To live without your love is hell

by Jillian

My darling mum,

I nursed you for over a decade
But somehow it seemed you were my carer

Thank you for giving me the courage
To get through two tough operations

For giving me the dignity to get through a divorce
When other avoided me

When my brother, your youngest son was seriously ill
You made me strong, so he would not be fearful

To live without your love
Is proving impossible

Your beautiful smile and singing voice
Your kindness and optimism

You never envied others who could walk
But counted your blessings everyday

You told me how it would be
you lost your mum at the tender age of 14

But I never knew just how lonely days
Would prove to be

I continue without you as you wished
The battle does not get any easier

Went to a support group
They all had daughters, sisters, who fill the void

You were all of those relations to me
Childless and without sisters or aunties

I MISS YOU MUMxxxxxxxx
