Mother's Day Alone Again Poem by shirley hedrick


How well i remember last mother; s day
I went to bed at 6.pm, I was alone again,
I tossed and turned wondering
if next years would be the same
I finally dozed off and didn; t wake up
til 7.am the next day

Once again mother; s day has come
and gone, , I was alone again, For
the past five years it's been
the same, Alone again
No one feels my pain or
hears me cry in the night
Oh, how wonderful it would be
to spend one holiday with the one i love

I pray to God when the next holiday comes
I won't spend it alone again
Of all the holidays i spent alone
Mother; s Day is the sadest one
