Lost

This is something I have wanted to write about for a long time.

Lost

My mother lost her children,
three small lives
in one cruel instant
turned to ashes

I never saw her hands idle
never saw her stop
her constant motion
to sit and reflect

she cleaned and cooked
made beds and painted walls
never pausing long enough
to smell the smoke
and hear their cries
