How Did I Become Big Enough?

By Gloria Faye Brown Bates/aka Granny Gee

I felt hot tears in my eyes
I remembered why
Today is my son’s birthday
I’ll never see him again

He’s gone now, I’ve not forgotten him
I live with pure grief
Every day of my life
I stay quiet, I don’t talk about him

Once the knowledge he was gone
Was too big for me
How did I become … big enough
To live, hold such knowledge inside me?
