The day you died I kissed your face four times.
After you died I held you close to me.
I knew it would be the last time I held you for the rest of my life.
You were so sick, in so much pain;
That is no life.
I know you were afraid to die.
I hope you have found comfort.
Do you remember how I held your hand and lay my head on your shoulder?
Even at that moment I couldn't imagine life without you.
People talk about broken hearts in songs or movies.
Until that moment, I had never known a true broken heart.
Over and over I thought, "How can I live without you?"
I watched you live, I watch you die.
Every day I look up at the sky.
I know you're waiting for me.
I miss you!

Dear Mom I Miss You
