For My Mama- Gone But Not Forgotten
Gone so long, but never forgotten
Almost fifteen years have passed
Seems like a lifetime
It is, the good half of mine.
It is the half in which I had you,
Where my days were filled with unconditional love and support.
Even the craziest of my dreams, I would hear you say “why Not”
You were always there…
Ready for anything …
Always there…breakfast, lunch and supper.
We would rush home from school knowing you there waiting, with arms open wide, welcoming us home and thanking God its in one piece!
I remember in those days how easy sleep came after ...
Two More Days
My eyes fall on the calendar
And my heart races…
Just two more days…
Two more days from the worst of so much and
For so many,
Not that anyone needs a calendar as a reminder …
Our fear is our continuous reminder.
As “The” day comes closer, the sadness in our hearts gets deeper…
The pain we have torturously endured for a year gets heavier…
