Also a Mother

Post by Mich on Wed 12 Nov 2008 - 11:01

Hi all.
I wrote this poem a while back, its a short 'story' of my experience. it's put together a bit roughly ...but you get the idea... i remembered it after reading Mpums poem 'Silent Footprints' cause the one sentance is "I'll always be your mother. He'll always be your dad." anyways, thought i'd share it, hope it's not too depressing..

Also a Mother

It seemed a good day and that everything was fine.
I did my daily dreaming as I was speaking,
speaking about the joy of my life.
too busy to have realized...

And so later that night I could feel
that something wasn't right, and i started to fight.
"Lord please dont pass me by", i said.
I was feeling scared as i sat in bed.
I prayed and sang and moved about
waiting for the hours to bring back the light.

Morning finally arrived, my concern growing stronger.
I could not wait a minute longer.
In the doctors room, i looked at the screen.
I knew then i had lost my dream.
Then the words confirmed: "Im sorry but your baby is dead"
A million thoughts went through my head.

my son, my very first child,
didnt even get the chance to live his life.
I only saw his face once then i had to say good bye.
I have to stop myself from asking why.

Now a part of me is gone forever.
I am living with a space, a space that should have been my child.
Now the pain is deep but i need to go on.
I need to be strong as the journey is long.

Some days i smile, others are harder.
But all I'm asking, is that you'll remember.
Remember that I am also, also a mother...

The South African Society for Poetry like any other publication site aims to be family friendly and allow thousands to freely publish their poetry. However, as South Africa is a country that is totally democratic and always works within the margins of the Constitution, there are a few rules. The Poetry Society will publish all poetry the first time and will also review all the poetry published. All poetry will be published in all poetry competitions that the South African Internet Society for Poetry has agreements with. However, certain poetry competitions require an entry donation.

N.B. When publishing poetry please keep in mind that some people are sensitive to certain issues. Make sure that your poem does not contain any hate speech or fowl language.

If you have not yet become a member to the hippest site in South Africa simply register now, quickly, freely and simply.

The web address is http://poetry.saisp.net/index.php

should I go ahead?>>??
