Mum Not In This Life - Poem by Ceri Louise Baylis

There's an empty hole Left behind
Heartache and sorrow are entwined
In every action, thought and feeling I have
A big part is missing since you have passed
Sadness tainting memories with lost hope
Externally showing to all I can cope
To be true to myself I allow myself time
Whist I dwell on the past or write out a rhyme
Thinking over the Times that I would change
A thought keeps me going although it is strange
I concentrate hard on all you endured
That you were surviving life: you weren't for this world
In this life you had given all that you had
and lost so much more especially dad
Without dad you couldn't live life as intended …..
To continue forward with a mind and soul mended
I pray that now you have reached your eternal resting place
And its filled with everything life wasn't and its easier to take.
