A Message To My Mom

Updated on December 8, 2015
I miss you mom.
I miss you mom. | Source
 
 

I caught myself dialing your number today.

I just wanted to say hello.

It’s been a while since I’ve heard your voice.

I miss our little chats about nothing in particular.

They seemed so unnecessary, and sometimes even a bother when my days were hectic.

I wish I hadn’t taken them for granted now, wish I had not been annoyed by those interruptions.

I got on Facebook this morning, like I do every day.

It told me that I haven’t been in touch with you for a while; that I should send you a message.

How I wish I could!

I miss our little IM chats in the afternoons, when we talked about silly things.

The kind of flowers you bought to put in your flower beds, the crazy weather.

What you were planning to cook for dinner which, was always something yummy sounding.

The various projects you were busy with, you were never still for long.

I pulled your picture up on my computer and sat – looking at your image, remembering the many things we’ve done together, places we’ve gone throughout the years.

I realized that those times are gone now – gone forever, but the memories still linger.

I sat alone, looking at your picture, wishing I could call, or IM, or send you a message – because I just want to tell you – I miss you mom.

 

To Billie, my surrogate mother, my friend, and a beautiful person.

                                       I miss you very much,

                  but I know Heaven is blessed to have you there.

Your Hands

      Moms are special, they listen without judgment, hug without holding back, and love beyond all the mistakes and sorrow they have endured.

      Thank you millsdelight1280. Cherish the time you have with your mother as there is no guarantee as to how long they will be with us. The memories I have of my mom bring me great comfort.

      This poem almost bought a tear to my eye. Although my mom gets on my nerves being the way she is; she is still my mom and I do love her. I'm sure that your mom is smiling down from heaven right now & that she's proud of you.

      Even a phone call is a precious moment with those we love. We don't realize how important they are until the phone is silent. Give her a call FreezeFrame34, you'll be glad you did.

      Very beautifully written. Sorry for your loss, but glad you could share and touch others' lives. I live far away from my mother and I wish I could spend more time with her before it's too late!

      More often than not, it's not what is said, it is simply knowing that someone cares enough to reach out when it's needed most.

      I have no words to console you. I am so sorry for your loss and I know how it feels like. May God be with you always and of course your mom is blessing you from Heaven and asking you not to cry.

      Its a real emotional hub and written so nicely.

      A fox has slipped into my yard, but the little prince never followed. This cruel absence is felt as a Winter of Vivaldi down to my genes, and it bangs at the door of my elated freedom with an inconsolable yearning. Sometimes I feel like I am the drawing of an elephant that has been swallowed by the boa of history, that people confuse with a hat.

      corinnek,

      I am so sorry for your loss. Losing a parent is a difficult thing, despite how close we are to them. I am quite sure your mother looks down on your baby and is indeed watching over him. As long as her memory is alive in your heart, she will be with you.

      beautiful poem. I lost my mom in October of last year. We weren't super close, but I still find myself wanting to tell her things at times. I still talk to her all the time, in my head, and out loud. I talk to her about how she made me feel, whether those feelings were good or bad. I ask her to watch over my kids. I just had a baby 2 weeks ago, and I know she was so excited to have another grandchild, and it hurts that he will never get to meet her. But I know she's watching him from heaven. She's my kids' personal guardian angel.

      awesome games - Sometimes the responsibilities of life keep us from the things we long to do. I am still here, keep coming back, I do promise more.

      Tammy - I am so sorry for your loss. It is such a blow when we lose a parent, and for you to lose her in such a way is most difficult. Although my mom did not die of cancer, I can understand the depth of your grief. I have lost many family members and friends to the monster, which is why I have been very involved with Relay for Life for the past ten years. It has been a great way to heal. May you find solace and peace, and keep the memories of your mother alive in your heart.

      pratoocool - Thank you for the read and commenting.

      kethyjewel,

      I cannot, and will not forget my mom. Although, this is a difficult and sad time, it is part of the normal grieving process, and a way I remember and honor her. She was such an important part of my life, and what she deposited within me through her kindness and friendship, molded me into the person I am today.

      I will indeed continue on in life, and I hope that all that I do can reflect the beauty she added to it.

      I do not know you and I do know you because we have a point in common, a common ground - a place where we can talk about our feelings and about the love for someone we lost and we are longing for. Your writing is beautiful as it comes straigh from your heart not just from your pen. I relate to your loss I am sorry it happened. Hope by Grace will get the strenght to keep going on your life/journey doing exactly what your sweet mom would like you to do. Many Blessings and much love. xxxx

      Your words touched my soul. I cannot imagine not having my mother around - yet she was nearly taken from us in late November last year when she was broadsided by a Hummer H3. This is a very intimate "picture in time". Thank you for opening up to share your pain and grief with us. God bless you......

      I am so happy that you were able to let your mother know how much she meant to you while she was still living. We should never take those we love for granted, but sadly, we do.

      ...this is a poetic masterpiece my friend - mainly because it comes from 'you' and your memory of your 'mum' - but also because it does what great writing should do - and it touches something very deep inside of me - because my mum was my best friend - and I wish she were here for me to say it (although lucky for both of us - she did hear that many many times )

      It has been just a little over a month since she passed away. Some days it seems like it's just a bad joke, other days it becomes almost unbearable. Some days I'm just lonely without hearing from her.

      Thanks for stopping by Minnetonka Twin, It's nice to have the comfort of someone who knows.

      You knocked me out with this beautiful piece of writing. I know how it feels to go dial the number. I still go to call my dad at night and it's been 12 years now. I don't do it as often as I did in the first few years but I still forget at times. Our love for loved ones will always remain with us. God Bless you dear
