Mother Death Poem

Time Passing Without Mom Poem

My mother died in a car accident when I was in college. It amazes me how time has passed so quickly, yet it doesn't seem so. I miss her every day and see her in my daughters' faces. I hope she is watching them and smiling!

In a sea long ago I lost my guiding light,
My focus blurred as in the dead of night.

How can time have so quickly passed?
Like alabaster sand racing through an hourglass.

Half my life now lived without her laughing eyes,
Her soft embrace, and her warm smile.

To turn back time is all I desire,
A child's dream with a woman's fire.

I still weep for the grandmother my children never knew.
She is forever with me each day and night through.
