Go ahead

 Go ahead & mention my child,

The one that died, you know.

Don’t worry about hurting me


The depth of my pain doesn’t


Don’t worry about making me cry.

I’m already crying inside.

Help me heal be releasing

the tears I try to hide.

I’m hurting when you just keep


Pretending she didn’t exist

I’d rather you mention my child,

Knowing that she had been


You asked me how I am doing.

I say "pretty good" or "fine".

But the healing is something


I feel it will take a lifetime.
