I'm So Alone After Mom Died


Published: December 2007

I'm so alone, it's so dark.....
When is the sun going to shine again?

The sky is dark, my world is grey....
When are the flowers going to bloom and make this hurt go away?

My mommy is gone, I feel her presence...
The thought of not seeing her again takes my breath away

The hurt, the pain, I cannot describe....
It's like my blood quit flowing inside

I wake up each morning to begin a new day....
In hopes that this hollow feeling will go away

My thoughts of my Mommy bring happiness and peace....
Then the truth overcomes and I feel so incomplete

I know she loves me and she is free of pain
But I would love to see her again

I'm so alone, it's so dark.......
When is the sun going to shine again?

Thank you for the beautiful poem. I lost my mother on January 2012 to breast cancer that later spread all through out her body. It's been almost a year and I still feel like a zombie walking through this world. I feel so empty, so alone. I have lost every bit of confidence in myself. Even though I have two kids and a husband, without her I am miserable. I pray for a sign, a whisper, a soft wind, anything, anything to show me that she is still here with me. I feel like I can't go on. I'm desperate to be with her again. Oh Lord, please take me to my mommy, let me see her, let me smell her, let me touch her one more time, I beg. I can't go on, my life is over without her. Mom I love you so much. Please come back to me.

This poem, describes my feelings. I am 12, my mother died December 20, 2010. It broke my heart. I feel like saying "hey mom" everytime something reminds me of her... She was that one person, whenever I got stuck in a tree she was there. It's only been almost 2 years but I still remember waking up that morning. I hate " Yo Mama" jokes. I just wanna cry... Just because they don't know the pain! I love you mommy. In my heart forever...

what a beautiful and heartfelt poem.. I can relate fully to the author of this poem as I lost my dear mama Dec of 2010 and not a day goes by that I don't miss her and wish she was still with us...but I have to tell myself she is still with me, she's with me in my heart.. and that's what gets me thru most days, but it is extremely difficult to deal with a loss like this...thanks for writing the poem it truely is wishes..

I really love this poem? Who wrote this poem. God bless the girl who did it. My mom did not really die but I left her back in Africa, now I want to see her again. I love my mom and the girl who wrote this.

Good poem indeed, 5 months after my mum's death I am still hurting inside, I cry myself to sleep every night and it gets worse every day. I wish to wake one morning just to realize that I've been dreaming all this time. I miss her, a good friend, a great mother.

I lost my mother September 26, 2008 also from lung cancer. This poem really explains how it feels to loose your mother. God Bless the girl who wrote it. It is sad but oh so beautiful.
