Mom is a pretty small word,
but oh how it hurts me when its heard!
You see my mom, she died,
you can never know how i cried.
I can never forget when i got the call,
he said its your mom, I grabbed for the wall.
I said please tell me how bad is it,
he said come get the kids, cuz here they sit.
I hit my knees and prayed to god, dont let it be
real,
the whole way there i made him deal after deal.
Please God let her be ok,
Please dont take her home today!
I  picked up the kids and asked him please tell
me,
How bad is it, with the tears in his eyes he said
you see,
She didnt make it, shes gone, I hit my knees
I cried and cried while i looked for my keys.
I have to get to her and she will be alive,
but how in the hell am i supposed to drive.
We got to the hospital and i seen my brother,
he shook his head, I said no not my mother.
I said please God she was my best friend,
I am praying to you please dont let it end!
I need her here with me,
there is so many things i want her to see.
My son he cries he needs his grandma,
who else can he call his Nana?
I need my mom God cant you see,
why oh why did you take her from me?
She left so many family and friends,
and way to  many loose ends.
I never got to tell you goodbye,
please mom hear my cry.
I love you and i miss you more then you know,
I never wanted to let you go.
They tell me God needed more angels for his
choir,
and with that voice and angels wings you will
sore higher!
You will never know that i am so alone,
or how many times i reach for the phone.
A year later, God said one more thing,
he took home Allen and gave him his angel wings!
He knew you two couldnt be apart,
its hard to deal with a broken heart.
I still have so many tears to cry,
so many unanswered questions of why did you die.
So now here I  sit, realizing it was fate,
I know you arent crying because there is no tears
past the gate!
Because you know that one day we will be
together,
and then this time it will be forever.

I feel for your loss.  My mom died when I was 2 1/2 years old.  I know all too well the questioning that comes with the loss of a loved one "why me?  why her?" Yes, it does get easier, eventually.

 It matters not how strait the gate;
How charged with punishments the scroll;
I am the master of my fate:
I am the captain of my soul.
--W.E. Henley

I like your poem...I know your sadness....Iknow it's hard....but the souls of those we love never dies....they visit you often...in your heart and in your memories....always there....I know...I visit my parents in memories and smiles frequently......it's not a bad feeling, and, it's all I have.....and hope to see them again...I will.....you will too!

Cokey -

My heart is with you.  No, it doesn't get easier ... I'd like to tell you that it does, but ... what does happen is that we begin eventually to see the importance of the thoughts we have of those we've lost.
If they weren't important ... we'd have no need to remember ..... so the more we love them ... the more it hurts.

God be with you in the remembrance of your loss.  Continue to write your feelings.
Continue to remember ........
Love ~Marge~

Time is a source that can help but not heal the loss of a loved one.  Please believe me when I say that in time you'll be able to cope better, understand more, and overall you'll get a sense of peace in her memory.  God bless!

 Open arms can be the most fragile in the world...

Time does not, I believe, heal all things - this is most touching and thankyou for sharing your pain - you are safe to do so here any time.
