A Child Gone

A mother’s heart torn,
A child unborn.

How can this be?

From this world it was cast,
It will never have a past.

Could this happen to thee?

An innocent life taken,
A world left shaken.

How can this be?

A young story untold
Is much worse than a life lived old.

Did this happen to me?

Sadness that it entered the beyond,
Was thrown into the eternal pond.

How can this be?

Forever the mother shall shed tears,
Over her baby’s unspent years.

My child… I never shall see?

A child has been lost.
Surpassed its parents in life.
Too early from this world tossed.
Causing the world to see strife.

How can this be…?
