You Are Not Alone
By: Emily Hughes

While your heart is truly breaking,
And the dark is closing in,
While your arms are plainly aching,
I know the place where you have been.

I know that empty feeling,
The milk that none will drink,
The scars that bring no healing,
The “what if’s” that make you think.

I’ve walked the path you’re treading,
I’ve begged for my childs return,
I’ve lived the due date you are dreading,
I’ve had reminders that make me burn.

So while you are deep in grief,
While you cry at night on your own,
Let it bring you some small relief,
That you are not alone.
