I voted for you because I lost my mom on November 2, 2005. Ever since then I've been looking for a poem or some kind of writing to describe how i feel. Today is August 23, 2007 and my mission has ended. Your poem is like a mirror of my feelings. I am a writer too but i couldn't pull myself together to write a poem but thanks to you i finally found one. So i just want to appreciate you and tell you thank you and im sorry for your lost.

My Mother

On April the 6th,
Nineteen hundred twenty five,
Was the day she was born.
The first day my mother cried.

You raised us kids
And always lived right.
We were safe and warm,
Before you slept each night.

You worked hard
All through your life
As a friend, a mother,
And a faithful wife.

You weren’t rich, or poor
Or even famous.
But you did your best
And always loved us.

Life’s not easy
Nor is it fair.
Now you’re older
With gray in your hair.

You have always cared,
And done for others.
So here’s a salute,
To my Mother.

***

Mom made the days bright and happy,
And the sun shone all around.
She made everything cheerful, and on her face
Was a sweet peaceful smile.

On March the 3rd life was not so kind
And dark clouds of death gathered.
But her love brought us days of comfort and joy,
And her life made it all worthwhile.

I just found this site and this is the 1st poem I've read. I lost my Mom in 1988. It was very sudden-no warning at all, and was devastating to us all. She was only 56. I still miss her so bad-it hurts a lot. I'm a nurse, and I've 80 and 90 year old dying ladies asking for their momma. You nvever do get over it.

This was a great peom, My husband lost his mother a little over a yr ago one the same date as yous March 3 2003, She was born April 7 1948. That is just to crazy with the dates how close they are. But I am truely sorry about your Mother!
whitney
i thought that the poem was very touching, i have been adopted and i found out a little bit ago that my birth mom tryed to kill herself, i cryed for so long i dont really know what i would do if she really had died. i mean i dont get to see her as much but it still would of hurt because she was a big part of my life. so i think that the poem she wrote was very impressive and took a lot of of heart~
shannon

I lost my mother this past may,writting poetry about the lost really helped me deal with it,the my father in October,life is never easy and God never intended for it too be and not for us to have changes,with out them,the entertainment business comideans/songs/music/poetry would not be what it is. and reading poetry or listening to songs,watching a program like "Touched By An Angel"Anyway Thanks Melton for sharing your poem! Your poem and poetry by many other people who read them here and where ever eles,help alot of people grive.
