For Mama (Gone but not Forgotten)

Updated on September 11, 2011
Source

I will never forget you


dedicated to the person who is like a mother to me...I'll be forever missing you...

For Mama

Life is such a fleeting thing

It’s there before,

And now it’s gone

I see you smile

Haunts upon my face

Is it a longing or of regret?

A kindred spirit

A lost soul

And now you’re gone

And I feel lost…

The days gone by

I hardly know

You were there

And I was everywhere

Our roads hardly meet

I can’t even say hello

And ask you: “How do you do?”

And now you’re gone

I feel so cold

I’m overwhelmed by your loss

The numbness I felt

Can never be replaced

For you are gone

All I ever have

Are the memories

Of the moments

Spent together

It resonates through my psyche

It lingers through my senses…

Though you’re not my maternal mom

But the feeling is real

And for that I’m glad

To have you in my life…

I love you though you may never know

Yet I wish the angels will sing it for me

And at last will make you happy…

      Beautiful sentiments. Follow Eiddwen's advice...she knows from experience, as do I. We've both written Hubs about loss of loved ones-her daughter; my husband.

      Never forgotten...

      When our loved ones depart this earth ,they are not gone from us.

      Their spirit is with us wherever we are and in whatever we do;they are in our hearts and soul, and she will know how much she meant to you.

      So sensitive,loving and touching poem.

      I look forward to reading many more by you.

      Take care

      Eiddwen.
