I Lost My Child Today

A Poem by Netta Wilson
 As I just sat and stared, dry-eyed,
 They struggled to find words to say
 To try to make the pain go away
 I walked the floor in disbelief
 I lost my child today.
  
 I lost my child last month,
 Most of the people went away
 Some still call and some still stay
 I wait to wake up from this dream
 This can't be real, I want to scream
 Yet everything is locked inside
 God help me, I want to die
 I lost my child last month.
  
 I lost my child last year
 Now people who had come have gone
 I sit and struggle all day long
 To bear the pain so deep inside
 And now my friends just question why
 Why doesn't this mother just move on
 Just sits and sings the same old song
 Good heavens, it's been so long
 I lost my child last year.
  
 Time has not moved on for me
 The numbness it has disappeared
 My eyes have now cried many tears
 I see the look upon your face
 "She must move on and leave this place"
 Yet I am trapped right here in time,
 The song's the same, as is the rhyme
 I lost my child–today.
Dylan

At the whim of "Most Beloved" and a hot cup of tea.
I live life between, straddled here now and then,
My continuity through writing--
Pen dripping ink, mind swirling confused,
Love lingering still, and Most Beloved's purring soothes.
