Brittany Zedalis- Two Poems

Mother's Advice

A child's voice
determined, whining
and ignorant of
life's true loss,
the sorrow of a
motherless heart.

A phone call,
5 words already
known, an extra 
ring on a finger,
a man whose love 
turned savior.

3 years of
a voice, futile
attempts to annoy,
words that held as
much truth as a

Suddenly absent,
a mother, whose
advice finally 
taken, to leave
children to
their games.

Sorrow Is..

Sorrow is
a blue casket
buried too

Sorrow is
a stuffed bear
left alone,

Sorrow is
a list of songs
no longer

Sorrow is
when it hurts
more to breathe
than to live.

Brittany Zedalis is a 21 year old married poet who recently lost her 49 year old mother to sickness. Poetry has turned into more than just an outlet for her; it is now a way to preserve memories.
