পেনেলোপে রে কোবি (অপহৃত শিশু) | Penelope Rae Cobby (The Stolen Child)

By and | 1 October 2016

I am the huddle at the door
I am the sound of disbelief
I am the awkward in the car
I am the mystery touch of grief

I am the baby blanket never used
The empty pram that gathers dust
The empty cot with teddy bears
The silent tears in silent eyes

I am the toys without a toddler
The empty birthday with no cake
The empty name without a face
The whisper lost within the why

I am the sin that lies unsolved
I am the unsaid glance of blame
I am the hurting unresolved
I am the baby lost by shame
