It Has Been Too Long

Nobody Seems To Notice

There was a time not long ago

I could say words like mom,my mother and even ma

Any day of the week

But unfortunately that is a part of my vocabulary that is gone for good

A half of the year managed to sneak by

Pulling at old memories like a broken guitar string

What's the use if they don't bring back the sound

I once found

Enjoying all the fun that each day could surprise me with

Sharing more than just thoughts on paper

Bringing all my love for one person under a microscope

When there was nothing to be seen by the naked eye

Look a little closer

You were always in my thoughts and my prayers

Being the youngest of four boys

I got the least amount of time

It doesn't seem right

That is life

Unforgiving and blunt

Now I can crumble like a cookie I wish I had eaten sooner

Or choose a better choice

To rejoice

I got to know a woman all my life

That was my mom like it or not

She told me when I was wrong and held her ground

I heard her curse when she was mad

She would bend over backwards to help anyone

Most of all I loved her laugh when she was happy not sad

We had the most fun a mother and son could have

Spending time together doing nothing special and making life just short of incredible

When you lose someone special like a mom, a dad, a spouse or even a very good friend it's very hard at the beginning because you continue to live like the person is still in this world and when something special happened in the day.... you think .... I have to tell mom, dad, .... and then it's when it hits you again that that special someone is gone and you can't share those special moments.

Thanks for these lovely words who bring back to me several precious people from the past.

It also shows that we have to enjoy fully the present and never forget to say I love you to those people who make our life so special!

Have a special weekend with those who are precious to you!

Voted up and awesome. Wonderful tribute to you mom. Lovely sentiments. You know there are times when I remember with longing the days when I could talk to my mom and be reassured that all was well with my world. However moms are always watching over us and that is a comfort. Passing this on.
