Mama

It's been thirteen years since you left
Yet the space you filled is still here
But the void brought by your absence remain empty
In the silence of my beating heart

I was thirty one when you let go of life
Too early and too soon for goodbyes
Now I'm forty four and I still need your presence
So much have happened in my life without you

Though you're not here in this plane anymore
I know you're watching over me
From the other side
Because a mother's love is forever
That even death cannot severe

Last night I cried, thinking of you
Remembering  you has brought back vestiges from the past
The happy and lonely years of growing up in your care
My mind was flooded by memories
And of our  time together

There is so much I wanted to tell you
So much I wanted to do for you
If only time was a little kinder to both of us
We could have made more memories
Go places together and see life from the same vista

I was missing you last night
I never had enough of you when you were here
But I pray that we will meet again
In the next life
A place of permanence  where there will be no goodbye

I love you Mama

Mom died in 2006 a night after Christmas. It was the saddest day of my life and her death was a life changing moment for me.  I grew older overnight because of responsibility. I took care of my pop till he passed on in 2016
