Shaakiera Schroeder Poems
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 ...
Six months, ten days have passed
Yet nothing has changed
Time has not started since that April day…
