Feeling her helplessness
She lay there, Staring at the innocent looking bear.
Crying tears of hopelessness
She lay there, Avoiding her own reflecting stare.
Days have passed,everything she lost
Hoping it would last, Days have passed.
Empty she felt, letting her mind rest.
Looking at the beautiful mittens, she had once knit
Wondering who would it know fit.
Empty she felt,letting her mind rest.
If only he knew how much she needed him
Hollow her womb was , yet filled with sorrow her heart was
Never would she forget him
Remembering her very own flaws
Never had she dreamed
With nothing but regret,she will never forget
Few months back, so easy it all seemed
Forever would remain this empty bassinet.
