Mother Death Poem

The memories of a loved one linger in our minds long after they have passed.

Memories Of Mom

© Melissa M. Robinson
Though it's been years now
since you were taken away,
the memories are still strong
and I wish you were here today.
I can't see nor touch you
so I know you're not here
but I've still got the past
and in my heart you're still near.
I used to wake up at night
screaming aloud and calling your name,
I must of needed someone
‘cause of all my hurt and fear.
If I could see you one last time
you know what I would do-
Release all my emotions
and say mom, I LOVE YOU!!!

  • This poem means a lot, after losing my mom 23 years ago. Even though it has been that long, the pain is still there. There were several times I wanted to pick up the phone and call and she wouldn't be there.

  • This poem brought tears to my eyes. My mother was murdered 7 years ago, and not a day goes by that I don't miss her. My morning routine was to call her every morning on my way to work and now I'm lost.

  • I was reading this poem while listening to one of my favorite songs & I couldn't stop my tears from falling. My mom died due to a car accident. I was 20 that time but for me I was too young to lose her. I used to work as a nurse but after she died I gave up the profession that I really loved. I couldn't handle the stress & trauma. That day, I didn't know that she met an accident going back home. I just found out when she was admitted in the hospital that I was working. It was the most shocking experience that I had but I tried to calm myself as my focus was to revived her but she died on my hands. And 3 years after that incident, I end up to be a useless person. My mom was my inspiration, my supporter, the person who believed that I'm really great but when she died she took half of me. I know that she won't be happy seeing me like this but I can't help it. I just want to isolate myself from the real world. I keep on asking myself why? I don't have a father and she's my only treasure.

  • This poem really touched my heart. My mums been gone 7 years tomorrow she passed away 23/03/2005 due to melanoma cancer I was 13 years old I was very young and that was the time I really needed her just gone a teenager. I went down hill after that I started failing at school started to smoke behind my dads back and drink as well. I miss her so much I didn't have anyone really to fall on at the time as I was the only child I now have a 3 year brother from my dad and his new partner and another brother on the way. I didn't really have anyone to talk to either and I didn't want to talk to my dad because that's what mums are for to talk about girly stuff like getting your first period and going through puberty. It was really hard and hit me real bad I now have a 9 month old daughter that would of loved to meet her and mum would of spoilt her rotten she would of taken her from me all the time to babysit her lol I love and miss mum to pieces xoxoxoxoxoxo

  • Your words of your mom are beautiful. I'm searching for words to express my thoughts about my Mom. She has been gone for 30 years now and I still miss and need her very much. There isn't a day that goes by that I don't think about her. I would give anything for her to here, but it was her time to leave. God bless you and your family.

  • My mother past away almost 10 years ago, at this point I was six years old. I came over this poem randomly, I was listening to really calm music, and I started crying, I just could not hold the tears. in eight days from now, it will be ten years since that car accident. It's very rare to grow up without her here, since I'm only sixteen, I feel like I need her, like all my friends. They ask their mom for whatever. I can't do that. this poem really brought up some memories.. Gosh

  • This brought tears to my eyes. In two months it will be a year since my mom died. I was thirteen, now I'm fourteen. She died from a random heart attack, she was perfectly fine the day before. I miss her so much.

  • I was 19 when I got the call on a Friday morning. We had been fighting for a week, you wanted me to come back and live at home, I refused wanting to live with the man I thought I loved. I learned later, how wrong I was.

    When I got there, the doctor said you were in a coma. Your heart stopped, there was little chance of you waking up. The next morning he would tell me that chance, was 0 now. You were brain dead.

    Four days later, my 21 year old brother, my 22 year old sister and I made the decision to pull the life support. On Sunday, Momma I held you and cried as you breathed your I just wish I could have said good-bye and I love you...instead of those last, lingering, angry words....

  • My mother has only been gone for 6 weeks. I was an only child. Lost my father in 1985 he was 53. My lovely beautiful mum was 79. I looked after her from August until November when she lost her life to bowel cancer. I miss her and love her for always. Christmas is 3 days away. Not sure how that day will go. My thought are with all people who have lost a loved one In 2013.
