Years Of Being Loved

Turn Back Time

Growing up I had a mom that gave unconditional love

She didn't have to say or do anything

The love was just understood

It was interwined through her every action

She always had a closeness and comfort that was there

I think of so many times we exchanged I love you's

It became part of our vocabulary and had so much more meaning than any other words

Spending time with my mom was precious

For each time was a little bit different than the next

My heart is left open

My thoughts reach out to you

I know you would only want life to move on

With this I send a kiss

That may reach your cheek in heaven

Giving you the same love you know only so well

May today be a good day and tomorrow be better

I hold this letter but your address is still unknown

When you get settled in let me know

I can send this to you

Just before Christmas

All my love and memories too

MHatter99 I don't know why some mothers don't bond with their children.The experiences and fun times can be endless.Maybe she had a rough childhood and she didn't know any better.I am sorry for your loss.Losing your mother the person that brought you into this world is someone I will always miss.I appreciate you reading and sharing your comment.Have a good day.

cleaner3 Writing about my mom is one way I deal with her being gone.Thanx for reading and understanding.My life is better because of her love.Now I share that love to other people so they can see how much a mother means to their son.Maybe they will do things with their children that will leave a good impression for years to come.

I can relate to the "unconditional love" a mother gives as mine was the same and I try to emulate her. Your mother remains with you in spirit and in the legacy of unconditional love - forever.
