Writer's Workshop - A Poem to My Mom!!

Mrs. MamaKat, I am back.... I have been a bad, bad student..... but I served my detention and now I'm back for class!!!! (yes, I know...I am a dork...whatever...)

For my Writer's Workshop assignment this week, I chose prompt 4: "write a poem for my mom"..... Mother's Day will never be the same for me...EVER.... I know I have my own children who love on and pamper me on Mother's Day (which I TRULY appreciate); but I still miss MY mom.... I miss buying that perfect card (she was a huge card person...and would spend hours in Hallmark searching for the "right" one), bringing her a little gift and loving on and pampering her..... I.just.miss.her.TERRIBLY. And this time of year only magnifies it 1,000%.


Did you ever know that you’re my Hero?
I hope I told you enough for you to know!!

We had the best kind of mother/daughter relationship
And oh, how you loved me so!!

I could tell you all my thoughts & feelings
No matter how wrong or right they were

You could always make it “all better”
And that is one thing I knew for sure

Even though I am a mother now myself
Mother’s Day will never be the way it used to be

Instead of having a fun day together,
I will be visiting you at the cemetery

I miss you Mommy more and more all of the time;
The pain just doesn’t go away!!

I will hold close the memories that we shared;
And in my heart they will forever stay!!

Melissa- so sorry for your loss. She sounds like a fantastic mother. Can't imagine losing mine-she sounds alot like your Mom.

Their influence will live for many generations to come.

God Bless you.

It is always so nice to hear you talk about your mom. I can tell you guys had a great relationship.

Joy said...

That is awesome that she and you had such a wonderful relationship and you have tons of wonderful memories to cherish.

I wish some days that my mom and I could heal our messed upness but I know it is way to far gone to fix ever.

So touching. Ugh. I'm watching Survivor and bawling, thinking I'm getting a break from it on the commercial, then I read this... I'm a mess! Happy Mother's Day to you.
