She watched silently as he was taken
grieving but never uttering a cry!
She wanted to hug him
to hold him close.
She wanted him to come back
and called out a million times
but each time there was silence
growing with every moment
She hated to see him go!
but she couldn’t do anything
and it upset her even more!
She cried and cried and cried!
To whom could she tell her sorrow?
She had no one to talk to!
As they were taking him away,
her eyes, which had faded now
looked around desperately for help
all looked down and disappointed, she did too!
slowly, she walked away
shocked that her son’s life had turned out this way
Dreams of her son
seemed left undone!
Oh! How could she bear this loss!
As she saw her dead son on the cross!!!!
