A cold February day
A wedding day
In the back sits a 9 year old boy
His tenth birthday in 5 days
His loving mum with him
Two days ago, fifty four
Sharing the anticipation
Of a time of great joy.
Then the wedding
They first one the boy had seen
But the joining of people in love.
And then the reception.
Mother enjoying herself
As her son plays nearby
Neither, yet aware of the shock,
That would break both their hearts.
And as she danced
She fell, life drifting away
By a weakness in her loving heart
The young boy cries out, “Mum!”
But he is much too late.
She's gone like a blade of grass
Too shocked to even shed a tear,
He leaves her there, alone
Going back home to dad.
“Will Mummy come?”
The young boy asks in his confusion.
Silence reigns in the car
No-one knows how to say
The hard words, “She’s gone now”
“You must learn to live without her”
Life has changed forever.
