Poems You Can Relate To

5 Nov

I’ve never been a huge poetry person. But once in a while you come across a poem that really hits home.

That happened to me this week. This poem, written by Andrea Hill, spoke to me deep within the depths of my soul. It speaks about losing a daughter, and having another daughter you hope never has to experience such a loss. I’ve tweaked it just a tad to reflect my life.

I BURIED MY DAUGHTER TODAY
by Andrea Hill

I buried my daughter today, my soul burns red with pain. No longer will I touch her face or caress her skin again.

I buried my daughter today, God what have I done wrong to have her stolen from my arms, when my faith in you was strong?

I buried my daughter today, thank God I have another. I couldn’t walk this path alone, every breath is a struggle.

I buried my daughter today, she was just a bit past twenty. Searing, ripping, tearing ache, my emotions overcome me.

My other will someday be a mother, to God above I pray, these words by her not repeated, I buried my daughter today.
