I Miss My Mother

I miss your voice that used to softly sing my special lullaby.
I miss your hands that used to hold me when I was scared.
I miss your eyes that would bring me to ease each time I stared into them.
I miss your nicknames you gave me when I would act bad.
I miss you falling asleep to your heartbeat when I would lay my head upon your chest.
I miss the prayers we taught me when we prayed together.
I miss our talks on the car ride over to school.
I miss the "I love yous" and "Be carefuls" every day.
I miss the "Good Morning" and "Good nights."
I miss our tickle fights.
I miss our arguments knowing you were always right.
I miss you........the way you once were.

Watching my mother die was a wrenching experience. I still don't have the words to describe it. I have experienced no deeper grief than the day she died, but nothing broke my heart so thoroughly as that week of watching her sick and in pain, fighting, seeming to get better, and then dying. She is always my best friend, role model, and teacher.

I lived in the hospital for three weeks with my darling mum slept on the floor till they gave me a bed. It was horrendous she deserved better. I will always be traumatized how I had to fight to get treatment. Even now I cannot speak of all that occurred.

This poem reminds me of my dearest mom. My mom left me this day in 2007. It's 10 years now, but my eyes well up whenever I think of her. It takes your entire lifetime to get over the loss of a mother. I never thought I could survive after her, never thought I could handle the pain and agony. But life goes on. I feel I have not spent enough time with her, not done enough for her, etc. I sometimes wish she could come and talk to me. I miss her presence. I find it difficult to speak about her to anyone, lest I start crying. I mourn her loss in silence and pray God takes good care of her wherever she is today. I love you Mummy, and you are always there in my thoughts.

l lost my mum in 2010 l was just 16 years and the only child. It was most difficult moment of my life. I left so much in my heart felt like it was being cut into pieces. Everybody expects and tells you it's going to be okay but does it? It doesn't each day gets worse you miss your loved one more and more and you think about them each day. Every suffering and hardship you go through it reminds of them, of how different life could be if they were still alive. Sometimes I sleep swollen eyes asking God what crime did I commit for me to deserve this, is it fair no it's not fair why me? The worst part in the morning I have to wake up and put on that smile that says everything is great while inside I'm dying of the pain of losing of the only parent I will ever have. It will never will be okay to anyone who has lost a loved one we just learn how to deal with the pain and continue to live the life your loved ones wanted us to have. Love you Mom R.I.P

Today's my 17th birthday and my mother passed away exactly 17 days back. I wished she'd come back, it still hasn't been fulfilled. There are so many things that I wished to tell her and so much more that I wish I hadn't. I can still feel her lying on my lap gasping for air and feeling helpless because there was nothing I could do to comfort her. I just want her back. 'Miss' doesn't even begin to cover what I feel but it's the only word I use any more. I miss her.

I lost my mama eight months back and I am still feeling so so sad. Today, it was particularly bad as me and my brother remembered her a lot. It just is not the same when you have lost your mum like that. I love her so much. I know how you feel. I am 35 and I can imagine how sad you are. They will live in our hearts forever.

My mom passed away just 2 weeks ago because of cancer. I miss her a lot. I have so many things to say to her like being pregnant with our first baby with my hubby. I just knew that I was pregnant days after she died. It was her dream to see her first grandchild but now, she can't because she already left us. I really want to hug her for the last time. Now I'm crying..

My mom passed away from cancer in 2004, and I thought that by now the pain would have eased up a lot, but it really hasn't. I am not a young person myself, I am 58 years old, but I still find myself wishing my mom was here to just be able to at least talk to. I cry every night still because I miss her so much. Sometimes I think something is wrong with me. Is this normal?? I feel so all alone. My daughter lives in Florida, and I don't get to see her very often either. I only have one sister, and she is in Pennsylvania. I am a Christian, and am trying so hard to lean on my Lord and Savior, but I would just love to hear her voice or feel her hug just once more. I love you mommy and I miss you so very much.

Unfortunately Debbie, grief is "timeless" and "ageless." If I thought getting older, would ease the grief of losing Mom, I would welcome "old age" with open arms, but it didn't. Here I am 59 and I lost her in 2013. I still pick up the phone, hold down the button and "pretend call." When there's something that happens during the day that I think she'd laugh at..be thrilled to know...I make the call. The world can call me crazy, and I tell everyone I do this..but I don't care, I can't save the world..only me. Call me crazy, and I will laugh and tell the world YES..that I am, and it feels great..better crazy than on my knees..crying and asking when will the pain stop...the answer is sadly, never...I'm OK with that. It only means she was loved...immensely.

I love my mom more than anyone on this earth. She died of cancer while I was studying in medical school. All that pain became my inspiration to work hard to study. I achieved a lot amidst all the emotional and financial struggles that we had to go through. I know I wouldn't be here where I am now because of her. She is my angel and I love her with all of my heart. I still ask for her help and I know she is always there to guide us. I miss you so much.. I will love you forever mama.

I miss my mum she was the best thing for me and its almost been five years hard to believe only feels like a few weeks ago. It's sad when the best things are taken from you without any warning what so ever.

Thank You God for my mother. She passed away and I still tear up when I think of her. She had the toughest life of anyone I've known. Molested as a little girl, she had me at only 15. We were homeless for a part of my childhood and she did things she was ashamed us to feed my sister and I. Even though my mother went through drug and alcohol addictions I think the hardest thing she had to contend with was the constant feeling of not feeling loved. She felt that she wasn't worth much herself and I tried often to remind her how much I loved her. She used to tell me I was going to college when I was only around 10 or so, but we were homeless at the time. I graduated in engineering and my joy came from making her proud of me. Ultimately I wish I could have done so much more for her while she was with me to show her how much I appreciate her. She went into rehab but the years of abuse caused by hurt proved too much. I Love You So Much Mama!

Its 12.55 and I find myself searching the net for comfort I cannot sleep. I miss my mum so much she died nearly a year ago from kidney cancer. We found out a few weeks before Christmas and she passed in February. She was 65 and brought me up on her own which was tough but we had so much fun when I wad little I hope she forgives me for being a horrible teen. I don't know how she put up with me but she did. I'm nearly 30 now and had my first child after she died. Most days I'm ok but other days I hurt so much. This poem is wonderful. Thank you. Mum if your reading this thank you for being so gentle even when I was so spiteful love you mum. xx

I lost my mom 18 years ago when she was 45 years old, I was 14. There are not too many days that go by that I don't think of her. I miss everything about her, her touch, her laugh, her smell, voice... everything...I miss my nickname that only she said, I even miss that she would get mad at me when I didn't make my bed. My dad started dating about 3 months after her death to a controlling high strung woman. They were together until his death in 2009. I'm now a 32 year old orphan. I grieve each time I remember the things she never saw, my graduation, my graduation from university. She will never know my boyfriend (maybe someday husband), and she will never met my maybe children. My older brother is quite angry and we don't speak. I miss you mom.

That was a very nice poem.... I lost my mom on Oct 25th 2011. She got injured in a road accident and was there in the hospital for one week and her brain went dead, so the senses were not working in her body. As I write this, my eyes are full of tears and it's terribly surreal that I haven't seen her for last 1 year. I can go on and on writing about her, she was like an angel, her smile, the care and the protective feel you can get only from MOTHER, no one else.

I miss you , MOM

I am 42 years old and my mother passed away almost 1 year ago. My heart is so heavy I miss my mother with passion. I am the only child and when others had brothers and sisters to play with I had mom!!! She was complaining of a tingling sensation in her hands and ended up paralyzed from neck down from transverse myelitis. I quit my job to be there with her every step of the way and I am so happy about that. People don't understand that I put on a front like everything is ok but it's not, it's hard for me to even see my dad everyday without her. I love and miss her so dearly....

I am 34 years old. I have 5 beautiful children a wonderful husband, close family members, close friends. It would seem that I have everything I need in this world....except for my grandmother...really my mother...1 year ago she fell asleep in death from pancreatic cancer...and it was fast from the discovery to the end...and she was my world...she taught me everything I know...she taught me how to respect others...love myself..my family..but most of all to trust in God for everything...I prayed till I felt like I would pass out for Him to take this away from her...heal her...fix her...but He didn't...and I began to wonder if He was really listening to me...its not fair that my children wont get to know this beautiful person that was kind...funny...smart...beautiful.....WHY. I miss her more and more everyday...I love you Violet..and I will never let you go!

My mom past away 5 months ago on the 20th. Now that she has past away my father is not doing so good. I think of them both everyday of my life. And my daughter was so close to them both and it's really hard on me the most because she still cries for her mama and papa. In 2010 my mother had a stroke and a aneurism. That made her paralyzed on her left side. I was with her everyday till she passed away. She passed away from a coma.

My mum was 46 when she passed away with Multiple myeloma. I was devastated I was carrying my daughter at the time I was so devastated she wasn't around for the birth. 8 years later I was diagnosed with bone cancer just really needed my mum to put her arms around me and tell me everything is going to be fine but she wasn't. I had my elder sister but it wasn't the same. I miss you mum so much it never gets easier. I will miss you till the day we meet again xxx

Mike I completely understand what you feel! My mom died suddenly on August 24th, 2011. She went in for an angiogram and never came home. My mom lived with me for 11 years. She was my best friend! She wasn't old and it was very unexpected. How do you go on? How do you breathe? How do you function? I ask myself these very questions every day. I'm so sorry you lost your mom.

Who knew I would feel this empty without my Mom at such a late age? I spoke to her Monday Sept 19th before her surgery and we never spoke again. It was 2 weeks ago today that my heart sank in my stomach when I got the call. I miss you Mom so much - I cry every day on the way to work and at night when I watch TV. My life is never going to be the same - nothing seems fun anymore. I hope you are happy and pain free. I love you Mom, Love Mike

I miss my mother a lot. She is in America currently to see my sister. It's been more than 6 months. Everyday I cry for her before sleeping. She loves me a lot and I can't stay away from her. Me and her shared beautiful times together. I'm working really hard to get a permanent job so that I can afford a place where we can live together. I'm in office and can't hold back my tears...
I love you Ammi.

My mom lives on the other side of the globe. We can only talk on weekends because she's asleep when I come home from school. I'm 16 and not ready to live without my mom. I tried to forget that I used to live with her, by thinking that I was another person back then. But holding back the longing only makes it worse. I miss her so much. We had some problems before I moved with my dad. She's remarried and the guy has a problem with teenagers, so he was always screaming at me for little things. I was angry and hurt because she didn't protect me. She chose her new husband over her daughter. And when I was little she always travelled a lot, so I rarely saw her. I hate her for that, but I love her. She's my mom. And I feel like something's stuck inside my chest. I need to let it out somehow, but I don't know how. So that's why I'm here.
Thank you for the poem, it was beautiful.

This poem reminds me of my mom. I miss her so much. Losing her to Cancer in 2000 was the most difficult thing I've ever experienced in my life. Unfortunately, she didn't get the opportunity to meet my 3 boys....she's watching over us though. Mom, thanks for giving me your patience, being my one & only true friend and a wonderful MOM. I hope I'm making you proud!!!

I'm 18 years old now and entering university. I'm leaving my home and parents. Since I was child, I remember everything my mother did to me. She taught me almost everything, math, language, my religion etc. She's a hardworking woman. She always says yes although she might lie to soften my heart. We've never been apart but now, I need to pursue my study for my life. I miss my mother so much. I'm typing this while crying.

This poem reminds me of my mom. She was the greatest thing that I thought a mom could be. She was there for us kids growing up. She fought for us and helped up through all are hard family times. However, this all changed about 7 years ago. My mom remarried but to a guy who would change our lives forever. She was taken away from us. This once strong women just basically remarried, moved away and never came back. To this day, I wonder how she is and why she has not spoken or seen her 3 kids. Is this fair, is it real? Everyday I think of my mother or I should say once a mom and pray that she is safe.
