Silent Grief, Silent Hope

Rating: 5.0
Over a shallow grave of blood and flesh
a mere fistful of tears are flung.
Brief life with questionable purpose;
unseen, unheard, unsung.

Untold life will soon be forgotten-
Tiny flicker of hope it once held
of unseen tears, unheard laughter,
and unsung lullabies before bed.

So life goes on behind a false facade,
but the faintest grief still lingers.
And with it remains the tiny flicker of hope
still yearning to count tiny fingers.
Roshni D'Souza

'unsung lullabys before bed'...so dark Roshni but I like it that at the end there is a glimmer of hope and a yearning for re-birth....
