I Miss You, Mom ...
I Miss You, Mom ...
I miss the warmth of your gentle hand and the love I felt when you wrapped your arms around me. I miss seeing your smile and the sound of your voice. I miss hearing you say, “I love you.”
I miss saying “Mom” out loud. I miss not getting letters and calls from you just to share our thoughts and day.
I miss your words of wisdom and your gentle ways. I miss the look in your eyes that traveled straight to my heart. I miss the gift of you in the life that I have embraced from the day I was born. I miss YOU Mom!
I miss having you share the feelings that linger deep within my soul; there is emptiness there where you once were. I miss you saying "this is my daughter” and the look of pride you held with each word spoken.
I said goodbye to part of my heart the day you left!
And then, in the Grace of that moment ... I closed my eyes and felt the warmth of your gentle hug once more. I saw your smile as you said my name. I know I can go back into precious memories of you and find your treasured words of wisdom that are protected in a special place deep in my heart. But, I miss YOU mom.
And then an overwhelming sense of peace and love surrounds me because I know you knew and understood each feeling I held within my soul.
The part of me that had to let you go also knows you are the Angel who watches over me. Deep inside my soul I believe there truly is a God and that one day I will walk toward your open arms and hear you say, “This is my daughter; I love you; you can come now”!
And in the peace of that moment, angels flutter their wings and leave me knowing that I must understand. I will be okay, mom, because you are with me in my heart!
Oh, but I do miss YOU mom.
