A Mother's Anguish - Poem by Eloida Capuno

she was agonizing
for a child she lost
i told her i can feel
her pain
but the truth is
i wasn't sure

a mother's pain is
i believe that more
than words can say
the wound is deeper
more profound
because that child is
from her womb
nurtured through the
a part of her she can't
let go

now i think i understand
the grief a mother holds
for a lost child
more than the wailing
and the tears
is emptiness untold
