piece and your others as well. Any loss of life is bitter, but especially so with a child... The last three lines say it all... Very touching and worthwhile read.

This has a beautiful soul behind every word.
Seldom do we see war causalities for what they really are,
someones world, taken away before their time.
Wonderful read!
