For my mother

It is the 11th Anniversary of my mother's passing. I lost her the day before Mother's Day 1998.

For mom ...

Someone still loves you

someone still cares

someone still whispers your name in their prayers.

Though absent,

you are still near and loved very dear.

You shared our life, our love,

hope and tears.

That was beautiful, Pat. It brought tears to my eyes.
I lost my mom when I was just 20, so many years ago.
Mother's Day is bittersweet for us. It's their special day, a day we honor their memory, and love.
Thank you for sharing such a lovely poem.
Warmest Hugs,

Beautiful, Pat. Yes, your poem brought a lump to my throat, too. Big hugs from Vicki

On Friday I attended a funeral service for my friend's husband and this was the dedication to him. I thought it was so applicable for a loved one.
