Bereavement to drowning

An unnecessary tragedy happened.
Twenty mothers joined my club.
The club of bereaved mothers.

Couple of days ago,
a 15 year old child drowned.
His poor mum joined my club.

My fourth uncle
was only 4, when he drowned.
My late grand ma was the bereaved mum I know.

I look at this body of water,
I was told a kid almost drowned.
His mum was spared through the heroics of a young boy.

Oh serene looking pool,
Oh raging gushing water,
When are you going to stop?
