Useless Words.

What do you say to that mother who’s heard everything except her son say her name?

What can you say to that mother who lost a boy who could be you?

What will you say to that mother when you stand in front of her?

I thought I would say something grand.

I thought I wanted to say something heartfelt.

I thought I wished to say something real.

But…

all I did say was…

“I’m Sorry”

How foolish.
