Locked Inside Her Pain - Poem by Melissia Ann Senter

Living day to day in severe pain,
overwhelming is her pain today,
can't walk too good, for her legs hurt so.
Kind and gentle she is, through all of her pain,
even on her worst days, she always has a smile
and a kind word for those who may pass by her way.
Day after day I watch her in pain
and pray there was something I could do.

Intensely wanting to just be able to take all her pain away,
nothing I can do to help her with it.
Sweet and loving she is, her pain is sometimes unbearable.
Intense pain is what she lives with everyday.
Doctors won't give her anything for fear she may be allergic.
Each and everyday her pain becomes worse.

Hating myself because there is nothing I can do to help her,
hoping that someday they will find a cure for Fibromyalgia and tendontis,
realizing that she may never ever be pain free.
Patiently, she tries to do the things she used to do
but, once again her pain stops her from doing them.
Inside her pain she cries, for relief of her pain or maybe a cure
never getting the relief she so deserves, or wants.

Dear Lord, please take my mom's pain away,
so she will no longer be locked inside her pain
and give her the life she used to know back,
so that she can live her life a normal person without pain,
and God, please be with her every day and night
and keep her safe and warm.

    Melissia, I was moved to tears by your compassion and empathy for your mother's pain. Your poem and prayer for her is beautiful. I too suffer from chronic pain and know all to well the toll it exacts on your psyche. The smile on your mum's face says a lot about her character and the condition of her soul... she shines in spite of the darkness.

    My poem 'A Prayer For Mercy' might speak to your heart... and to hers for that matter. Take care.

    Namaste, Shirley
