She's Gone, I Move On - Poem by Paul Sebastian

My mother, she is gone
One who bore me
Her arms lovingly caressed me
At her breasts, she fed me
My mother, she is gone!

She saw to my feeds
Cared for my needs
Firm scolding she did
Molding my life’s lead
Today, she is gone!

Cruel has life been to her
She grew up in life’s stir
Gave herself without a tear
Difficult she was, yet we’d bear
Now, my mother is gone!

Wanted to tell a thousand things
Wanted to do for her many things
Cared for her in her last moments
Between hospital and career balancing
And now she’s no more: she‘s gone!

My life’s flashback, I reflect
Father, mother gone, I suffer neglect
My disarrayed family I will protect
I will strive, make my tomorrows impact
I must move on though they’re gone!

In God’s love, I will trust
Onward in faith I will thrust
In life, I will amend, readjust
Make my life happen, I must
With lessons learnt, I’ll push on!

    A glowing tribute to mother and reiteration of the resolve,
    My disarrayed family I will protect
    I will strive, make my tomorrow; s impact
    I must move on though they have gone
    It is the need of the hour and a gospel truth that Life Must Move On.

    Hats off to you for paying a glowing tribute to your dear mother who did so much for you and who meant so much to you. Now, that she is no more, you have carry on her legacy. Thanks:
    She saw to my feeds
    Cared for my needs
    Cruel has life been to her
    And now she’s no more: she‘s gone!
