Some years have passed 
and you still cry!
You’re not the only mother,
whose daughter
did prematurely die.
Hide your tears for the sake
of your loved ones,
at the very least, try.
Why are you silent?
You don’t have a reply?

“What should I say?
words can’t easily fly.
If you knew
how losing a child feels,
you won’t ask why.
It’s the most painful loss,
no one can deny.
You want me to pretend
to be happy, perform and lie,
wrap up my feelings
and strap them with a tie,
when my silent cries
reach as far as the sky.
Sorrow is something
I didn’t ask for, nor buy.
It just came to me.
Do you still want to ask
why I still cry?”
