Another Mother’s Day Without You

Mother and me years ago
Mother and me years ago


My dearest mom another Mother’s Day
Here on earth without you
But I know that you are and forever will be by my side
I’d rather think of the Mother’s Days we’ve had together
The laughter that we shared
From childhood up onwards
Still remember dad and I
Coming home with bouquets of flowers
Your lauging brown eyes and delightful smile
Your caring and love
That forever shown through
Making each day so much brighter
Just because your were there
Mom I know that when I look toward the Heavens
The brightest star I see is the one your swinging on
I know that you still guide me
And someday we’ll meet again
So thank you for all the years
All the happy and glad times we shared
Love you mom always
Happy Mother’s Day in the world beyond

What sweet thoughts of your dear mom. My dear mother is also up there in heaven and I am surrounded by thoughts of her each day. It will be the second Mother's Day without my mother's warm and loving presence in our home. You and I are both blessed by having had wonderful mothers to warm our memories. Voted up and beautiful.

It's so lovely Rasma. This kind of poetry always touches me deeply, because I get to realize how much I still have, compared to many who don't anymore. Your wonderful memories are there for you to keep and cherish forever.

Gypsy, she has the sweetest face. And I know she's smiling down on you right now. You carry in you the love she instilled in your heart.

Voted Up, awesome, beautiful and interesting. In His Love, Faith Reaper
