Artist's Description

23 Months

A mother’s tears can never dry
pain that gets that deep, finds no relief
and sorrow governs the heart
the depth of which, evident in her eyes

Mind in turmoil, life shall be
Lest to awake from sleep
once more only
for a spirit to weep
eternally in grief
at the loss too great
to find future joy
with the death of a boy

Walking in shadows
All held in despair
In her arms, long ago
he did once dwell there

Near a year, all to soon,
cruel fatality tore him away
forever to stay
So it seems
forever and a day

Only in death, can reunite
A mother with her lost hopes, her spirit, and her life
Only in death, can she cradle her child
And in his eyes, her love doth shine once more, so bright
