DEAR MOTHER: POETRY "DEDICATED TO ALL LOST MOTHERS"

Updated on October 6, 2011
Source

Dear Mother,

I wanted to write this letter to you


I addressed it to Heaven


I just wanted you to know


You in my life was a blessing


I carry with me all your love


All your wisdom and precious memories


I feel so alone, now that your gone


I'm like a bird without wings


Just thinking of all you did for me


It puts a smile upon my face


Inside I'm dieing, your one of a kind


No one could ever take your place.


I write this letter to you dear mother


Because I didn't tell you good-bye


I sure hope your up there listening


Cause I say it in my prayers every night


Unlike me you were never selfish


You treated everyone like family


There's no words in the English dictionary


That defines what you mean to me


Mom, I will truly miss you


Without you this world is missing out


I hope I told you I love you enough


Mom, I hope I made you proud


So promise to save me a spot in Heaven


Today, I begin to live right


In Jesus' name Amen


And to you mom,...goodnight.....

      A beautiful and touching remembrance of your mother.

      My mother passed away this year in March 23, 2012, to ALS (Lou Gehrigh's Disease) like the Titanic ship...Out of tears I saw her sinking as I watched her pass away. I stood by her bedside as she took her last breath. My heart was broken, I wanted to believe she would stay...

      It broke my heart to loose her, part of me went with her. Sadly her life was robbed away and me. The pain is heartwrenching. I know she wants my heart to go on, but it really totally changes a person to watch such a beautiful, full of life and loved woman be ravaged by such an awful disease.

      God bless you...

      Mar, so sorry about your mom. I am glad that you all had a strong bond like that. It is very special. It makes me happy when someone else can connect with the poem like you. Mar, you make it all worth while dear friend. God Bless.

      thelyricwriter,

      I love that you wrote this for your wife/ MIL. When Mom died, my husband felt as though he had lost his Mom as well. I felt the same way when his Mom died. You have struck such a universal chord with any of us who have lost a beautiful maternal soul from our immediate world. I feel Mom in my heart guiding me every day and was truly touched by the power of your words... they felt like a bedtime prayer to me. Voted UP & AB, mar.

      Hello Sueswan, I appreciate that. It is always worth while when someone feels the meaning of your poem. Your poems are very much like that and I enjoy yours as well.

      Thanks for the comment. It is about losing a mother, even relates to someone that has been like a mother, even a father. But, it can be related to birth as well Sord. It all is about what the reader sees. It is what it is. Someone wrote a hub about that. I forget who it is?

      So sorry to hear that Sholland. I am sure she did, truly. I really believe a mother never leaves her kids. And also, the grandkids. I know it may sound off topic, but her soul can still be there. I believe in the other side. My son experienced such events. He has seen his mom's mother a few different times and the funny thing, he remembers. 3 years old was the first occurrence. It shocked me at first. Then he told me she is just making sure I am ok. I learned to accept it.

      Gypsy, thanks for your thoughtful comment. I am glad to know you have seen her on the other side. Still, some don't believe in that, but I do. It is possible and it is coming out more and more with each passing day.

      I relate to your poem. I lost my mother in 2010. I have wonderful memories and feel I did not do enough for her. I hope my mother heard my heart when I read your poem.

      My tears are "Salty" as I read this Beautiful, Heartfelt, Tribute to your Mother, Lyricwriter. I too never got to say goodbye to my Mother either. However one night in a Dream she came to me, and we shared that moment and I did get to say goodbye.

      I am wiping my eyes as I write this. You have written such a beautiful tribute to your mother. I lost my mother 33 years ago on the 23rd of this month, I was eleven years old. She was the center of our family, and the center of my universe. Thank you for sharing this. Voted up, and beautiful.

      Thank you both for your comments. This was actually wrote from my wife's perspective. She is the one that has lost her mother, I should have defined that a little more. At this time, I studied her and just wrote what I saw from her. Thus, this poem was born. Her mom was just 39 at the time.
