Missing My Mum

I was only 5 years old at the time, I never knew who she was. I remember the smallest things about her, but nothing more. As I try to remember, I often get emotional. I just know that in my heart, I love her. If she were here right now, my life would be better. I'm
15 years old now so its been 10 years. She died of c.o.p.d but she died in her sleep. I remember that morning where my dad was sitting in a chair crying. He told me what had happened, and my heart froze, I felt like no one was there. Although I didn't really understand what was going on at the time, I cried my heart out. As I grew older, I didn't know any different than the kids that had a mum there for them. Know as I try to look back, I shed a tear or 2. Just wishing I had a mum there for me.

I know what you are going through. Back on Dec. 6, 1995, my father passed away. My parents had been separated since I was eight and divorced since I was fifteen. My father and I were not real close. Just last month on November 11, 2012 my mom passed away. It was one of the worse things I ever went through or seen. Now I am an orphan. I am alone and it does not feel too good. Sure I have friends but my mom was always there when I needed her. It doesn't matter how old or young your mother was when she passed or how old you were, it is still hard.. I do hope that you find comfort when you remember that she loved you unconditionally. Hope you have a close family that you can lean on and some good friends. Just keep her memory alive by talking about her and looking at her pictures. Somehow I believe that they never really leave their children. We may not be able to see them but they are with us always. My mom would always pick up a penny when she seen on on the street. The past few years, I would have to pick them up for her. Since she passed, I found so many coins on the street. I pick them up and put them in my pocket. That's her way of saying, I am still around. Believe me, your mom is watching over you. Have a happy New Year.
