You Will Heal

Words of advice like
“You will heal”
To a grieving mother
are so unreal.
Is her heart
made of steel?
Or of layers
that she can peel?
Grief to mothers
is like a spinning wheel.
No one can appreciate the pain
she feels
Or the agony
that is felt and she conceal.
Do not advise a grieving mother
I appeal
And tell her that one day
“You will heal.”
