Parting Moments

Her world slipped into darkness,
As his world was filled with light,
He entered as she exited,
They’d journeyed through the night.
She hung on bravely wishing
For a cuddle and a kiss,
And the moments that she held him close
Were moments filled with bliss.
But as he lay there blinking
And his lungs grew filled with air,
His mother’s life was shrinking
‘Till she wasn’t really there.
The nurse removed him gently,
As she cried a mother’s cry
Then she spent a lifetime dwelling
On this moment marked with ‘Why?’
