Poem. Mother You left without saying goodbye

Updated on August 6, 2013

This poem was extremely painfull to write, it doesn't flow how I would like,

through tears and sobs I've penned this ode and mistakes I've made a few,

but the heartfelt sentiment is pure gold, Mother I really miss you.

You left without saying goodbye,

it was only after the event, I found out,

numbed me to the core, made me cry,

the news stifled within me a mournful shout,

tears of sadness flooded my view,

my breath ached in my chest,

my world undone – now what to do,

I really don't know for the best,

my beloved mother why, why, why,

I'm no longer psychedelic just sombre blue,

why did you leave without saying goodbye,

is that what you really wanted to do,

you've been my rock of ages all my life,

in dignity you loved me most,

even when I caused you strife,

about me you loved to boast,

held my hand when I've been afraid,

kept me warm when I was cold,

paid my bills when they needed to be paid,

my problems in life you resolved,

I'm a ship lost at sea, I drift without a rudder,

you were the only one who loved and believed in me,

I'm lost without my mother,

no words that I express can say how I feel,

there's nothing that can be undone,

if I wrote a million words, it wouldn't make it less real,

my biggest regret..............I've lost my mom

    Very beautiful poem. Sorry for the lose of your mom. I know how it is. My mother died a few years ago and it is still hard to believe that she is gone. Keep writing as it helps a bit.

    I will try what you suggested and every step is slow and painful and this whole hubpage account is in her memory and ill leave a lasting legacy of rhyme covering allsorts of topics I'm at my best when I'm writing, my mother did'nt really see that side of me although she knew I did write poetry. Thankyou for your lovely kind words and encouragement bless you Namaste

    Keep writing your way through it... that is when I began to write for the first time, when I lost my Mama to cancer of an unknown primary. It was in 8 parts of her body by the time she passed away. Grief is one of the oddest human emotions... and also the most selfish. We are not sad for our Mama's... me or you... we are sad for ourselves because WE don't have our Mamas anymore.

    Cycle through the process. There will be times when you feel like you get sucker punched dead off in the gut by grief... and you will cry, sob even. Let yourself cry... but don't wallow in it... go through the process... be at peace...
