My body so heavy, I dare not move a muscle.
I feel petrified, my screams are all I have left.
Crying out for the one person that can soothe my fears.
She’s no longer there, no rescue today.
I wake, it was all a dream…I slowly pull myself from bed,
Only to realize, she’s really gone and I’m alone in the dark.
No matter the age a child becomes,
Mothers’ will always be our refuge.
