Day 77

Dear Parents,

I know you are hurting
I see your hidden pain
Behind that half smile
The truth remains
I know your heart is broken
I know your feeling down

Life will get better
Be sure to stick around
While life hasn’t worked out to plan
There is no way to know what the future holds

For now, hold on tight
For the future will be bright
You will feel joy again
You will dance in glee
Days like this will pass
Your heart won’t always feel like a shattered piece of glass

Your child will always be there
Taking a special place in your heart
You will see the light again
There will be rainbows

Let the light in
Soak it up
For this life is precious
Only you know how true that is


A poem I wrote for all the parents that have lost a child young or old.
