Miss Me

Updated on April 15, 2019

You'll Miss Me

She was young and beautiful,
that's all I could see.
She was my mother,
and the world to me. 
How lucky could I be?

We were tough to handle and reckless,
just my brother and me.
I guess you can say, 
we were just not that easy.
My brother and me.

And she would say,

You'll miss me,
trust what I say my dear.
Maybe not today,
or next year 
but,you'll miss me.

I was 20 when I got my first girlfriend,
My lovely mother was pushed aside.
These two worlds could not be one,
how could she be so blind.
I was unkind.

She would ask to spend sometime together,
I'd just say "yeah, maybe tomorrow."
I was so stupid and so wrong,
I couldn't see her sorrow.
Through her heart I shot an arrow.

But she would say.

You'll miss me,
how can I make you hear.
You'll miss me,
not tonight or next year 
but, you'll miss me.

It was summer 2007,
when we got the news.
It wasn't a stroke but, cancer,
that made my mother blue.
How can this be true.

We were told we had five years,
so we made our plans.
I remember thinking,
I'll give her all I can.
I wanted to be a strong man.

That's when she said.

Try not to miss me,
I'm no use anymore.
My body is to weak,
what am I here for.
Please,try not to miss me.

AT 5:00 pm in a traffic jam,
my father called that it was time.
I drove like a wild man,
I was losing my mind.
This live is to unkind.

That's when I whispered to her.

I'll miss you,
trust me mama dear.
I'll miss you,
today and all through my years.
I'll miss you.


My mother, brother and me. 2004

Take this time and tell your loved ones that you love them. Tell them that when you are apart you miss them. Above and beyond all things, never take them for granted. If they call, listen. If they need you, go to them. If they want to see you, just say yes. Its not the minutes together that you long for in the end, its the minutes apart that you wish you could have again

      She was an amazing mother and human being. Very kind and loving and she knew how much you loved her. Being young it is normal that we do things that you may think are selfish but that just come with immaturity. Your mom knew how much you loved her. I know she would be very proud of the man you have become. I also miss her very much. It is true that we must always tell our loved ones how much we love them because all we have are moments. It is a beautiful tribute that you have written.

      One of the most wonderful things about your mother is that she was forgiving like me. She would never hold grudges for too long and I know she understood that you were young and didn't intentionally push her aside. In her heart, she knew she was your number one woman and no one could take her place. She felt how much you loved her even when you weren't around. She knows how much you miss her now and I know she has forgiven you for anything you feel guilty about. She loves all her children unconditionally. Regardless of how you behaved, you grew up to be a good man. You are caring, kind, unselfish and always lend a helping hand when you can. You remind me of her in so many ways. Please know that she is proud of you. She sees what a wonderful, loving father and husband that you are now and I'm sure she has a smile from ear to ear because that's how she was and that's how she would want to be remembered. She always had a smile on her face. I miss you too Xiomi. I wish Tristan could have met you. I know both of you would adore one another.
