Grieving Silently

by Author Unknown

Why must I grieve silently,
When my heart is so loudly screaming?
The emptiness I feel is consuming me,
Oh God, how I wish I were dreaming.

The silence around me is deafening,
For nobody knows what to say,
To comfort this agony I’m feeling,
Since my son went away.

And each day the sun continues to rise,
And the earth is still turning,
Though my world has come to a screeching halt,
No one can ease my yearning.

For a part of me has vanished,
And a part of my heart has died,
And no one can hear my heartache,
Or feel the turmoil I carry inside.

And I’ll go on grieving silently,
And exist on a different plane,
And I’ll keep my love for him deep in my heart,
Until we see each other again.

  1. Your poetry really makes me cry. My beautiful son died 5 weeks ago and my heart is so full of pain and sadness. How does a mother ever “adjust” to the loss of her heart?
    I’ve been searching the Internet for blogs and sites about losing a child, and I’ve been collecting them all on one “page” to make it simpler for me to do all my reading in one place. I’ve added your blog to this website I hope this is okay with you. More people may be able to read your blog and your poetry.


  2. Your grief is something that I have not had – my heart goes out to you as you move through your tears – somethings just seem so unfair. God bless you. I think that your blog is exceptional and will help you and other mothers. What a kindness you are giving to others. Much love.
