my mother, my friend

I can’t believe it’s almost been two years since I’ve seen your beautiful face. 

We went through so much together over the years.

We saw many hardships, and we cried many tears.

We fought, we argued, we’d laugh, and we’d sing.

Our last few years together we shared everything. 

I still can’t believe you’ve been gone for so long...

Don’t really know how I’ve remained so strong.

I’ll sure never forget the day that you passed.. 

Unfortunately it’s a memory that will always last.

Some days are so hard because you’re not here,

And then there are days that I don’t shed a tear.

The Lord took you so fast, I didn’t even get to say bye. 

And I guess there’s a part of me that will always wonder why?!

I know it’s something I’ll never understand, 

It’s all a part of God’s greater plan. 

I’m just glad you stuck around as long as you did.

You were able to meet my miracle kid.

There at the end I know it was him that helped get you through. 

Before he came along everyone was so worried about you.

After your surgery I know you were depressed,

And where you were living you were constantly stressed.

I’m so glad I was able to let you move in,

Over those three years you became my best friend.

I know there were times we drove each other crazy,

And many times we were both just plain lazy.

When I was pregnant you were all that I had,

And after I had him even if I made you mad.

You stood by my side through everything, 

Got up every morning to help with our blessing. 

I know there were days you didn’t feel well,

Yet you got up with a smile and no one could tell.

Being at children’s was scary for me and you,

But having you there helped get me through.

When we were finally able to come home, 

You made sure I knew I was never alone.

You helped me with madden everyday,

Until the Lord had to take you away.

I miss you so much, there is no doubt you taught me what life is all about.

I know someday I’ll see you again.

So until then just know I love you, my mother! My friend!
