Thinking of My Mother - Happy Mother's Day

Happy Mother's Day
Happy Mother's Day

My mother passed away when I was 17, which I was still in the high school. It all seem that the most unfortunate moment of my life just happened yesterday. It was so close yet so far. No words can describe the 'grey' feelings inside, it just came when it happened. I still remember when I heard the news of her dead, I was in a total disbelief; not that kind of thing that you were trying to lie to yourself, instead, it was more like the whole thinking process of the brain has totally rejected the idea. It was definitely wrong to accept the idea.

To be truth, although it happened almost two decades ago, somehow I still can't accept the fact that she was no longer around and I still always wonder how could she was taken from me so early. No one can give me an absolute answer except those explanations that normally served by the religions. And like it or not, it is something that I have to accept. Death is certain and Life is always filled with uncertainties.

Below is something that I wrote during the Mother's Day back in 1996, almost two months after her departure into the infinite realm.

She was the only one

Who really care for me

When I was sick

She would stay beside me

Stayed up till the next morning

Until I could get up from the bed

When I was unhappy

She would come with comforting words

When I needed something

She would try to get it and abandoned

The things that she had always wished for

But now my beloved mother

Had gone forever

Oh! I wish to see her again

But it only happens in my dream

And I really miss her so much!

Happy Mother's Day to all the mothers of the world. The world needs YOU!!!!

Happy Mother's Day

Mother by John Lennon (Live at Madison Square Garden)

    Thank you very much for your comforting words, Linda. I hope that you are as well as everyone too. It's sad to lose mother at young age, I couldn't imagine how you could cope with it at that young age.

    God bless you and your family.

    I can feel the pain and sadness in your story and poem. I am so sorry you lost your mother so young. You are not alone~I lost my mother when I was nine years old. I too wasn't told how she really died until I was older. Your mother is always at your side watching over you. God Bless you on this Mother's Day. I hope all the beautiful memories of your mother can help ease your pain on this Mother's Day.

    Our loved ones never leave us and go, they are always around us. Ofcourse we can`t see them but we can feel them and mothers never leave their children. A great tribute to your mom. Voted up.
