A Mothers Loss

 

I’m sorry for your loss Mrs

He said with a genuine stare

She nodded at him blankly

Like he wasn’t even there

 

Last week I saw the flowers

Upon the roadside

A single rose had fallen

Like a teardrop in time

I sighed deeply

At the thought of your last ride

 

Too young by far

To leave us yet

Jobs half done

Yet he had no regrets

For in his life he done far more

than some who are old grey

 

He wishes she could feel the love

Given time she will learn

To live again

And feel the love sent

From her Son who watches over her

He will see her mend in time

Yet never quite the same again

She will never give up the shrine

so much emotion in these simple words. I love how there are many voices in this poem. The messenger, trying his best to bring such sad news with dignity, the witness to the funeral procession, the mother (I think), and the son she lost. The simplicity of the poem is perfect- it allows the grief to be experienced. Beautiful.

Gee
Any parents worst nightmare. See many of these around Milton Keynes, flowers, toys, football shirts, a sad, sad sight. Unique, have never read a poem on this topic, and very well written

Wow, a sad poem but it was a great poem. I think this is how a mother would feel if she had lost her son or daughter. Great job really felt the emotion!

Thank you for your kind words and review
Ink angel, your punctuation is perfect for this poem. Sigh, I hope, you're not writing from personal experience, about the lost of your son. For the second stanza really hit me, the hardest, with the single fallen rose. Having past so many roadside memorials, here in Canada, with the small teddy bears or bouquets of flowers, piled together. Please pardon me, as I wipe a tear or two away, from my eyes. Thank you, for sharing this poem, with us.
