A Lonely Figure.

I saw her crying in the park
A lonely figure in the dark
Her tears they fell upon the ground
Leaving patches wet and round

This fragile figure wracked with pain
Sobbing now without refrain
Of my presence unaware
Venting feelings of despair

An empty pushchair by her side
And then suddenly I realised
I knew I could not intervene
Upon this sad and grieving scene

And so I walked into the night
My heart felt heavy for her plight
Then in my mind I made a cross
A silent prayer to heed her loss.

A touching poem on a sad scene. It truly is heartbreaking to be in such a situation and unable to help. You told it so well.

Graham this is beautiful! With each write I see more and more of the heart inside you being revealed and it's pretty amazing. Seems the park isn't always a place of laughter and play...It's also a place where people go to grieve...mourn...cry. This hits home beautifully.
Hugs...

Very well done indeed! I truly enjoyed reading this one. You are a fine poet, and this is one great poem. It likely will go down in history as one of the greatest.
