Grief Loss of Child Poetry Free Verse

Grief - Title - Healing Prayer

Lend to me “Lord” your hands for me to hold.

A place for me to be free

from the grief

that's captured me.


Some nights of ideal rest

knowing I‘m still blessed

no matter what should come

to know you’re keeping care

of my beautiful son.


Offer me “Lord”

a vision of the afterlife

memories kept alive

gentle dreams to comfort my heart

for broken spirits cry in the dark.


Allow to me “Lord”

a few days without tears.

Moments I can find

to ease and calm

my anguished mind.


Hints of light to see

glimpses of joy left inside me.

Minutes without rain

or purpose for this ceaseless pain.
