Mourning Poem

For all who have lost a mother, my heart goes out to you. My mom passed away from cancer Sept 2, 2012. I wonder if my heart will ever stop breaking. Her pictures are in my locket and I wear it every day. She was a wonderful mother and I miss her more than words can say. I know she is with the Lord now and not suffering anymore and someday when God calls me home I will see her again. God bless.

I loved this poem it made me think of my husband as I had a locket after his passing with his picture and some of his ashes so he will always be with me when I wear it.

The Locket

I have a special locket that rest above my heart,
it holds your beautiful pictures while we must be apart.
It's my hope that you're still with me no matter come what may,
so I know that I can talk to you every single day.
When I walk into a storm you're watching over there,
guiding me to sunny skies with tender loving care.
I'll never have to be alone you're always next to me,
you show me love in different ways the eyes could never see.
Your spirit fills my soul with love beyond any explanation,
with pride I'll wear it every day in total admiration.
Of the woman who changed my life and patiently awaits,
arms wide open to welcome me when I reach heavens gates.
It's never really good bye if in your heart you do believe,
a mothers love is endless, and never ever leaves.

             
                        In memory of Shirley A Fowler
