Grieving

Give me time, give me time,
I've lost a special boy of mine.

Days and crowds rush past,
but I want to be last.

Leave me crying on the ground,
there's no remedy to be found.

The last words were spoken,
and so my heart is broken.

There's pain and there's shock,
all my emotions unlocked.

A huge part of my life is gone,
and everything seems wrong.

I miss his hug, I miss his smile.
My heart bleeding all the while.

I can't laugh at your jokes,
please don't try to coax.

Someday I'll pick up the pace,
be back in the rat race.

But give me time, give me time.
I've lost a very special boy of mine.



I wrote this poem shortly after my son died. It describes how I felt at the time.
