Gone but not forgotten

by michelle

As I sit, I look up at the wall
To see the only memory of you
But now that memory is gone.

For, an evil stepmother came
Shortly after you left
She tore our family apart
And took you off the wall.

Blinking back tears
I try not to cry
Every time I think of you
My heart starts to whine.

I miss you more each day
And I wish I was there
When God took you away
Just to say mummy goodbye.

If life had second chances
I'd give you a thousand
So that you could come back
And do whatever you wanted.

Even though you were taken
When I was young,
And even though I have no pictures of you
You will always be in my heart.

For, no one as pure as you
Would just let go
Just remember that
Even though you are gone
You will never be forgotten.

R.I.P Marie

wot a lovely poem
by: Anonymous

that was such a lovely wee poem . im sure ur mummy is very near watching u grow n im sure shes so very proud of u. im so sorry u have no photos, my daddy lost his mum when he was just 11 and that was after he had been ill n lost his hearing n speech thro scarlet fever 2 years earlier. he also has no photos of his mum or dad . that was 66 years ago he'll be 77 later this month and still misses his mum very much. although it doesn't get any easier u will, in time, learn to cope with her loss. Her love will never ever leave u n i truly believe those that love so deeply never really go away their spirit is still watching over those that r left. take care n god bless u xx
