You Don’t Expect




You don’t expect to out live a child

To experience a loss that breaks your heart

All the love and protection shown

When your world has fallen apart


The ache within is unbearable

Feeling you have no way to turn

It’s an ache that will not go away

For deep within your soul will burn


Why couldn’t it have been me

A question that’s always on your mind

The helplessness that you experience

Will ease one day you will find


You will blame yourself for everything

For thinking you could have done more

You will feel the need shut yourself away

By closing the emotional door


In time the hurt will ease away

All the happy memories will return

Knowing that you did your best

As you shown great concern


If you believe in your God

Then you will know your child will be safe

For they will be loved and cherished

In a spiritual and loving place
