A Life



A Mother missed, her love unknown. Two children left behind, feeling all alone.
A father not knowing what to do, how to cope, now he's lost you.
A sister knows just what to do, and shares the love she has for you.
The two little boys are taken in, and embraced with love.
While their mother looks down from heaven above.

It was a Pain that grew throughout the years, which at times reduced you to tears.
In the end it all became too much and in end you were taken from us
Leaving behind a bewildered boy, he would never know your love, he never shared your joy.
The other child had known your love, but did not know where you had gone.
Left wondering if it was something that he had done.

Shredded hearts can never mend, and after years the heartache must end.
So their father left to join your side, together again with his young bride.
Bereft, the boys both felt the pain. Both left wondering why this had to happen again.
Inside his mind the young boy cried with sorrow, filled with an inexplicable belief
That he could never overcome this crushing grief.

Over the years he had learned to cope, and with time began to hope.
With guidance and love from new parents who cared
He learnt so much, and enjoyed the love they shared.
The loss that always stayed in his mind, was shared with these two people
So loving and kind.

After learning so much and being guided in life
He learnt you can be truly happy, and he had a wife.
To come through so much and stand strong and true
Just proves that with love there is nothing you can't do

After thirty happy years shared with his wife
There are children and grand children too,
An abundance of love, to show for his life
But now and then he still thinks of you.

Once again his heart is torn
Another father he must mourn
There is another whose grief he shares
Another mother for whom he cares

The mother unknown who is in gods care
Seems so far away, but also so near
Is joined by her twin sister, whom at your Passing
Lost half her soul, is embraced by you
And is once again whole

And at the end of his life
Around the grave his family will stand
That little lost boy will be holding your hand.
I finally had my answer in what to do
With the ache in my heart that was always you
MY MOTHER the only person I never knew.
