My mother passed away on September 27, 2009. Today I was thinking about her and this poem came to me. This is the first poem I have ever written. It is a tribute to my wonderful mother.
Mama I love the talks we always had; Mama you always made my heart feel glad.
Mama I love the ideas we shared; Mama I always felt like you cared.
Mama when the whole world felt like it was coming apart; Mama I knew you would help heal my heart.
Mama the world will never be the same for me; Mama no one can show me the beauty you could always see.
But Mama I won’t be sad; I’ll rejoice and be glad.
For Mama you always said, no one stays dead.
Mama I look forward to again seeing your face; Mama I can’t wait for you to tell me about God’s heavenly place.
