Name of Song: Living through the death of a child

How do you get over
the death of a child,
No matter how old,
It’s simply, they died.

What do you say
to your family and friends,
Was it somehow your fault
that they came to an end.

Loss carves a hole
that goes right to one’s core,
It brings to the surface
all the uneven scores.

Chorus
Regret and remorse,
So reactive it bleeds,
Ensnared in a vacuum
of loss and one’s needs.
To make them appear
when you know they are gone,
I describe them in music,
Immortalized through song.

Bridge
Silently pondering
and nothing to say,
Hoping for peace,
Apathy has its way.
Losing a piece
of someone so close,
Genetically bound
so it goes and it goes.

Yes they’re a spirit,
So they can’t die,
But tell that to a mother
and you’ll hear her just cry.
