The Irrepairable Loss
Author: SweetVenom


With lot of hopes packed deep in the mind,
Expecting the new arrival with fun-filled hearts,
Enjoying the gentle kicks,
I saw her being taken to the labor.

Suppressing the pain for the forth-coming joy,
Taking difficult breaths,
And even managing a smile,
She went through a terrible course.

Nine months of patience,
With proper guidance and habits,
And now the joy of being paid for it,
Could never be compared with anything in the World.

As I was waiting for the good news,
I heard a shrill cry,
That jolted and made me pry,
The loss was irrepairable.

He had come into the world,
But he never moved,
He was still-born.
Ten months of fostering,
Ten months of hopes,
Long term awaited happiness,
All went down the drain.

------- Author's Notes -------

All went fine until I wrote this poem. After few days, a close friend of mine gave birth to a still-born. Unhappy coincidence. A pre-written elegy. Am I the cause for it??
