Once I had a mother who was very good to me and anytime I was bad she sat me on her knee.
One night as I lay sleeping upon my mothers bed
An angel came down from heaven to say my mama was dead
I woke up to see that it was true and this broke my heart in two so listen all you children and do as you are told
'coz when it's time for your mother to go to heaven you will loose a heart of gold.

I lost my mum 4 years ago when I was 6. I can really relate to this poem because I feel the exact same way. My mum died of a massive heart attack in the middle of the night, I never woke up at the sound of the commotion, my dad just left me to sleep. In the morning I went to his room. I remember thinking, 'Daddy is always up at six o'clock, it is nine o'clock. He laid there his pillow wet and he was wide awake. As soon as he saw me he cried. Then told me... I screamed and screamed and screamed and cried like mad. I just wish I got to say goodbye and if it had been now I would've still been awake to see her one last time. I can't cope without her, she was only 44 and it's her birthday soon. I want my mum why did she leave? I'm only ten!! I wish I remember more about her apart from that to me, she was the best person in the world.

I lost my mom January 15th 2014, to the deadly disease cancer, it was a rough time for my mom, she was very strong in her faith, she never feared going to heaven, but the process in which her journey lead her, she feared. Dying in front of her children, and having her girls take care of her. I'm one of three sisters, and we all walked through mom's spiritual journey, to heaven, we all held my mom, as she took her last breath, and entered eternal heaven, at 7:05 pm on Jan. 15th, that was her mother's birthday. I believe her mom was waiting at heaven's doors waiting for her baby girl, so this brings me comfort, this is a beautiful poem. Thank you for sharing, and allowing me to share our story, in loving memory of EVELENA , our loving mom. Happy mother's day 2014.

I lost my mother February 26th, 2004. I was only 7, it was one night before my birthday(February 27th) I wish I got to say something to her.. wish she was still here today. Her birthday was one day after mine. (February 28th) It's kinda messed up don't you think? Those three days. The end of this month is always the hardest.
