About the Poem

This poem is about my mother who died a little more than four years ago. This is poem, I dedicate to her from my heart and soul.

Alive No More

She lies there unable to speak
Gasping struggling for her last
Breath of air.

The disease won -
Her heart stops beating,
She struggles no more,
She is no longer alive.
Her spirit is gone.

The funeral sad - very sad.
Putting makeup on a person
That is alive no more -
How pitiful is that?
She is no longer alive.
No kind of makeup will change that.

People come offering their condolences,
Thinking maybe it will ease the pain a little bit.
They are wrong, so wrong.
No words will ease the pain
Of knowing that your mother is dead.

Your mother the one that gave birth to you -
She is dead.
Words will not heal,
Hugs will not help,
Tears will not bring her back.
Because my mother for
She is alive no more.

A mother's love is so astounding. It touches every corner in your heart. Spiritually you will always share a bond that is like no other and is totally unique to your expiernces within her love.
