The Unhealing Wound

© Leah

Published on June 2008

There is this wound it hurts so bad
it always appears when I am sad
No matter what I do it won't go away
it's in my heart where it will always stay
It appeared the day you left this world
and I was no longer your little girl
forced to grow up with you not there
to make things easy that I couldn't bear
I search for you every day
if I'm sick, sad, or just have something to say.
I'm jealous of some girls,
girls who still have their mothers
I tell them to appreciate what they have,
because after they are gone,
there simply is no others.
I have this pain that won't go away,
it makes me mad that you couldn't stay
No matter many years go by
there's still one time of day that I do cry,
I miss you dearly and this is true,
my wound will not heal until I'm with you

How do I let go of all the things I feel. How do I go on knowing I should of done more. How can I forgive myself for staying away when I should of been with with you more knowing that I didn't have you for long . Was in denial and just didn't want to except that you were dying .I failed you as your daughter in so many ways. And now it's too late. There's no more changes no more time with you. How do I live with all this guilt. I'm dying inside with so much anger with myself. I wish god would of taken me not you.

I just lost my beloved mother and best friend December 15, 2015. I haven't been the same since. The pain is unshakable and your poem means a lot! Thank you! It touched my soul. I don't know how to go on without her, she taught me everything but that. She was 68 and had a heart attack.

My mother just died on June 16, 2015. She was in her 60's and she died of a heart attack. I never got to say good bye and I deeply appreciate this poem. I miss her with all my heart.

My best friends mother was killed by a drunk driver. She was the most awesomest person ever. She was like my second Mom. Now I have no one to call at three o'clock in the morning to ask if everything is going to be ok.
Then about two weeks ago my friend took her life. She was raped. She couldn't take the pain. I was there when she took her life. She did it in the bathroom. I saw the pain in her eyes as I tried to save her. But it was too late. Now she is with her mom, and one day I will be to. But not soon, I have to much ahead of me. but I will always live with the pain of loosing loved ones

My mother was brutally murdered 15 years ago and to this day there is not a hour that goes by that I don't think of her and especially miss her. Your poem touched my heart and the memories I had with my mother. Thank you and never forget the good times you had with your mother! Though she is gone her memory lives on (in You).
