Army Mom’s Safe Haven

Christina: An Early Mothers' Day

AN EARLY MOTHERS' DAY

Onward, I must go onward -
when all I want to do is rest.....
I put one foot in front of the other,
I move; but am depressed.
To sleep is all I want to do -
Escape somehow from pain
The pressure I feel to carry on
is harsh, and very plain.
I do not care for trivial things,
that people talk about -
I do not care for much at all,
since your life has been snuffed out.
