Sacred Heartbeat (poem)

The echo of the tears upon her face

That smile which bore the passage of the years

Who knows the empty silence that she hears

Whose heart beats hope a long lost song replace


Whose arms can offer shelter from her fears

Who offers love across this mystic space

That time which only she now can retrace

The memories resistant to her shears


Oh mother bare what we should never see

A sacred heartbeat none can ever share

These echoes of a fate we hold reviled


Oh mother air how could this ever be

A sacred heartbeat now no longer there

For she now wears the death of her own child

Very touching and moving poem! I was reminded of Mary, the mother of Jesus, how she watched her son beaten beyond recognition and then hung on a cross to die slowly.

God bless!

This is a beautiful poem referring to the Blessed Mary and gorgeous music video at the top. This poem could also represent the loss of dear children for mothers everywhere. Up and beautiful.
