Mother’s Day Poetry – May 12th 2019

On this day
I see us in our living room
With the sun shining around us
I sit on the carpeted floor
And you on the couch
Watching me
As I talk to my dolls and decipher which outfit to dress them in
I glance at you and we smile
Then suddenly I go beyond my years
And think of the day you won’t be with me anymore
So I start to cry and you are startled
By what I confide in you

What if that day would come
How would I live without you
How would I go on
And you say you will never leave me
And you’ll be right beside me
For always
I sit her here now
With grown children of my own
Without you
And not a day goes by
That I don’t play what ifs
In my mind
What if you met them
What if we built the same memories
What if I came through that door
And you were the one waiting for me on that couch
Watching me
Watching you
The love I have for you sits on the shelf
Revisited in my saddest day
Revisited on my happiest day
I visit you often
Wishing you can witness my life
As I witness everyone else’s
I’m lonely here
Without your unconditional love
Won’t you visit me in my dreams tonight?
It’s Mother’s Day…

  1. No matter where No matter when our Mothers will always be right there beside us !!
    I too feel the loss on each and every day as my Life and My Rock is no longer physically here , but i know she is watching and caring as always

    1. Hi Ron, thanks for sharing your thoughts and feelings, its good to know that I am not alone. There are days when I even drive up to our old apartment just to feel a little bit closer to her. It does wonders for me. Thanks again for being a great support on my blog, it means a lot to me. xoxo
