Remembering.

Remembering

Elizabeth Dent

Go ahead and mention my child,
The one who died, you know.

Don’t worry about hurting me further.
The depth of my pain doesn’t show.

Don’t worry about making me cry.
I’m already crying inside.

Help me to heal by releasing,
The tears that I try to hide.

I’m hurt when you keep silent,
Pretending she didn’t exist.

I’d rather you mention my child,
Knowing that she has been missed.

You ask me how I was doing.
I say “pretty good” or “fine.”

But healing is something ongoing.
I feel it will take a lifetime.
