Goodbye my family

Oh mum, but it’s not possibly can we go on if your not there?
Who else will guide us through life’s ups and downs with love and care, I cry again’s not fair!
Oh mum, but you were the one who made things right, when troubles invaded our hearts and minds by night
Your advice, your wisdom and your tears, you were the one who could always settle our fears

Oh mum, but how we love and miss you so, like a seed planted in our hearts that can only take root and grow
Your beautiful smile... and shining eyes... your hugs and kisses, were ours divine
Oh mum, how we wish you didn’t have to go, it feels far too soon, but please take our words to comfort you, and read them as you go.

Oh my family, for I would agree, but the fairness of it all is not a decision taken by me...
So I say, Goodbye my family, my life has now past, and only god knows how much I loved you all, till the very last.
So weep not for me, but courage take
Love each other for all our sake
And remember my family, those you love don’t truly go away, they walk unseen beside you everyday
And that seed in your heart you feel that can only grow, that is me my darlings, I will never let you go.

Today is almost one month since I lost my mom. Your poem brought back tears to my eyes. I lost my best friend, my confident, my hero.

My Beautiful Mother

What a lovely poem. I lost my Mother 2 1/2 weeks ago and Im still in denial. I dont want to believe she is gone from this earth. She was my everything. I dont know how to live life without her. She was sick for 4 years but your never ready for a loved one to leave. I love you Mom

My tear drops
by: debbie

This is how I feel too so I can feel your sadness. My mom would probably say those same things you wrote.
I lost my mom to cancer and just have had an utterly despairing couple of years. I still wish I could talk to her, see her smiling face.

Thanks for sharing your feelings. Our mom's are in our hearts every day.
