Alone In Grief, Alone In Thought, Alone - Poem by Emmanuel George Cefai

[The Pieta’]

alone in grief, alone in thought, alone
the mother stood, the mother wept,
small, silent, tearless tears at the brim
that never came:
The Pieta’


Around the gloom, around the dark, and hopelessness
She held her son a piece of flesh
Alone in grief, alone in thought she stood
The Pieta’


She saw him hit, she saw him fall, his eyes
She closed herself; hers the last kiss
Hers the last touch, farewell:


Alone in grief, alone in thought she stood
Pieta’
