Hey Mom, I was going to write you a poem for Christmas, since I know you loved them so much.
But I find myself sitting here, writing you one now, too early and such.
I just wanted to let you know, you are my idol, my hero, my mom and my best friend,
We are all brought here tonight, in sadness and loss, but I know this is not the end.

I will remember you every time I see a yard-sale on a hot summer day,
Or when I go down the shore and sit under the sun on the dock on the bay.
I will cherish the times you gave me advice on boys that acted lame.
And I will remember you every time I eat sushi, but it won't be the same.

I will miss how we used to share shoes, and how for us, pants were never long enough,
I will miss how we had tea-parties, special days, and did girl stuff.
Not only did you bring me coffee every morning before school each day,
But you were a beloved international mom, that's more than most can say.

When I was little, they called me your “shadow”, I never left your side.
You taught me to be strong, to choose joy, to be myself, and have pride.
I know God took you early, and I know it’s not fair in anyway,
But I know you will be with us in spirit, you will be with us every day.

I love you so much mom, and forever the memories of you I will share,
So mom I know you're with us, in my heart always, I will keep you there.

How giving of you to share your love and special memories of your mom. I see you love her very much. I also see she loved you too. Remember, love never fails. I lost my mom over 16 years ago and sometime I still weep for her. Go ahead and cry whenever you need to, for crying releases pain and it is because we loved and missed our love one so much. To God Be the glory, For He is the Resurrection.

Ref: 1Corin. 13:8; 2Corin. 5:1-8; 1Thess 4:13-17
