Lonely For Mom

There was one a person who made me feel safe
held my hand when I began to fall from grace

This person was my mother she's the one I miss
she brought me love and endless happiness

On November 11th 2001 you died leaving me all alone,
oh God how I cried

Why did you have to go please tell me why?
now I have to drink and do drugs just to get by

I wish you were here mom I miss you so much
no one even knows what I would give for just one touch

Why does everyone else get to have there moms near
do they know I'd give anything to have my mother here?

I'm sad and lost mom will you help me find my way?
will you get rid of the tears I cry each day?

I know the answer and the answer is no
cause for me to move on I have to let you go

Mom I love you and thank you for all you did for me
and I hope someday I make you proud for whatever comes to be

For all those that have a mother please hold her tight
and never say you hate her even when you fight

For you never know when she might have to go
and the pain that it brings ..... I hope you never have to know!!

I can't explain how much this poem describes me. My life has sunken into a dark hole since my mom passed in 2007. I know it's been almost 7 years, but in that time, I've become divorced, distant from all my family and friends. I feel I'm about to lose my children too, because I can't let go, and I'm always so angry. It scares me, because I find myself thinking more and more, almost on a daily basis, about driving my motorcycle into a brick wall and just letting go. I need this. I've held on this long because of my girls, but I just don't know how much longer I can last. So many people have hurt me lately, it just compiles......

Most touchy poem I've ever read. I m 20 years old. I lost my mom on 11 April 2014 due to cancer. I saw her in a pain that was intolerable but she fought as more as she can just for me. She was my everything. My dad died when I was only 4 since that day my mum lived for me like a superhero. She was like god to me, she was my best friend, a great supporter. I know now she's in heaven because she deserves to be live there. I just love her more than anything and I badly miss her.

I lost my mom on July 23rd 2011 at 93 years old. She was in a nursing home for 3 months, 3 weeks when she fell from a standing height and broke her hip and went to the hospital for an operation and died a week later of complications of a fractured femur. Before that she was taken out of the house against my will on February 19th 2011 when some one called the ambulance and had her taken to the hospital when she had an anxiety attack. Anyway I was her caregiver, I did everything for her, cook, clean, did her banking, picked up groceries for her. We were very close we had a lot of good times together and am alone now and I miss her terribly, I live in the house I lived in since my birth and in the process of getting the estate closed, I inherited the house but am going to move into an apartment once I get on my feet, so I know the pain of losing a mother. My heart goes out to you.

I was 25 when I lost my best friend!! she was a young 44 year old MOTHER of 2 and Grandmother of 2. They say she was taken due to natural causes, But at 44 that is not natural. Yes she was ill she turned ill at the age of 14. But she was a fighter, The strongest I have ever seen. To have Lupus, MS, Diabetes and other problem. That did not stop her from having a family and putting her family before her own needs. The date July 31 is one of the most saddest day in my life. They say time heals everything. Thank must come from people who have to not lived the pain of losing your best friend. This poem helps me to cry the tears I need to cry to help me get past that sad day. I think of her daily and I cry daily. And I cry today as if she past away today. She passed away July 31 2001 and I am still not healed. But knowing I am not alone helps a lot. Thank you for sharing this poem.

I just lost my mom 3 days ago because of Cancer. I still can't believe it and feel numb. I am 28 years old and living in Australia while my mom passed away in California. My sisters were there during the past few weeks when she was in the hospital. I tried my best to go there but I could not get the US visa last week as I am not American and I am on bridging visa in Australia. I lost my dad because of cancer 5 years ago and after that was in touch with my mom every day. I saw her last Christmas in Australia for a month and she was so happy. This poet is every one's feeling who lost their mom. There will be nothing in my life that can be the same as her. Mothers are purely angles in the earth

I just lost my mom 3 months ago, her death was sudden and a shock to us all. I'm the one who found her, and what hurts ms the most is we had a huge fight just a few weeks before she died. A very ugly fight, where we both said extremely hurtful things, I hate you was one of them. I live each day wishing I could take all those things back, I wish my days with my mom were ones filled with love and happiness, I miss her so much, I hurt every day. I want her back!

I was 15 years old when I lost my mom who was battling cancer for 8 months. She lost the battle and is heaven with no more pain and suffering. It was October 17, 1980 and the pain I feel never goes away. She was only 35 years old and had a Heart of Gold and everyone she came in contact with loved her. She missed out on so much, marriages/divorces of her children, births of her grandchildren, etc. It's been a rough journey without her and it's made me a stronger person knowing she's always in my heart and soul. I will never forget you mom and I love you so much. Recently, I've had a best friends 18 year old daughter commit suicide in March and my niece last Thursday committed suicide she was only 17 years old. I only wish they knew that things always get better no matter how bad you think things are and they didn't understand that there are people they could have talked to and that tomorrow is another day. They are now resting peacefully and I will miss them very much.

My mother was the victim of domestic violence. It was something that a 5 year old boy should not see and unfortunately that wasn't the case. I'm 42 years old now and I still long for those moments that were missed throughout my childhood. I live with vague memories that continue to fade more and more as the years pass. Someone encouraged me to start a page on Facebook which I have done and hopefully it will attract others like "us" who have lost their mothers. http://www.facebook.com/ThatsMyMama

I lost my beautiful mum 8 months ago, my life has not been the same since she was not just my mum she was my rock my world ,my friend my counselor and teacher. She raised us four kids on her own and I will never be the mother she was. She was there when my kids were born and there when I was raped to help me through it. I will miss my mum always. I can't cry for her as I can't accept it and this is making me very sick but this poem says it all for me. thank you

Hi,
I lost my mom 2 months ago, On the painful night of Feb. 08, 2012, The pain of loosing her never goes away, silent tears still fall from my eyes. Her dearest memories remain in my heart and I cry everynight, I read this poem, touches my heart, I can't imagine how hard it would have been for you when you lost your mom at the age of 17, I am 33, and feel I lost the world of my life. P.S my message for you is not to do drugs, instead do look at the sky everynight and tell your mom that you love her. Because, you want to make your mom proud at you by not doing drugs or getting on wrong track. Everynight, I look upon the sky and look at this special star thinking in my head that's my mom, I look at that star and tell my mom I love you and miss you everyday, I tell her I miss talking to her, I miss her smile, and wishing to be with her soon. But, until then I will make sure I would stay away from drugs or any thing that would stop me from meeting her again in heaven! love Shelly

I just lost my mom 5 days ago and all I was wanting to do was find a poem for my mom and when I found this I started to cry because I feel lonely without her by my side. I didn't have to do drugs to get her out of my head all I needed to do was turn to God...and I know my mom would be very angry at me if I did any of that. She got to see me get married have my first child ......and I love her so much n I know she knows that........love you mom your baby girl "monka"

I know this exact feeling my mother what murdered when I was 14 and I'm now 21 and it still has me thinking what the hell can I do with out my mum here. There is nothing anyone can say do to make her come back or make things right but it's like a piece of your heart has broken and it is always going to be there no matter what.

I liked your story I lost my mom recently. I'm 14, she died May 5th 2011, she died of an overdose with drugs and mixing alcohol and stuff and if you have to do drugs to get by be very careful. I'm only 14 and I do drugs and I think to myself everyday I'm disappointing my mom because she wouldn't have wanted me to do the same things she did and I miss her more than anything. I never knew if she would just leave one night and not come back. I knew something was wrong when I woke up and she wasn't there. I just miss her sooo much and I know how you feel but there's not one day that's goes by and I wish I can see her face just one last time so I can tell her I love her

I was very shocked to find this poem I thought I was reading about me the only difference was my mom died September 29th 2001. I also was 17 and just like you that's how I've felt. Today is her 10 year anniversary and it still feels like I just woke up and was told. It will always feel just like it happened yesterday. It feels nice to know someone else knows exactly how I feel. Cause no one else can understand until it happens to them. I'm sorry for your loss too. Thank you for posting this now I don't feel all alone. Xo

Wow I really feel for you. I'm older than yourself but your poem touched my heart and I cried. It says it all I lost my mum Oct. 2010 and still feel the intense pain some days I get by but other days I just break down and cry. People say it gets easier. When, if ever it does, that time hasn't come yet. I also lost my dad 6 months after my mum. We will never get over the fact our mums have gone till we meet again. Hope you have made your mum proud. All the very best.

You're not alone and I know how it feels. I lost my whole family at the same time. My mom, dad, brother and sisters, they all left me alone in this tough world. I tried to be patient and wait hopefully one day they will just appear in front of me, esp. my mom. I miss the moment when she hug me and do things that no body could do. I miss her warmth. And I agree with you. For those who still have parents, please be nice to them. Even they annoyed you or bothered you just love them and be with them.
Please stay strong and remember you're not alone. Everything happened because there are reasons for it. Let's fight together! :)

I know exactly how you feel I was 17 years old when I lost my mother it was the hardest most devastating thing that ever happened, I did not know how to live with out her. it got a little better over the years I am 25 now. and I still think of her more than anything. I wish sometimes that I could see her, hear her, smell her one more time. it still is a struggle, but I manage. if you ever need someone to talk to I will always be happy to listen.

I can relate to this story because I know what its like to loose a parent I lost my dad in 2000 and every day of my life I wish he was here, he's never met my kids or my husband and so when I married I never had a big wedding only cause he wasn't here to walk me down the aisle anyway the pain that you feel when you loose a parent is not anything I would wish upon someone its just something you don't want to ever experience so until then don't ever take your parents for granted.

I'm so touched by this poem and can't help it but cry. I lost my mom when I was 18 years and that was 4 years ago but everyday it feels like it happened just yesterday. I know what you're feeling even now I'm writing this in tears, because loosing a mother is the worst thing that can happen to a person and every day I pray for the impossible, I pray that this is all a dream, I can just wake up and my mom's death was just a bad dream.

Your poem was so very beautiful. I am in tears. My mother died 11th of August 2000, it was 9 days before her birthday. Last time I saw her was 8 years before that. I couldn't even go to her funeral because I couldn't see my father without wanting to kill him, because he molested me as a child. Fortunately I still had phone contact thanks' to my surrogate mother who also got to know her over the phone.

I was so touched by you poem, but also want to encourage you. I am a mother myself, who lost my precious sunshine son on 7 September 2008 (he was murdered). I will be praying for you that you would get the strength to beat the drugs, because I'm sure that's what your mom would have wanted for you and to be proud of you. Good luck and God bless.!

Stephanie:

I thought that your poem was touching.
It will be 24 years this Saturday that my mother passed away due to a brain tumor. Not a day goes by that I don't think of her. She was sick for a long time and watching her suffer, especially toward the end, was difficult for me.

Do me a favor, take control of your life; it's not worth it to let yourself go; you'll only hate yourself for it.

It is so touching! It must have been so hard. My mom was holding my Grandma's hand when she died of breast cancer, but I've never really had to experience something like what Stephanie experienced. I'm feel so sorry for you, but I know I'm not your mom, but please don't go on drugs it the worst thing you can do to yourself, honestly!

This poem brought tears to my eyes, I am sixteen now, but my mom passed away when I was twelve, even though it was four years ago since I saw her face, the pain still never fades away. The intensity decreases, but it never fully goes away. I would give anything just to see her one last time. She was my best friend, and it's so hard to remember much, but she was such a great person, she made everyone laugh and feel safe. Even though, our mothers are gone, their memories will forever stay within our hearts<3

This poem is amazing, it made me cry cause I know how this girl feels, I lost my mom almost 3 years ago to cancer and its the hardest thing in the world to go through, there's not a day that goes by that I don't think about her and how much I wish I could of had more time with her, for those of you who are lucky and have your mothers. Make sure you tell her you love her everyday because you never know when it could be the last day you have a chance to.

I know how you feel and I feel exactly the same way I had to watch my mom die for 8 months. Her blood sugar dropped and she went brain dead but we didn't know that for the first few months. It was so hard to let her go especially to be the one to say ok I have to let her be in peace and pull the plugs. She was just suffering and I sat by her side for 16 hours after they unplugged the machines and watched her take her last breath. It was the hardest saddest worst feelings I have ever felt I know how you feel and I'm sorry

When I was 3 I was crying in the back seat of the car in my car seat cause my brother had not given my toy back. My mum turned around in the car while she was driving and she crashed in to a big truck that was on the other lane and now my mummy is dead thanks to Me and my brother for fighting. Now I am 10, I go to bed every night praying for my mum to come back so I could meet her just once, and I am a foolish child for not been quiet in the car. So here's some advise be quiet in the car so the driver can concentrate.

Hi,
I know how you feel I didn't lose a mom or a dad I lost my uncle I can't say I know your pain because I don't. But every time the phone rings your heart stops. I do feel really sorry for you and I wish you could see your mom one last time because when my uncle passed in March. I cried and cried and I know not even 1,000 tears can bring him back but I really want you to know that you do have people here for you. So get off the drugs and beer and look in the sky and tell your mom you love her because I look in the sky and tell my uncle I love him each and every day.

Hi,
I can't seem to stop crying. In fact, I stumbled upon this page because I was crying and lonely and I googled "death mom lonely".
My mom died when I was 17 too... 25th November, 07. And I am missing her so much. I would give the world to just be able to hear her, feel her near me once... just once. Please, God.

My dear precious momma passed away January 24 2010. I can't picture my life with out her. I hate it when people tell me it's gonna get better but it's not because I'm always going to have her on my mind and it will stay that way. When I read these poems it just breaks me down bad. You should listen to the song First Lady-Missing you. Take Care I know your mom wouldn't want you to do drugs nor drink so that would be something she would be proud of up there (:

Hi Stephanie,
Your poem is very expressive. I love you dear, as I am a mother of three daughters. I lost my mom almost two years ago this month. So, I understand what it means to want that special "touch" of a mother's love. But please know that Jesus' love is there to heal and mend your broken heart. Take care and I love you.

I managed to get down there only 1 hour before they turned the machines off & I still don't know if she knew I got there before she slipped away. your mum would want you to live your life & be the best person you can & remember mothers always have a special place in our hearts forever & ever.
