Mother Death Poem

A Child Writes About Her Mother's Death


© Destiny Kendall
Once I had a mother who was very good to me and anytime I was bad she sat me on her knee.
One night as I lay sleeping upon my mothers bed
An angel came down from heaven to say my mama was dead
I woke up to see that it was true and this broke my heart in two so listen all you children and do as you are told
‘coz when it’s time for your mother to go to heaven you will loose a heart of gold.

  • I lost my mother February 26th, 2004. I was only 7, it was one night before my birthday(February 27th) I wish I got to say something to her.. wish she was still here today. Her birthday was one day after mine. (February 28th) It's kinda messed up don't you think? Those three days. The end of this month is always the hardest.
