Never Spoken

Published: October 2011

The days turn to night
And nights back to days
Over and over again..
The world around seems different in many ways..
This feelings of sorrow I will never
Seem to shed..
Wanting things I can never have..
To say last words in a different way..
To maybe say something meaningful before eternal silence..
What might I have said if only I knew..
If only I knew that the voice would be gone by the rolling of the morn..
I might have spoken these words,
I am sorry ..
I am sorry for the grief I have caused through our lives..
I forgive ..
I forgive you for the much pain you have forced upon me.. 
 I love ..
I do love you for the good person I have seen in you..
And I miss..
I miss you now and I will miss you always.

I'm so sorry you lost your mother Natalie. This poem hit so close to home with me as well. I never had a great relationship with my mother, but all in all I loved her unconditionally. Unfortunately on May 17th of this year (2014) I found her no longer here. She had MS and it had taken her balance and she had fallen. I talked to her the night before and we were settling a fight we had been arguing about for a few weeks. I had the urge to tell her I loved her while I was walking away but she had already shut the door. I never got to tell her I loved her. I know she already knew I did as all mothers do but it's just something that hurts when you don't get to tell them when you don't get to see their face as they hear you tell them those wonderful words that rids the doubt of their parenting. There are so many things I wish I could have told her. I tell them to her now and I don't know if she can hear me or not but I just like to think that maybe she can and that one day when I too leave this body that we will reunite and we will talk of all the things so it will no longer be a one sided conversation. I hope you are doing better and I just wanted to thank you for writing this beautiful poem to share with everyone who might just need to read what you have felt and just have that connection to know you are not alone. Thank you so much.
