Mom, My Angel


Published by Family Friend Poems November 2006 with permission of the Author.

Mom you're like an Angel
Sent from up above,
With all your kindness, tenderness
And everlasting love.

You have always looked after me
And taught me right from wrong,
And when I'm down or worried
It's always you that comes along.

You're not just Mom but a friend of mine
A friend I can't replace,
And every time I think of you
All I see is your smiling face.

I thank you
allowing me to see these times,
Because if it wasn't for you, dear Mother
I could never write down these lines.

My mum passed away on the 18th of September 2013,
She was fighting Breast cancer for three years! And every time she went down hill she would never give up!! The last time I saw my mum I told her I loved her and that I would see her tomorrow I gave her a kiss and left. The next day my Dad woke me up and asked to speak to me, I went down stairs and saw my little sister come out the room crying, I walked In and he looked at me and said 'I'm sorry mate she's gone' At first I didn't know what to think! I just broke down!! I couldn't believe that I would never hear her voice again!:'(.. She was the only person I would go to when I needed something!! The hardest bit it all was putting my mum to rest!! I never in a million years thought I would be having my mums funeral when I just turned 18!! She only just made my birthday!!:''(.. It's sooo hard losing someone close to you! & you don't realize it till there gone! Rest In Peace Mum

My mom passed away February 21, 2015. She had been fighting for her life for the past 6 years. Sometimes I feel like it is just a bad dream, but it is real. I miss my mom very much. I never got a chance to say goodbye, but I just think of it as my mom didn't want me to see her like she was. I miss my mom just being there and now it's all taken away. My mom never gave up. She kept fighting until she couldn't fight anymore. Sometimes I don't know how to go on in life. I also lost my dad. Never give up. My mom would never want me to give up. But sometimes I become really depressed and then I become suicidal. I hate feeling this way, but I know my mom and dad would not want me to give up. Then I end up in a psychiatric hospital. That can be very scary, but there are people that do care about you. If you think you need help, just go. People will try to help you the best that they can. Just never give up. We can and we will get through this tough time in our lives. I see a psychiatrist that helps me.

My mom passed on November of 2013. I can't believe she's not here with me now. I miss her so much. She was just not my mom she was my best friend. When I need to talk she was here to listen to me. We had so many good times. My mom is now my angel looking down on me and smiling. I love you mom. I miss you so much.

It's been since 1996 and it still hurts as if it was yesterday that I lost my mom from cancer when I was 8. It was a few weeks before I started 3rd grade. There is not a day that goes by that I don't think of her or miss her with all of my heart and soul. When I read this poem it just hits me hard cause I know its exactly how I feel and what I'd love to say to her if she was alive.

I had my mom but she died four days after I graduated from high school. I am a middle child and the day she died I had to become the oldest. My big sister was six months pregnant and only a year and half older than me, my little brother was thirteen. Since my mom was a single mother we had no one to be there for us. All our family had bailed on her so she was the only person we had. My life went down but I had to lift myself up for my little brother. Now I have two jobs, go to school, and take care of my little brother. Although I miss her so much I'm moving on I know she's in a good place taking care of my brother, my sister and me, but I will always remember everything she taught us and thanks to her I am who I am right now.

my mom's birthday was this past Friday and my sister and I have been looking for the perfect poem to write in her card but we couldn't find one and ended up having to make up our own (title is called "A mom for me" if you want to read it). Then, the next day, I read this poem as the poem of the day on my email account and all I could think of is that the writer said everything I would tell my mom if I could put my emotions in words. I immediately called her into my room and had her read it. she thought it was sooooo sweet. I have it saved on my account!!
