6 Months......

It's hard to believe that as of Sunday, it's been 6 months since mom passed away. Not a day goes by that I don't think of her and miss her. Some days are easier than others. I don't even want to think about Thanksgiving and Christmas without her. I wish we could just pass right by these Holidays. It just won't be the same. NOTHING will ever be the same.

I ran across this poem in a local newspapers commentary. Another person had written it about his/her mother. With their permission, I am posting it here. Thank you to the anonymous poster who managed to put into words what I feel everyday.

To Mom,

A million times I've needed you,
A million times I've cried.
If love alone could have saved you,
you never would have died.

In life I loved you dearly,
In death I love you still.
In my heart you hold a place
that no one could ever fill.

It broke my heart to lose you,
but you did not go alone,
for apart of me went with you
the day god called you home.

Death will never break the ties
that bound our lives together,
I loved you then, I love you now
and I will love you forever!

God Speed mom. Until we get to see each other again.............. I LOVE YOU.
