This poem is very inspiring to everyone. I lost my mother 2 years ago 8-21-00, It is very hard to lose your mother. Those of you who still have your mother still with you, give them a hug, & kiss them everyday, an let them know just how much YOU LOVE THEM. Becouse, once there gone they are gone.

Well, this actually hasn't been my experience, but my best friend just lost her mom over cancer and everything you said in this poem I saw in the eyes of my best friend and her thoughts. It really put into words how she felt and how I knew she felt.

josephine
i have just lost my mother 3 days ago.and like the poem i too sat at her bedside wondering if she was aware that i was there with her through it all this poem was an exact summoning up of how i felt
Gwen
This poem is wonderfully written! I am so sorry for your loss! I know how much it hurts to loose someone that you have lost so dear to you. My Grandfather died of cancer 16 years ago, but it always feels like yesterday. I watched him day by day slowly die. I don't think that there is anything in life as hard as death. Poems are the key to your heart. If what you write is how you feel, you can never be wrong.
Missy
very nice! I lost my mother back in January, and it still hurts BADLY in November!
leeanne
Excellent poem. I lost my mom almost 2 years ago. I was at her bed side when they took the life suport off of her. She was only 42 and to this day, I still have dreams of that day.

I am very fortunate to still have my mommy by my side, but I too am a mommy of a 10 year old daughter. I just couldn't imagine her feeling this way when I pass on. So I now am going to spend my days with her like they are my last. Your poem was so inspiring and touched me deeply. My prayers and thoughts are definately with you.
Becca
that was very sweet and i just wanted to say that i just lost my grandma which i can say my mother 2 months ago and it feels like it was yesterday when we were just laughing i'm sorry
Sherry
I just lost my own Mom (Heather) to ALS on July 29/00. I was by her side while she died and am honored to have been there as her daughter, caregiver and friend. I miss her so much and am having a hard time realizing my grief. We shared many a cup of coffee together and laughs and problems/life. Just when I need my Mom the most and she isn't here for me. I feel abandoned and don't want to go through with this grief. I needed a poem like that to help my tears come out, thanks! Sherry

Mommy was a very good, very heart felt poem. I recently experienced the loss of my grandmother and was there at her death bed. Everything the author says here was what I was feeling at the time. My best friend also lost her grandmother 3 days ago to cancer and thought she would appreciate this as well. As would her mother and mine. This poem is very well written and speaks to you. I'm sorry for her loss, as well as all of ours and every one elses.
