Sickness Poem

This is a poem about my mother who has been in a persistent vegetative state for 19 years. There is an almost no chance that she will ever awake from this, so my life has been very hard considering she got sick when I was just about 7 years old and my older sister was my mother figure. She also named me after her and she named me right because everywhere I go they say I look just like her. They say what doesn't make you weak will make you strong. I try to believe in this

In My Heart

© Linda M. Capp
You know I Love You, you know I do.
I just wish you could talk to me like I talk to you.
I know how hard you try to speak,
but those brain cells you lost made your body so weak.
I know you hear me and I hear you too,
Above the stars and even the Moon.
I hear you in my heart and even in my soul
and I'll always make sure you have your radio.
You loved to sing, you loved to dance
and hopefully you'll have that 2nd Chance.
I know your strong but still too weak,
My Dear Mother Please Don't Weep.
I hear you when I'm down more than any time,
your saying "Linda, pick yourself up and hold your head up tall."
I try so hard to live my life,
but without you in my life it's hard I'd have to say.
Mom I remember so much of you that it hurts to even say,
but at least I have those few memories that I know will always stay.
