M is for Mom, Whom I Miss Very Much







     In just a few weeks it will be Mother's Day.  I am not looking forward to it.   This will be my family's first one since Mom was killed in a car wreck last July.  So, in honor of Mom, I would like to share with you a poem I wrote for her several years ago.  Mom...this is for you.

A Mother's Love

A mother's love is like no other;
A power you can't explain.
No matter what the sacrifice
She never will complain.

Her love is everlasting.
You never have to fear.
She'll share your joy, and feel your pain;
She always will be near.

She'll pick you up when 'ere you fall,
She'll kiss the pain away.
 She'll always lend a listening ear,
And know just what to say.

Her tender touch can soothe your soul;
Her smile can warm your heart.
She shares life's special moments,
Even when you're far apart.

There's few things in this world today
On which you can depend.
But Mother's love is certain,
It's a bond that knows no end.


Until next time....that's my view.
Kat

  1. Kat - I am so sorry for your loss. Your poem is a lovely tribute to your mom. My mom has passed three years now and although the mother's days don't get easier, i find that allowing myself to think even more freely of her that week and especially that day is comforting. I try to connect the things she taught me to how I am as a mother and it's nice to see her legacy living on in the things her children do with their children. Blessings to you.

    1. You are very welcome Denine. Even though we know we will have to face it at some point it is a very strange thing to adjust to life without your mom. I'm glad I was able to share with you. Sorry for your loss.

  4. God, how awful. I don't know how you could withstand such a sudden loss. My mom is 93 and even as I know her time is short, I have trouble with the idea of losing her. I just can't imagine my days, my life, without her.

    I remember my first father's day after my dad died. I'ts not easy. Just stay out of the Hallmark sections....

  6. As with all posts about moms I feel your loss. I am so blessed to still have my mom and that she has her health, but I am not oblivious to the fact that she will turn 90 in October and none of us lives on this earth forever.
    The poem is lovely and my heart hurts for your loss. ♥

  10. Kat, I am sorry for your loss. Though I lost my mother many years ago, I still have a serious pang, each Mother's Day, and at other times as well. Sucks to lose people we love, for the rest of THIS life.

    Hugs and healing to you.

    1. Yes, Beverly, it really does suck, but I guess that is the order of life and we must accept it. Thank you.
