When Children Die

When children die what grief is more
What sorrow measurable compares
So deep the pain that cuts us through
It changes everything we view
The golden sun has oft grown pale
And weary since their slumber came
The roses, hueless, bring no glee
When all we want is them to see

[Hata Bildir]
