Mother’s Day - Incomplete

Again, Mother’s Day arrived.
Don’t know how past occasions I survived?

Others say, “Be thankful you still have two.”
Those who identify with child loss are few!

It is not the number of children that counts,
Nor is grief determined by scales or amounts.

Although Mother's Day is a reminder of all the love
That a mother shares with her child in heaven above,

It still triggers a lot of sorrow and pain,
And the suffering that a mother for life will sustain.

Her joy on Mother’s Day will always be incomplete
As her child is not there to wish her, and the day greet.

Habibti Randah,
How honest, real and transparent your feelings are.
And it is true that your mother's day is incomplete.
The only compensation is that Samar's spirit
is always there and she dwells in God's eternal
heavens (inshallah) and in your heart.
Much love
