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.
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......
