Maternal Affliction

Three times a mother, factual, though agonising to accept.
You asked me where my children are, I merely wept.
You see dear, my motherhood is not one of physicality.
It is that of the heart, of the soul, spirituality.
It is true that when a child is born, crying, alive.
A mother's will is to protect it, a goal to which she will strive.
But what happens when but a faint heartbeat fails to be?
Where does that leave the almost-mother? Where does that leave me?

Didn’t have time to comment last time a looked at this Kayleigh. A very mysterious, spiritual piece of work. The mature, deep description defies the age of the writer, and the sadness with disappointment feels tangible and very real. You are a gifted writer so let’s all see more of your work on here. Take care
