In Memory Poem

A daughter looks back on memories of her mother, and hopes that she can give her children what her mother gave to her. She states that as long as her mother's memory is in her heart, she is never truly gone from her life.

Remembrance

© Laura M. Phipps-Kelley
Mother,
as I walk through the journey of life,
I remember.
I remember how you helped me to grow
with love, truth, and honesty.
I remember how you helped me to choose the right path
with values, morals, and self worth.
I remember how you gave me dreams
with hope and confidence.
As I remember,
I pray to be a mother like you,
to shape my children into strong adults,
full of hopes and dreams.
You made me who I am today,
and I will always remember you in life's passings
for no one could touch my life as you have.

Remembrance in life's passing is the truest form of love one can give, for a memory should never die and a love should live forever in the heart of another!!!

  • This is a very moving poem. It speaks not only about the Author and her Mother, but it is the story of so many of us daughters who lost their own Mother, their Best Friend. Very touching.
    Thank you for sharing,
    Laura.

  • I too lost my mother when I was 12 years old. It was so painful and it still is. I am 19 years old now and life is not good without her. I miss her everyday and I think about her everytime. I miss her smile, her jokes, everything about her, especially the unconditional love that she gave everyday. She is very special to me and no matter what I know she'll always have that special place in my life. I want to be the good mother that she was to my own kids. I love her so much.

  • I share the same story too. I lost my mother five years ago at a time when I needed her most, but her contribution in making who I am today made me accept the fate that she is no more. I dearly miss her advice and her honesty in dealing with her children. She never pretended that her children were perfect and had no fear making unpopular decisions for us. She made us men in the most strictest way one can imagine. I miss her dearly. As we celebrate Mom' day, I wish she was around so I could say one more time "I love Mom". A superhero I will forever miss. I will always do what she taught me.

  • Thank you for sharing your poem. I too lost my mom/ my best friend and I miss her everyday of my life. My brother actually found this poem before her memorial and printed it for me because it reminded him of my mom and I.. So I read it at her memorial service and it was a perfect match... Thank you again for sharing.

  • My girlfriend hasn't grieved for the loss of her mother yet. This is because so much has been going on in her life. (divorce proceeding bringing up her daughter etc.) Her mother was taken away from her a couple of months ago after suffering from alzheimer's. Yesterday a photo was posted on Facebook of her mother cremation head tablet where a service was carried out and she didn't know it was happening. She was devastated her dad or brothers didn't tell her. So today I'm taking her there and we are going to have our own little service. The poem above is fitting for the occasion.

  • When I was 12 my mother and I were in a car accident. She was pregnant with my little brother who was to be born in four days, my birthday was in three days. The wreck killed her instantly and when we arrived at the hospital the baby passed. I am 17 now and every day it is a struggle to smile without her. This poem is so fitting, he laughter and smiles will always be a great memory, and I know that everyday she is watching above to protect me.

  • I lost my mother 2 days ago, and I just came across this poem. It is so fitting for my relationship I had with my mother, and she is the reason I am who I today. She raised me to be a strong willed lady, and the morals a Christian should have. I will miss her everyday for the rest of my life, and I am so thankful for the time we had together. I love you Mom!!
