Mommy Don't Go


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

Fields of love,
rain drops of joy.
You hear friends saying,
you're mommy's little boy.
Mommy can you play,
mommy will you stay.
Walk a little straighter mommy,
because you're leading me this way.
Mommy please don't leave,
it's not your turn to go.
I'm sitting in this waiting chair,
praying your blood will flow.
Please don't leave,
I need you here.
So my life,
can be perfectly clear.
Pull through this,
I know that you can.
Come on mommy,
it's mommy's little man.
Mommy can you hear me?
please say you do.
Come on mommy,
I know you'll pull through.
I love you mommy,
nothing is going to change.
Mommy please try,
so my life can stay the same.
Please try, please try!
It's not your turn,
you can not die.
Mommy I love you,
I know you love me too.
That is why you've got to make it,
please make it through.
I've said enough,
I know that you can do it.
Please stay with me,
I know you'll pull through it.

I Love You Mommy!

This made me cry because my mom died when I was 11 and now I'm 13. My dad does not get out of prison until I'm 14, and this touched my heart. That's why I gave it 5 stars.

This has really touched my heart. I am in the same situation. I am 16 and I have two younger sisters and our mother is really sick and in the hospital. She was always there for me and all I ever was, was a horrible daughter to her. All I really want is a chance to change everything I did and respect her like I should have. I just wish I could hug her again and tell her that I love her so much. My sisters still need their mother in their life because I will never be as great as she was. My only hope is that she gets better and my sisters grow up to be lovely women.

I hope your mom pulls through and has many years left to share the things that moms and children do together. I went through something similar, but unfortunately my mom didn't have the strength to pull through. She lost her battle in 2014, and there isn't a day that I don't miss or cry for her. She was perfect in every way. I lost my dad two weeks after my mom. To say that I was angry at God, is putting it mildly. I was numb for months and go to the ocean to talk to them. They were cremated, so I don't have anywhere else to go that gives me comfort. God bless.

Dear Sophia,
We only have this moment to make things right. Hug your Mom now (a hug melts everything in love). Your Mom wants only the best for you and your sisters I'm sure. You, being your best, is the best gift you could give to your Mom. Live your life doing what she would be proud of, your studies, being a good person, good daughter, good sister - a strong kind loving role model for her sisters. Build your foundation, do well at school, have goals and purpose, (read the classics - you learn a LOT about life and how to live by reading the classics and by reading what they mean when you read them). Moms are just one person (once a little girl, once a young lady like yourself). she needs her fine girl in her corner, lending a hand when you can, but getting your own school work, college work, work done - first and foremost. You help your Mom by doing your part and doing it well, for yourself - everyone benefits by your example. Good luck. You girl girl!!! You go young Sophia xo :)

My heart reaches out to you, Sophia. I hope you will have the chance to fix your past blunders. I was once put in the same situation with my own mother. She nearly died. I was upset with her because she wouldn't allow me to go to a friend's house. How pitiful!! She survived, but the memory of the incident still haunts me. Turn to God. He will protect you. I hope you will be able to pass your love and adoration onto your mother before she passes, whether it be it the near future or the distant. I shall pray for you and your sisters, Sophia.

I'm really touched by this poem. Can't stop the flow of tears in my eyes.
But situation is different here...
It's me and my sick wife (a mother of my 2 children)
I'm 35 and she's 50..
I love her so much and I can't imagine how my life would gonna be if ever she will leave me already and our kids. We are already 15 years. And I am used being with her all the time. So its really hard to live without her by my side.
Please God, touch her with your healing hands, please..
I really need her..
I really love her..

and cant leave without her..
