Grief On Mother's Day
Published: May 2021
Mother’s Day is a day to celebrate and honor the dedication and contribution of a mother. She is an integral part of her family, but Mother’s Day can be a difficult holiday for many people who’ve lost their moms. It’s a reminder of the void that has been left after her passing. It can be a holiday that’s filled with a lot of grief because you wish you had more time to spend with her.

I miss your face; I miss your smile.
I wish I could see you once in a while.
I miss your laugh; I miss your love.

Newfound heavenly home,
But our Mother's Day is forever empty
A mother's love has no bounds
Even before her child is born.
Everything changes...the way she lives and the way she loves,
Sadly sometimes the way she mourns.
I still miss you
As the weeks and years go by.
I still miss youFeatured Shared Story

I have a special locket that rests above my heart,
it holds your beautiful pictures while we must be apart.
It's my hope that you're still with me no matter come what may,

I loved this poem it made me think of my husband as I had a locket after his passing with his picture and some of his ashes so he will always be with me when I wear it.
As I sit here and wonder how things would have turned out,
Not to have been part of your life was there ever a doubt.
I would see you again, just didn't know when.
A long time has passed, wondering how you have been.Featured Shared Story
Thanks for the touching poem--It has been six years now that I have lost my mum- I think about her every day and I still wish that I could see her for one last time- She was more than a mum...
Even though you're not here,
I wish you a Happy Mother's Day each year.
My heart still aches, the tears still fall.
Just to know your pain is gone,
