Losing A Child



Unexplainable feelings of disbelief;
that your bundle of joy is gone.
Unexplainable feelings hate for;
not being able to protect your child.
Unexplainable feelings of anger for ;
letting this happen to your child.
Unexplainable feelings of resentment;
because everyone else is alive but ;
not your child.
Unexplainable feelings of fear;
you could lose another child.
Unexplainable feelings of depression;
not wanting to go on.
Unexplainable feelings of guilt because;
you can't find out what really happened,
Unexplainable feelings of one big hole;
in your heart.
Unexplainable feelings of ;
complete emptiness.
