barren

the snow on the mountain lights up

like a heavenly halo

why do i feel so sad?

underneath my resilience

lies fragility once again

to remind me that things hurt

of the children i’ve lost

of the one i crave

wanting my family

to be complete

so i can stop looking

all over the world for it

maybe the restless will sleep

once they arrive

in my empty arms

no longer barren

but holding life
