I would opinion on this poem, is it appropiate to send to a mom that recently lost her son (he was only 11 months old). Should I send it by card or email?

I was thinking of you today,
And how painful it might be,
To have lived through the death of your child

When that was never the way

You saw their life to be.



On this day when children honor their mother…

Though they are not here to tell you,

Always their mother, you shall be.



For though your child has died before you,

So painful to imagine.

Your child lives on within you,

And to all who know you well.

The light of your child will always

Return to touch you;

And in a quiet voice, whisper words of love.



This is not a mother’s day you ever planned.

That sorrow and loss, I respect.

Words do not say enough.

My thoughts are with you on a day

Of sadness and memories,

For you, their mother.

Unless you know that poor mama very, very well, and therefore know for fact that she would appreciate such a poem, I would not send it.
