Mother (in memory of Armand 1983-2013)
Grief is the colour of the sky
Just before the rain.
My friends, your silent tears,
Your faces full of pain.
And I know I cannot comfort you
Nor even see you again.
Loss is the colour of a rainbow
Aching, arching, teary-eyed.
All the things that were, now gone,
So much love you cried.
What can a mother say
To a mother of a son who has died ?
