Mother Death Poem

Poem About The Pain Of Losing A Mother

We decided as a family to make Mum's funeral as personal as we could, about her and only her. This is what I wrote for her, and I read it at her funeral. Maybe it will strike a chord with others.

My Mum


Published by Family Friend Poems March 2016 with permission of the Author.

How hard it is without you, Mum, knowing you're not here.
You gave me life, you gave me love, you pulled me from despair.
You picked me up when I was down and held me in your arms.
I wish I were there right now to feel your loving charms.
You set me free to live my life, but still I could not go.
Our bond was strong, our love was true - and yet you left me here
To live my life without you, Mum, a thought I cannot bear.
I will go on and live my life and try to make you proud,
But doing it without you, OH! I want to cry out loud.
I love you, Mum, with all my heart and know you're still around.
When night time comes, the kids are gone and there is no sound,
I hear your voice say, "Well done, Jane, you've made it through the day,"
But it hurts so much without you, Mum - what else is there to say?
So sleep well, my darling Mum, and rest your weary head,
And know that you are loved and missed by all who knew you best.
Night, night, Mum.
