A Child's Death


Rock the cradle gently, careful lest it fall.
Gingerly treat with kindness and great care.
Lifetimes depend upon gentle compassion given
to a child when death is near.
Reach out through grief and make the burden
of sorrow easier to bear.

    Nice, poignant poem. A child's death is the most tragic and heart-wrenching. Reaching out in grief can certainly lessen the pain. I enjoyed reading your quiet verse. So peaceful.
