Mommy

As I sat watching by your bed,
A million thought ran through my head.
Of just how much were you aware?
Did you know that I was there?

Could you feel the love I sent,
In whispered word, Or prayer bent?
Upon my cross as I asked God,
To spare your life for my selfish cause?

So that I could tell you just once more,
"I love you Mommy! " as I had before.
And we could chat like days of old,
Over coffee cups all rimmed with gold.

And laugh and joke, or just to share
some small hurt and perhaps a tear.
To talk of the past, or things yet to do.
To sniffle, and sneeze, and say "Bless You! "

All these dreams now hang in shreds,
As I sit here with bowed down head.
And ponder on these sad thoughts.
Just to wonder, "Was it all for naught? "

Your poem brought tears to my eyes, I can't even begin to imagine how you must feel, but it takes alot of guts to write such a touching poem after a tragedy like that, really sorry, LUVED the poem!
Amber
I really like this poem. I lost a lady that was like my mom a week aga today. I really miss her. but all I can do is keep my head and realize that she is in a better place. So that is all you can do is keep your head up and realize that she is in a better place and that she is not suffering anymore. But always remember she is always with you.
Mary
I give this poem the highest grade you can give. It really hit home. I lost my grandmother 3 months ago. The words Lisa wrote, well, I couldn't have expressed them any better. Thank you
sarah
I think that was a beautiful poem. I personly never lost my mother, but I don't know what I'd do without her. I've lost other people in my family. And most of my family is sick or dying of something. It makes you think of how people take others foregranted. They never see it coming, so afterwards they feel guilty. I hope your mom gets better. God bless.

Just five years ago when i was only nine years old i watch as i called 911 my mother die. I didn't have a father and my sister was meantaly challenged. I was taken away by my sister, and from all my family members. SO i can understant this poem probably better than everybody. I think that this poem is great and really touched me. Thankyou for writing it.

I lost my Mum too. and she was ill for quite a long time. cancer killed her. and I watched her dying, day by day. and in the end only her eyes were alive. but she couldn't speak. she couldn't move. it haunts me today. not knowing if she was aware of anything. of me.

I do not no what it is like to loose a parent. But just last week i went to a friends mothers funeral it has touched me so much and made me be thankful of what i have and the pain that everyone else has gone through.

This brought tears to my eyes. I lost my mom from breast cancer on Oct 22, 2002. I took care of her when she was sick, and I know the feeling of wondering if she knew I was there with her, but I think even though she coudln't tell me that she knew, she did.
sarah
Your poem is great. It brought tears to my eyes, I know the feeling. My Mom died almost 4 years ago when i was 13. And at times I still cry. You will never get over the fact that you lost her. And remember your not alone. And if you need to cry then cry, its a good thing. cause tears are upspoken words. I loved your poem. I hope you write more. its very moving.
