When I'm depressed by dreadful skies 

Your eyes bring sunshine to my life

When all hopes and plans go down the drain

Your courage inspires me to try once again

Even though pain and sickness has come

I will not cower, nor cringe nor run

Together we'll face life's daily fares 

Though yours is too much for just one to bare

Come joy or sorrow, good times or bad

You are the best mother one could e'er hope to have

And when in death from this earth you flee

A part of your soul will stay me ~My poem to my mother during the last year of her life. 

 

Please do not steal this or reproduce in any way w/o my permission- it may be simple but it's my mother's and no one else's.

That's beautiful, made me think of my Mom.

Thank you Izzie. Is your mom deceased as well? Please don't feel obligated to answer that btw.

Beautiful poem.

 

 

Thank you. It's very personal to me and not something I really do (share my thoughts/poems w/others). Maybe it's easier to do bc it's online... Regardless, thank you for compliment. :)
