Mother Death Poem

I lost both my parents a few years ago when I was only 27. I miss them more than anything. I just needed to vent.

Mother's Day Without You

© Denise
Every day I think of you.
For a brief moment
a smile crosses my face.
My memories bring me happiness
but are soon replaced by sadness.

After all, you are gone.
You are gone.
So the happiness is gone.
Oh how I miss my best friend.
my mother

I wish so much you were here.
You loved me no matter what.
I mattered to someone.
I belonged to someone.
Do I now?
I cry.

So I ask, are you still around?
Are you in the air I breath?
Are you proud of me?
Reah out
can you feel me?
can you see my tears?
do you hear my fears?
my thoughts, my prayers?
I wish you were here.
Please stay near.

I'll ask for a sign
but get no reply.
I don't no why I try,
but I still try.

  • I to lost both my parents in a matter of months! My mother was everything to me and I feel your pain! Please take the time to notice the little things! You write of wanting to see some sign that she is still around! This happens to me all the time I remember reading a poem about "Pennies from heaven" and every time I am somewhere new or confused or just thinking of her I find a penny! It has been two long years since she has been gone but I have saved every penny from heaven. Another sign is sparrows and blue jays they show up at the most amazing times! Think about your mother and what she loved. She is there inside and around you and you to will find connections to her!

  • I just lost my daddy May 25th, 2010 and my Mother July 27, 2010. They have been divorced for 33 years. I was so close to my Daddy and when he took his last breath I was holding his hand. My Mom and I became so close for those next two months after my daddy died and than God took her away too. I'm so lost. I'm 39 years old. My Daddy was 63 and my Mom was 61. Way to young!!

I was more closer to my mom. she practically raised my sister and I and her death is really hurting. my mom was 61 and dad 60. and I'm only 35.

  • I lost my Mum when I was 28 after looking after her for 14 months while she battled stomach cancer, this poem had me weeping with the very first line! It's comforting to know that to feel like this is normal and that I'm not the only one suffering such sadness everyday! Xoxo

  • I lost my Dad to Dementia and cancer in March 2013 and then 10 weeks later I lost my mum to ovarian cancer. I really miss them both so much. I never really got to grieve for my Dad as I had to care for and help my mum cope with the loss of her husband. So when she died it was like being hit by two steam trains at once. I read this poem and it summed up everything I wanted and needed in my life. Xxx
