    Default Wishing all Moms a happy Motherís Day

    Just wishing all the mothers a happy Motherís Day and please please take the time to make a call and wish your mother happy Motherís Day and that you love her very much, unfortunately I lost my mom about a week ago (not from covid19) and we just buried her yesterday, here is a poem that I wrote and said at her gravesite

    When I was just a little boy
    my mommy gave me a new toy
    as I looked at it with glee
    mom had a look that made her see
    what a great boy that she loved dearly
    and what happiness in her heart that showed freely

    As we grow older with our family
    mom showed true kindness with all sincerity

    her patience and love is what she had
    to share with us and teach us to be glad

    It was hard work to raise five boys then
    lots of patience was her message to send

    Our thoughts begin to show
    how much she left behind
    with her strength and legacy
    we come into our hearts to find

    When days go bad
    and I look for inspiration
    her love that she gave me
    taught me my true traditions

    As I look for guidance
    in these rough times
    all I have to do
    is think of my momís rhymes

    As I look in the mirror
    at myself as I see
    my momís majestic beauty
    winking back at me

    As we stand here
    with her blood in our veins
    her love and compassion runs strong
    every day again and again

    Our hearts are heavy
    with our thoughts as we feel today
    but if we think of the happiness that she left with us
    she wonít feel so far away

    But one day
    we will meet once again
    and feel her inner love
    We will feel to no end

    Sorry to hear that Snomoman.

    Focus on the last paragraph over and over again.

    Sorry for your loss, Snomoman. My 92-year old mother was recently diagnosed with cancer. It made me realize that I'm still not ready to lose her, or I guess I never will be.

    Thank you John, dfattack & blkhwkbob for the kind words, it’s been a week since I posted the thread and I have visited it a few times to read the poem back to myself, it seems to help heal me in a way somehow, thanks to all who took the time to read it
    I will send thoughts and prayers for your mother blkhwkbob

    I haven't been on line much lately, nonetheless, I am so sorry to hear of your loss. I don't think anyone is really "prepared" for such a loss, no matter our age. Your writing of such a memorable life with your mom speaks volumes. Nicely done, stay strong. -Mezz
