My Mom's Shoes

Dear Mama, walking and thinking of my childhood days,
waves of memories crashing in, as I hit replay.
You're in every scene, appearing with the morning light.
I can talk to you, even though you're far from my sight.
I wish I could stop these tears escaping from my eyes.
I am grown; it's the heart of a little girl that cries.
Fragments of memories, they seem to spin 'round and 'round
as my heart travels through a familiar stomping ground.
Dear Mama, falling leaves of memories scatter my path.
Start of a new season, running from the grief and wrath.
I hear echoes of footsteps; I'll never be alone.
Your path will be ably tended, never overgrown.
I found your paved path; it's clear, as far as I can see.
Each step a bit easier; you left your shoes for me.

My Mum passed on the 8th of December 2018 by a road traffic accident. I never got a chance to talk to her about anything and at least to apologise for everything I made her go through because of me. I never got a chance to appreciate her for every sacrifice she made for me. I never got a chance to prove my love to her. That pains me every day. I wish I would get that chance just once. God in heaven, I know you know my heart's desire. Just keep my mother safe for me in heaven. Bless me so that I can be a blessing to the siblings she left under my care. I want her to smile and be content from where she is. I want her to never regret having sacrificed for me. Mama, I loved you and always I do. My heart is bleeding each day, for you left me so abruptly, and as life is becoming so difficult for me, I know I will manage because I have worn your shoes, strong and diligent as you are. Thank you for short life we spent.

My mother, my angel, I miss her every day. The pain never leaves my heart. She passed away July 8, 2002, and there has been an emptiness in my everyday life. A part of me is gone, and my life will never again be complete. Never let anyone tell you that time makes it better; time only forces you to accept it. RIP my beautiful mother - Malinda Smith 11/29/46-7/8/02.

I lost my mom on the 19th of April this year after she was sick for a long time, and it's still hard accept that she is gone.
