I'd go to wake
her up.

This is very well written. I really like it. My mother also passed away at a young age, but she never did play dead as your mother did. She was taken away to a hospital hundreds of miles away when she got sick. My uncle took me to see her once in the next month. The next time I saw her was at the funeral. Please see my poem MEMORIES OF MOTHER.

When your mother pretended to be dead, you knew she was just acting! When she woke up from her feigned sleep, you were so happy! But once when you realized that she would never wake from her sleep, it must have been heart breaking for you! To lose a mother at a relatively young age is one of the tragedies of life. The void created by a mother's absence can never be filled by any body! A touching write, though you have treated it in a light manner!
