That Look

That Look 

 
Her stare defiant.
Eyes wild, exquisite
in their sadness.
Fear has passed.
Dare you look away.
 
She treasures what she held,
though love failed
to keep the child
safe. Stone
dwells in her heart.
 
Taken too soon
for memories.
Yet she smiles,
whilst lens captures
image of her child.
