Mother Death Poem

Poem About Losing A Mother Is Never Easy

I realize now that only my strength will help me through this. I love you mom.

Not Today

© Nikki L.
Losing a mother, it's never easy.
Losing that smile that was so cheesy.
Losing that hug that crushed your ribs.
Losing that perfume that now you just realized, how much you missed.
Losing those chances to have girl talks.
Losing the chance to regain the strength after a heartbreaking dance.
Losing the chance to learn about her past.
Losing the chance to explain your own twisted path.
Losing the chance to say goodbye.
Gaining the strength to realize it's not the end, at least not today

  • This just makes me feel sad, I am 28 but I couldn't get enough of my mother. I used to rush home after work just to be with her. But after she died three months ago, I still miss her badly and I shed a tear every day. She was a great woman.

  • I also lost my mom on 24th December 2009. This was worse experience I have ever come across, I had just finished my secondary school education and I thought I will stay with my mom for a while before I joined college to assist her on her duties at home since she was suffering from breast cancer, but she passed on, for sure she was more than a mother to me, I still miss her up to day I just feel like she passed away yesterday my memories are fresh, as I write this, my eyes are full of tears.....But since it was will of god I have to accept it.

  • I lost my mother a month ago, it was three days after Easter April 27,2011, when I was on my way to go see her, I had phone call that broke my heart.
    The call was my sister asking me where I was, I told her I'm 5 mins away. I knew something was up because she crying, she then had the courage to say that mom had passed away. I broke down crying knowing she was gone. She didn't get to see the stuffed bunny I bought her for Easter. It was the saddest day ever, I didn't even get to say goodbye. As I saw her lying in her bed, as cold as could as can be, I took her hand into mine hoping she would wake up. I gave her four kisses one on her forehead, one on each side of her cheek, and the last one was on her chin. I then said goodbye and left the room in tears.
    I miss my mom, I miss everything about her, now all I have left is memories n pictures. There is a lot more I could say, but for now its time to pray Rest In Peace mommy.

  • This poem has touched my heart! I lost my wonderful mother in March 2011, killed in a car accident. She just turned 50 and still had a life to live. All because a bus driver was running late to work and ran a red light! She was my best friend and I miss her everyday. I try to visit her every week, but just wish she could talk back. Reading these poems just brings back the best memories I have of her! Thanks for writing something so touching.

  • My mother passed away on January 30, 2011, from congestive heart failure and complications from diabetes. She lived with me the last few months of her life, and that gives me great pleasure that I had that time with her. She was very sick and in a lot of pain. We had always had a close relationship and Mom knew how much she meant to me. I never left her side in the hospital the week before she passed. Loosing my Mother has been the worst thing that could happen to me. And now I have to go through all the firsts. The first Mother's day, Memorial Day, Birthdays, Thanksgiving, Christmas, etc. Her birthday is 11-7 and all I have done is cry because she won't be here. Be good to everyone you know. Tell them how much you love them and hug them till you can't hug them anymore. Hang on tight, because one day they won't be here anymore. Mom I love you and miss you. You had a big, kind, and giving heart. God will make you one of his special angels

  • I'm 18 years old, and I lost my mother on July 16 of 2011 to ovarian cancer. I have two younger sisters: 14 and 11. This poem touched me, because it made me think of them. I had much time with my mother, but they never did. I know that in the future, I'm going to have to be the one to pass down the stories she told me as a child. It just sucks that it can't be her. I miss her more each day, but I know one day I will see her again.

  • I'm 13 almost 14 in less then a week. I lost my mom January 6, 2011. 17 days before her birthday. I have a little brother and sister, 10 & 3. My mom was everything to me. Even though we didn't have the best relationship. Once she started getting sick I didn't go to school, I helped her with my sister. My mom was a hard worker. I could tell she was sick because she wasn't as strong as she was. I regret all the times I said that I hated her and wished she was dead. But now, I need her back. I can't live a day without her. When I read this poem it touched me. It made me feel like I could actually talk about my mom. I can't have any other talk with anyone, besides my mom. She was my best friend, my sister, and my mom. I miss her very much.........

  • It was the 16 April 2002, my mom had been shot and killed by a family friend, she was only 41 years old. the last words that my mom ever spoke to me, were "I love you Pradeen, don't ever forget that", looking back, it's as if she was saying her goodbyes, I never got to say goodbye! I miss her, her scent, her smile, the sound of her voice and laughter, I just miss having my mom in my life! 5 years later, my only other sibling died in a car accident, leaving me alone, miss my mom dearly!

  • I lost my mom in May 2009. It seems like yesterday. I didn't get enough of her. She was strong and very self will. She collapsed at our door steps and she went like a wind. She was 76 and very sober and intelligent. Only God can heal and give strength.

  • I am 20 years old, and just recently lost my mom after a struggle against lung cancer and stomach polyps.. I have a 18 month old son and we lived with her since day one. It is the hardest situation in the world to deal with. Knowing that my son spent his better 18 months with grammy makes my heart melt. <3

  • Hi, I am 41 years old and I just lost my Mother 3 weeks ago. I am having a really hard time dealing with fact that I will never be able to talk to her like I did everyday, being able to hug and kiss her and tell her how much I love her. My Mom was my everything, she fought a long hard battle with many illnesses, but I know that she is walking tall with Jesus and has no more pain, that's a comfort to me but it still hurts me to the core just knowing I can't touch her and that she is gone and that's forever, I can't change that, I cry for her everyday, she was the most beautiful lady inside and out, and Mom please watch over me and my kids and I trust that I will walk and talk with you again. All my love for you my best friend, my wonderful MOM.

  • I lost my Mom October 23, 2011 after a battle with cervical cancer. Even though we knew her end was nearing, nothing prepares you for that final goodbye. Mom had spent time in and out of the Hospital, so even a year later, my mind imagines she is there. The pain has yet to subside, but I find myself recalling her smile, her laughter and her voice and in those moments I am bathed in joy and then the tears flow.
    My Mom had a heart that overflowed with love and as I recall her I hope that I emulate that spirit of giving and kindness. She has joined the ranks of Angels and I am blessed to say I am her child.

  • Hi, I am 18 years old and I lost my mother January 1, 1999, at just 4 years old. She passed in a house fire, in an abandoned house, from what I've heard from my dad and friends of the family. Knowing she wasn't there to see me graduate highschool, or won't see me go to the navy, she won't be there when I get married or have kids is the hardest part to deal with. I didn't have a mother growing up, nor a mother figure. It's still hard, even though I didn't really get to know her. I miss her everyday, and wish she were here, but I know she will always be in my heart.

  • Hi, my name is Amanda. I am only 16 years old. I just lost my mom in a tragic car accident May 15th, 2013 and it's now June 6th, 2013. I'm grieving a lot. I've been researching some tips to help with my grievance but none have helped.. I miss my mom every day. It's difficult to adjust because I was living with my mom. and now I must move from Georgia to Virginia to live with my dad. Life isn't easy right now. My brother was in the crash with my mom. Lucky he's okay he just need rehabilitation. I thank the lord for him. I wish my mom was here..

  • Hi. I'm 24 and my moms got 6 months (lung cancer spread to brain) and I just find it so hard to even sit with her. I hate myself for this, I lost my bro 4 months ago (suicide) and still trying to cope with that and now all this. Just feel so lost, She's been my life and honestly if I could swap places I would. Feel so emotionally inept.
