What Do You Say

Saw a friend today,

( Not a real close friend,

But the kind you stop and make a point,

With to say hey,

And ask about the kids )

Only today I did not know what to say,

Her baby died,

Suddenly,

The same day my grandmother did,

( Sids)

Four months old,

And I wondered the grief,

She must be facing,

But really had no idea,

What to say,

How do you console,

Someone who lost,

An infant son,

So young?

I really did not know,

What to say or do,

What do you say,

When you know you really can not say,

Anything,

Because you are afraid,

Anything you might say hurt.

It is harder for a Mother to loose a son than for a son to loose a Mother…
