Writer's Workshop - My Mom!!!

When I read MamaKat's writing assignment prompts, it made me kind of sad.... every prompt has something to do with a mom. And even though her prompts were to write about different aspects of our lives and/or our moms; it's still just the thought of HER that makes me sad. She.is.not.here. She was only 52 and she should be here!!!!
Anyway- I chose to write a poem to my mom.....
:)
I can't remember the time I first felt your loving touch
But it was from that moment on, I know you loved me so much
-
I always say, you were more than just my mother,
A confidant, a comforter, a friend like no other
-
You were so strong and fought so hard, it sucked to see you in pain!!
I hate that cancer took you from us and that I will never get to talk to you again!!
-
It was because of YOU, that I am the woman I am today!!
I hope I make you proud; and that's all I have to say!!
I love you and I miss you terribly mom.... it doesn't get any easier not having you here with me!!!

I couldn't read this, i have to be honest. After the first line she was 52 she should be here I had to just scroll to the comments before I end up in tears.

Time makes it harder. I'm sure you've read my post to my mother back in Septmeber.

I am so sorry you ladies lost your moms. I cant' even imagine the pain! I had a hard time reading this because I have a friend who is also a mother battling cancer.

Beautiful post and tribute to your mom!

What a lovely tribute to your mom. I can certainly tell she was a good woman and friend just by the words you use whenever you talk about her.
