In Memory !

A tortured heart beats within,
This orphaned mother with the thick skin,
A life so short, so sweet and true,
Taken away never,
To recover from the loss of you!

Years and years pass by,
Yet a vision of you,
Remains constant in my minds eye,
Forever young you will always be,
An innocent child always to me!

Regrets of special moments lost,
Of birthdays and life goals crossed,
Even the mundane strife of daily life
Of meeting  loving and knowing your kin
My tortured heart continues,beating within!


  1. this is def a heavy one...the loss of a hard...

  2. Forever Young, they shall stay.
    Sad. So sad, the loss of a young one.
    All one can do, is cope.
    Your piece 'moves' me.

  3. sad loss, well done emotions,

  4. 'Age shall not wither them
    nor the years condemn.
    We shall remember them.'

    Beautifully done.

  5. Hopefully you'll find acceptance and finally a little peace. Nicely written.

  6. best wishes,

    you deserve the best.

  7. The loss of a child is one of the deepest of sadnesses.
