Mother Death Poem

I was 18 when I discovered that my mum had cancer. After 6 short weeks she lost her grueling battle, and my life changed forever. Sometimes the only way I can express my feelings is just putting pen to paper and hoping that if at all possible, she can hear the words I'm saying.

They Say Time's A Healer

Published: October 2016

It's been three years since you have gone.
Will I ever gain the strength to carry on?

Life is so cold and lonely.
Sometimes I just want you to hold me.

Mummy, I'm scared; life is moving too fast.
Before I knew it, you were already my past.

How can I live knowing you are not here
To share all the times that are passing each year?

How can I marry and bear children myself
When all I want is my mum back in good health?

They say time's a healer, that all's well in the end.
Well, I'm still waiting for my heart to mend.

Mum, please don't mistake me, I'm not angry at you.
I'm just struggling to see this pain and depression through.

I can't stop time from moving on, although I wish I could.
I just hope that you can hear me, and know if I could, I would.

I will take everything you taught me and live life to the full,
And when I have my own children they will know I was taught well.

For now, the best thing I can do is to live life through your eyes,
Making the most of each day and brightening people's lives.
