Tahlequah

Tahlequah
is your name
We share your plight
empathy close so to the same
Your unbearable grief has brought you fame
Your visible anguish carries him
morning through night
DNA won’t allow Moms to give up the fight
Your pod’s postured there for you and he
Can you trust them to help you in setting him free?
Torturous the day for letting him go
But he’s in your heart, your soul, every cell that you know
Oh Tahlequah
your sorrow’s felt by all who see
Your beautiful boy wrenches our hearts
as you carry him beautifully,
natures tragic art
unflinchingly
loyally
through the sea
