Fifteen Years

The end of April makes it fifteen years
There have been many joys and many tears
We entered into a world of the unknown
A journey we have traveled together
For the past fifteen years

We have gone through many changes
No longer living adolescent fantasies
We now live in a world of realities
From birth to death
We are lucky to take a breath
We have lived through it all
For the past fifteen years

The birth of both of our boys
Has given us many joys
The people we have become related to
Have made for an interesting crowd
Making the holidays especially loud
We have lived these things
For the past fifteen years

Suddenly our world began to change
Life as we knew it had started to change
One day we received a devastating blow
Learning that soon my mom was to go
again the fantasies are gone
once again reality is born
now she is gone never to come back
the memories of her we do not lack
memories of the past fifteen years

I think her death has been a test
Since then we had to decide what was the best
We have decided the best is yet to come
In the next fifteen years

She is an angel watching over
All our lives as we get older
Helping us get over all our fears
For the next fifteen years.

Maureen

Maureen,

A powerful poem.  I feel your loss and share your grief.  I am glad the poem ends on a word of hope.  I have not lost a parent yet but I did say goodbye to another good friend yesterday.  HUGS for the future......

thanks. I would not wish the feelings of loss for my on even my worst enemy. As they say time heals all wounds. It's getting better as time goes on.
