Agony of a Mother

Agony of a Mother

Months, she carried him in her womb 
And eagerly awaited 
To hold him in her arms.

But happiness stayed 
Only for a brief while
As the baby was stillborn. 

Her eyes flooded with tears,
And her voice choked in pain
Piercing her heart.

A plethora of emotions 
She swayed when she saw her
Son lay on his deathbed. 

Eventually, her womb healed, 
But the tormented soul
Never found any remedy.

Even today, after decades,
Staring at the sky, she prays
No mother should bury her child.
