Mourning Poem

I wrote this poem about my dear mother who died ten years ago. When she died, my life changed forever. I didn't really know why this happened to me and how I lost how to love and smile. I just felt like when she died she took everything I was with her. I hope this poem helps someone.

I loved this poem. It explains exactly how I feel. I lost my cousin two weeks ago, but it feels like it just happened. I don’t have any strength to keep going. It really hurts a lot.

You Took It Away

Mom, I love you
Mom, I miss you
Yet you left me alone in this big world

You gave me life
Yet you took my heart
And died with it

I no longer know how to smile
I no longer know how it feels to be loved
Because you took everything

As I sit here and think was it me
Or was it you
I guess I will never know why
