I clearly remember all the details of spending that last night with you in the hospital.
I watched you suffered
as you moaned in pain.
I hold your hand endlessly, trying to ease your pain.
I asked for medical attention
but they did not come up with anything effective.
All I could do was to sit close by, praying for you.
In the morning, you went away and we have to part.
God finally eased your pain
but broke my heart.
Mom, You Taught Me Everything Except How to Live Without You.
I knew that cancer was going to take you away eventually.
I just didn’t believe that eventuality would come so unaware.
Never have I needed to deal with the brutality of missing you when I wake up.
Now that brutality would not even go away when I try to get to sleep.
Mom, I miss you.
I walk along the city streets you used to walk along with me
And every step I take reminds me of just how we used to be
Mama, well how can I forget you?
When there is always something there to remind me
Always something there to remind me………………………………….
This photo is posted in memory of my beloved mother who passed away last week.
The photo was taken in her early twenties.
Although you’re gone, I’m not alone,
And never shall I be,
For the precious memories of the bond we shared
Will never depart from me.
Our love surpassed the ups and downs
And helped us along the way,
And that same love will give me strength
To manage this loss each day.
On my mind and in my heart,
Mom, you shall forever be,
For just as much as I am a part of you,
You are a part of me!
My loving mother passed away peacefully yesterday 26 July 2017.
May she rest in peace in the loving arms of God.
