This was an awful day,when i lost my Mum
from head to toe,all i felt was numb.
people walking by,saying their sorries,
all i could think of was my own personal worries.
time stood still, hardly a minute passed,
visions of my Mum,through my head they passed.
Times gone by so happy so content,
life ripped away,was it really meant.
one minute talking,having such fun
immediately afterward, the rising of the sun.
i sat at the corner,just after she died
the world looked still,that morning i cried.
no cars would pass,no people would walk by
my tears would glisten in the bright day sky.
went to my best friend,to give him the bad news
all he could express where his heartfelt views.
it was nice the company i had those first few hours
time passed slightly faster,those first few hours.
the day started so lonely,so bright and so sad
at the end of the day,i still felt as bad.
i knew it would be a long time,till i could smile before i cry
ten years later,i smile before i cry.
this poem i originally wrote the day my Mum died.
It is how i felt at the moment and on the day she died.i have added very little to it since the first draft.i hope you enjoy it.
