When we are faced with circumstances that cause us to shatter
We often ask out why
When a loved one is stolen, and a life is lost the why is in our cry
When the ache is near, and your joy is gone the why is in our sigh
When grief overwhelms, and words pass us by, the why is in our eye.
I am not so sure why we ask why, or what comfort it actually brings
For we feel the knowledge of knowing why, will give our break a sling
But does the knowledge really ease your pain, does it take away the sting
Does it glue together the broken heart, bring melody or make you sing
In death, I feel the why is pointless as the end result is the same
The why brings us information, but still we lost the game
The why will not change our circumstances, it’s still silent when I call his name
Why did not stop my tears, why did not soften the hurt that drove me insane
So as a grieving mother this is my advice to you, seek nothing but joy
Find purpose, find strength, find something to honor your girl or boy
Take baby steps, smile today for tomorrow sadness may toy
The why changes nothing, so please let the false hope deploy
Your journey is long, in fact my dear this road will take a life time
You will want to give up, you will want it to stop, the pain will dull and send you a life line.
Disappointment is many, days will be bleak, sit have a glass of wine
For what you think was sent to break you, was the rod to strengthen your spine
In time my dear you will go to rise and in your steps you will not stumble
The memories bring tears, but hope will remain, I promise you will not crumble
For life will teach you a strength in love, that will leave you feeling humble
Grief will have no choice but to flee, for praise will replace your grumble.
The day will come when life once more holds greater value than death
When memories and laughter, the joy they brought will take away your breath
When your smile is wide, and you beam with pride
In the acknowledgement, your are still the mother of that precious beautiful child.
