Mother Death Poem

Love and Miss You

I lost my Mum a year ago today (19/05/2010) due to an alcohol addiction. This is just something I wrote for her to show her how much I love and miss her more everyday. And my memories are clear in my heart and mind.

In my arms I held you tight
Through the hardest part of life
In my heart the memories clear
Of the greatest mum I love so dear
I held you so close to my heart
Praying that we'll never part
But angels came and took you away
And a tear I shed for your everyday
Now a shining lit up star
My mum will watch from up far
In all the pain I'm going through
Just remember, I'm here with you

  • I lost my mom almost 3 years ago. I'm 40 years old and married with kids. but my mom lived with us until she died. It's still so hard for me. I lost my dad when I was 12. I might be being a baby, I just wish I couldn't feel how I do feel right now. I know it makes no sense, just like this sentence. It's not like I cry everynight, but there are times I still get upset. that is how I feel tonight. I love you mom!

  • My mama just felt sick for a week and we took her to the hospital and a couple of days later about six in the morning my senior sister called and announced that she is dead. Even though I consider myself a grown up, I wept for every minute that it came into my mind. I even accused the Doctors of being the main couse of her death. She is my mother you know? And it was not easy to believe that she could walk herself into a hospital and never return home. I am still confused but I know God is taking better care of her now. I'll always love you mama

  • My Mum passed away a week ago today, the pain I feel is unbearable, no one expected it, no one had chance to say goodbye, she was only 57 and has left me and my 6 year old son behind. All I want is the chance to tell her I love her one last time.

  • It was the 10th June 2013 when she passed...she left 6 sons, 3 daughters and a husband behind as well as other family that are cut up. This is our first Christmas without her we all know it's not easy but I'm the one who has to look out for my 3 little sisters being the ages of 8,9 and 15 years old. I just wish I could be shown the stairs to heaven to say I love you one more time I miss you so much mum RIP my star x

  • I am 18, My mom died on the 6 of November but the pain of losing her still hurts, I look up in the sky to see her, a sign maybe, or a cloud shaped as if its laughing, everyday just to check up on her. I miss her so much, I just wish Heaven had a phone so I could call her.

  • I was 18 when my mom passed away...she was sick about 2 years, hospitalized for 100 days. I always think that "God felt jealous that he not having mom like my mom to take care of him, so he had taken my mom from me."
