I will wait for you

Updated on April 20, 2011

I was the last of her kids and the profound love that existed between a Mother and her child was eminent in my relationship with my mother though i was not her favorite child because whatever be the case, there is always a favorite among all but i was simply her pet.

Like Dad who made sure that i lacked nothing, Mom was always there to help me go on, she was like a mentor to me though the Bible says "Discipline your child", Mom found it hard to lay hands on me each time i go wrong.

She had a simple way of making me do the things she wanted me to do.

Remembering that she carried me in her womb and gave me life made me loved my mother more than anyone else.

I vowed to be there for her and though i was still young, i still knew what to buy for her during the mother's day.

She was surprised when she opened the pack and saw an Apron.

O sweet you she said

You are a dove my son

And i will always love you

I will be there for you

And no matter what happens

I will wait for you

Until you become a man

It was the mid hours of the day

Sitting with couple of friends

Waiting for the bell to ring

All my wish was for the day to come

The school long break

They came and told me not to visit

Until school is closed

What an order i thought from them

But young and obedient

I had to comply

Two days more to wait for the break

But my love for you propelled me to leave

How on Earth did she get sick

No i have to go with you to see my Mom

Waiting anxiously for him to get set

Then all of a sudden he had a swollen face

Where did the news come from

A bit confused seeing the gathering

Where is my Mother i asked them all

Wait for us we will be back shortly

I never thought of this because you promised that no matter what happens that you will be there for me,you promised to watch me become a man and hold my hand when i wed my wife,there was nothing you hid from us and you showed us amidst all your trials that you are...

the brightest star

so when it finally dawned on me that you were gone,i cried to God to bring you back.

Bring back my mother

God bring her back

I know that there is no way my prayer could be answered but i still treasure all the moments spent with you though it was a short fifteen years but you were a sweet mother and that note you left for me before Christmas actually got to me...


My dear son,

I love you and will always watch over you,it is painful but i cannot bear this pain any more but if eventually anything happen to me,always remember that you were my favorite and most loved and that i will wait for you at heaven's gate.

"Mom,i know that you failed to keep your promise to always be there for me but honestly,i strongly believe that you will keep your promise to wait for me at heaven's gate so i look forward to seeing you someday."

      So sorry. My brother-in-law passed away last Tuesday and I still can't believe it. Doesn't seem real. It's like he's going to just show up.
