I didn't get to say goodbye

Mommy, it hurts so much to think of what you suffered through.
I wish I could have done more for you,
I ache inside for the pain you have endured,
I want to go back and give you a better life
To plant a beautiful garden together and walk with your hand in mine
I want you back to show you how much you mean to me
I want us to sit for hours and sip our tea
I am so sorry I didn’t give you more of my time and my love,
I know I should feel comfort knowing you are up above
But I haven’t gotten to that place
All I have is an ache to see your beautiful face.
I am thankful for the time we spent together before you passed
I just didn’t want it to be our last
I never got to say goodbye,
To understand why, I can but try
Kristy Kay

I know the pain you are feeling. There is nothing worse than losing your mother, your best friend, and not being able to say goodbye.

I hope that you can find comfort from this website. I have. I also made a memorial for my Mom and had my husband, daughter and son write their feelings.
