Mommy I Love You


I know my passing pains you deeply
You look out to life so sadly
The grief at times so overwhelming
The pain of it so excruciating

You smile, you laugh, and you chat
Putting on a façade for others
Because want them you do not
To worry about you a lot

But the sorrow is ever present
In your private thoughts ever existent
I was your baby and so much you wanted
But losing me so young you never expected

Your dreams were of joy and happiness
They were of achievement and success
Graduation, career, family, grandbabies
Not pain, agony and emptiness

But mommy I was happy
Because you made my life special
You were my best friend
My trusted confidante

Yet you were my mother
You gave me life and guarded it
Therefore my passing overwhelms you
You question why it had to be so

Could I not have survived?
Why was my end so tragic?
Yet you trust that God knows best
He alone can console you

But mommy I am at peace now
I know no pain or sorrow
Heaven is a joyful place
I sing with the angels daily

But I know that you are sad
And that breaks my heart
But mommy I did not leave you
I am always by your side

My love will ever surround you
In the memories of me you have
You are the best mother
And mommy I love you

Poem of the Day

poet Sir Thomas Wyatt

My lute awake! perform the last
Labour that thou and I shall waste,
And end that I have now begun;
For when this song is sung and past,
My lute be still, for I have done.
