Missing Mom


I've thought of Mom a lot today
as Mother's Day draws near.
Remembering the little things
I've missed of her this year.

Like how she loved vegetable soup
or soup of any kind.
A yard sale and the Dollar Store;
where treasures she would find.

Slippers made of gold lame and
dusters in every hue.
A simple gift from one of us
no matter what; would do.

I miss sharing life's ups and downs
in her I could confide.
No matter right; no matter wrong
she'd still be on my side.

I miss her smile; I miss her wit;
her humor, and her love.
I miss her but I know some day
I'll meet her up above.

Happy Mother's Day Mom!

    Wiping tears from my weeping heart. To all the moms no longer here...missed each day throughout the year. I totally relate, and just haven't been able to put pen to paper, just yet, to send my Mother's Day card, heaven sent. PEACE and prayers that mothers all be honored. (Report) Reply
