Rocking Child Left Behind

Wretchedness in life
Can contort us  
Into fetal positions  
Never knew existed  
Torrents of tears  
From swollen eyes  
Eventual numbness  
Anger, host of emotions
Before can again  
Breathe normal  
You and the rocking  
Child left behind  
Bewildered, asking why  
In the throes of such  
Unimaginable pain  
Please accept  
Outstretched jestures  
Of kindness  
Attempts at relieving  
Your pain  
Even if only in spirit  
From those near or far  
A friend, family member  
Or complete stranger  
Find comfort  
During wee hours  
Days yet to endure  
Be selfish  
Take, keep close  
Till normalcy  
Begins to return  
And you can  
Walk upright  
Forward again  
 
Dedicated to  
Inspired by  
vrc and the  
Rocking twin  
Left behind

Yesterday morning on Facebook, I happened upon a sorrowful poem written by a mother of 8-year-old twins. At the age of 17 and a 1/2, a child herself, one of the twins passed into the "Land of Nod " she stated.

With a stab to my heart and tears in my eyes, the very first thing on a Friday early morning to cross my eyes, I started to write to reach out. However, being the poetess that I am, it turned into a poem.

I have been given permission to not post her name, but instead use her initials.
