A Memorial

All you others out there, I know you know what I mean. (holding hands in silence)

October Garden

Three little rosebuds
Will never yet flower
Little beads of raw green grief
A memorial made by other hands

I know of more, many more
Too many
Perhaps you flowered somewhere else?

Little flame-shaped buds
Inverted tears, candle-hot
A thousand, million flickering lights
Out of sight, lost

  1. Beautiful Sarah. Thinking of you, your own precious angels, and also all the other mums who have a space where their little babes should be and feeling truly humbled :(


Penny for your thoughts? :)
