My Mom... A Year And A Poem I Read At Her GraveMom. I don't go a day without a tear and a sigh.
I see your face with my doggy and a tear rolls from my eye,
You were my world, my best friend and my heart.
When you left me alone, I have fallen apart.
I didn't know how cancer could grab you away
And leave me struggling every single day,
I would give anything to have you back taking care of dad.
I wonder if there will ever be a day when I won't be sad.
For one moment I tried to join you in heaven"s gate.
But it was not my time to join you, not my fate.
I had a brief glimpse of peacefulness amongst the noise.
I won"t forget you crying and saying " I will miss my boys."
From the times you held my head when I was sick
To making my daily lunch for school not a better mother I could pick.
Where will I gather strength to go on each day.
My promise is to care for dad and others your way.
I wake up and it is another day, a week, month and now a year.
Can I make it another day, week or month that is my fear.
Till I am back home thinking of you again and again I am not fine.
Therapy, group sessions, drugs and pills take me to a land I fear.
All I want is to be in heaven with my mom who to me is so dear.
It is ok to cry, and to wonder why you were taken away.
You were my momma, I love you so much every single day.
