Living Tomb

I'm a living tomb
my baby has died in my womb

I have to let nature take its course
Can't bear this, what could be worse?

I'm still getting many a smile
people don't know my turmoil

My baby has died
I still haven't cried
the sadness buried inside

Firat of all may I offer my condolences for your tragic situation and condition? This happened to my Aunt, several years ago. I remember her long months of sorrow. It broke my heart to see. The whole poem expresses a spirit put on hold. It made me cry. I found these words very poignant:

My baby has died
I still haven't cried
the sadness buried inside

I wish you the best and much happiness in your future.

always, Cat
