My Mother

I reached out for your hand today,
only to realize you are so very far away.

I want to hug you,
but your time with us is through.

I want to share time with you and tell you about what's going on in my life.
Alas, I cannot, you are gone and only having your memory cuts as deeply as a knife.

How I wish you were still here,
to hold you so very near.

Oh, how I wish you hadn't had to go.
I love you mom, and I miss you so.
