Gracefully she flowed, entwined
Along her tattered path
Flowing deeply, and wide at times
Others, a narrow wrath
Falling off the cliffs with grace
Alight, she was reprieved
Gathered, she was bound for that place
The river never leaves
Her journey, hard fought, has ended
The bitter tears have cried
Swept away into the ocean
By that September tide
Miss you mom....

This is wonderfully warm and touching. What a beautiful way to describe your Mom's life.
I know she is proud of you and you miss her terribly. Bless your heart. ~L

Beautiful, touching, excellent poem. I know just how that feels. I lost my mom 6 years ago... has it really been that long...

Every time I try to write a poem or song about her, and what she meant to me, I'm unhappy with my words and toss it. Words fail, I suppose.

I therefore commend you for your lovely tribute to her.

so beautifully written and felt, a wonderful dedication to someone who loved you very much...we never fully appreciate our mothers until we become adults ourselves.
