Thirty nine years ago I rested beneath your heart
In your body,safe warm and protected
My conception was a surprized
But my birth was well planned
At ten am,you would enter the operating room

You looked forward the this for so long
Told prior that you could never have another child
You told me once you were in shock at the news
But here I was,and you were ready

I slept peacefully listening to your heartbeat
A sound of comfort and reassurance
Unaware of what the morning would bring
New and bright the day began

My first memory was of your eyes and scent
If I close my eyes I can still smell you near me
Hear your voice and see you
But then I open my eyes and your gone

I remember me in a high chair
You forcing me to eat broccoli
I hated it then,now I love it
I remember the board of education
I also well remember it's sting on my butt

So many memories assualt me tonight
The little things we did thogether
Tha laughter,the teasing time alone with you
Our arguements as I grew up,and love

I remember the love
You gave of yourself to everyone you knew
So tonight Mom,for all you ever were
Wishing with all my heart and soul
That you could spend just one more night with me

Fighting the anger and pain I still feel at your death
Trying to understand why you left me and Daddy
Why was it your time to go
Why your not here when I need you most

So my birthday wish this year is for you
That you know how much I miss you
And how very much I love you
I rememeber you Mom


Let me apologize now for the spelling errors.No spell check on the laptop....sorry.

Watcher ... no spell check needed on the heart. Beautiful. I'm sure your birthday wish will be met. A lovely tribute to your mother.

Watcher, Your Mother still watches over you from above and I'm sure she has a smile on her face knowing what a precious daughter she has. Happy Birthday hope it brings you much joy.

Watcher: Believe me, this is perfect and no spelling checker in the world could make this a more fitting tribute for a mum who was and will always remain wonderful to you...The emotions that sing their way through this "your birthday wish"...brought tears to my eyes...Bless you!

HUGS

We also had the Hand of Inspired Knowledge applied to where our Mom usually thought our brains were at...it worked as well as the Board of Education.

Well done, Watcher, thank you for sharing.

I'm speechless. What can I say but, "Well done my friend"?

Watcher~
I haven't seen you for so long ... you were here the first night I became a member of PiP ...~

This poem is sheer beauty from the heart~

Wishing you the happiest of holidays~
Hoping you'll drop in and leave us another poetic gem~
