LIVING WITHOUT YOUR LOVE IS IMPOSSIBLE
by DEVASTATED DAUGHTER
Your slippers and shoes are still here beside the bed
You always told me they would never wear out as you could not walk.
Your DVD's are redundant now
I tried watching your favourite `Philadelphia'
But broke down in tears
I went through past birthday cards
The messages you penned
So full of love and inspiration
Your stairlift is still
Remember when it use to break down ?
You blamed your size and pledged that diet that never happened.
Your hearing aids, glasses and dentures are here
Remember how you always worried about them breaking
Now you no longer need them
Your kisses and cuddles bound me with reassurance
Your smile lit up a dismal world
You told me to remember our beautiful friendship
And not to `spoil things'
Trying to keep going for a very special mum.
Is a torture I daily endure.
Your loving daughter XXX
