Mother Death Poem

Remembering And Missing Mom

I lost my mother just over 10 years ago. I've since had 2 children, and I find I'm missing my mum more and more as they grow up and remaining family has little or no interest in knowing them. My mother would have loved them; she was the glue that kept our family together.

I Remember You

Published: May 2018

A moment passed, an hour, a day,
But still the pain didn't go away.
A week, a month, and then a year,
Yet the loneliness didn't disappear.

The years rolled on and life did too,
And my thoughts often return to you.
Though I accept that you cannot return,
My pain, though dulled, continues to burn.

Like something broken that can't be mended,
My life feels like it's been upended.
I miss you now as I missed you then.
My mother, my confidant, my friend.

And as I watch my young sons play,
I wish you too could enjoy this day.
They cannot miss whom they never knew,
So I miss you more as I remember you.
