As The Days Disappear---Enough

Updated on February 19, 2008

As the days disappear

My heart turns sad

Going through mom's past

As we clean out her room

She is confused and happy

Yet sad and alone..she asks why?

Why do you do this to me

Who are you anyway?

I'm hungry ..can we eat now?

Why are you going through my stuff

We are moving I say

Oh good I have too much stuff

I need a smaller place soon

Yes Mother very soon and we are packing now

That's why the mess and the tears roll down her face

Her memory jets back to her younger days

On the farm with the animals

And the fun she had milking the cows

Where are the cows..did they get out

I am taking a nap..don't work too hard

As I go through each stack of papers I find this poem : who wrote it? where it came from is a wonder to me.

I wish you enough sun to keep your attitude bright no matter how gray the day may appear

I wish you enough rain to appreciate the sun even more

I wish you enough happiness to keep your spirit alive and everlasting

I wish you enough pain so that even the smallest of joys in life may appear bigger

I wish you enough gain to satisfy your wanting

I wish you enough loss to appreciate all that you possess

I wish you enough hello's to get you through the final good-bye

and so my days ends with boxes to move and furniture to move and a hope that mom will be happy in her new space. G-Ma :o)

      G-Ma, that was so moving, so heartfelt. Life can be sad. I feel for you and your Mom and pray everything will work out. I pray for strength for you, the supernatural kind. God bless you both, my dear.

      You have a way with words. Thank you.
