Mahal Kita, Mommasita! ! (For Mother's Day)

Rating: 5.0

I wish I was there every minute
Just to look at you and sit by your side
And hold your hand when the pain hits
and pray that it quickly subsides
I wish there was a magic potion
that could take all your cancer away
If only praying to God and showing my devotion
would cure you, I would never again stray
If I could take back time before this
and paid attention to all your clues

never again would I ever think to dismiss

I know that the very first day that your mother saw you in person, she just held us so tightly... she didn't want to let you go, and time stood still. She always had a perfect day and she knew it could only get better and better if she only stood by your side, held, kissed and hugged. I know that after that moment you never went through a day without saying how much you love her and need her the rest of our life. So strong & so much string attached. Nicely penned! Mahal na Mahal ni Mommasita gaya ng pagmamahal mo sa kanya! A Great tribute to your Mother.

I almost cried reading your poem. My mother died seven years ago and until now I can't talk about her without crying. You wrote such vivid images I could actually see you sitting by her bedside. It is the pain we go through in life that makes us write with so much intensity. I won't forget this poem.

this is one of the most beautiful poems i've ever seen. 'If I could take back time...' just one of the endless list of 'if onlys' that accompanies such an event. Leaves a chasm of longing in my gut. '...I must be dreaming...' that wishful thinking in the face of harsh, unfair reality. '..if I felt the presence of you...' that enduring gift that a loving parent leaves behind. This is so heartfelt and inspired. Brings back memories of what i was thinking when my dad was slipping away. Very nice work.
