I Miss You Mom

                                                     My heart is heavy laden
                                                     many tears I have cried
                                                     since you went away
                                                     my heart is so empty inside
                                                     You were my guardian angel
                                                     my best and dearest friend
                                                     you taught me lessons to live
                                                     and stood by me until the end

                                                     I miss our many talks
                                                     you made each day so bright
                                                     your courage and cheerfulness
                                                     was a gifted, shining light

                                                     The picture of your face mom
                                                     the memory of your touch
                                                     and so many other things
                                                     I've come to miss so much

                                                    You'll never leave my thoughts
                                                     or leave my heart behind
                                                     I'll always keep you close beside
                                                     and forever on my mind

                                                     Save a place for me mom
                                                     I know it can't be long
                                                     when soon I'll join you there
                                                     and I'll finally feel at home

  1. A very beautiful tribute for your beloved mother. She is truly your guardian angel now.

  2. Oh Susie, this is just beautiful, and the rose is a perfect way to show your heartfelt words. I have been missing my mom lately too, and when I was reading this, it truly reminded me of her. What a wonderful poem this is. I know you miss your beloved mother.

    1. Thank you Sheri.. I feel your emotions.. It is tough on the holidays..So sorry about your mom.

  3. A beautiful tribute to your mother...she is watching over you.

  4. I still have my Mom and even though we live several states apart, I still get to talk to her. I can only imagine. Beautiful poem, Susie, as always.

    1. Thank you. I'm so glad you still have your mom, even though it is across the miles.

  5. Such precious words for those of us who have lost our mothers. I guess there will always be an empty spot in our hearts.

    1. Thank you.. and there's nothing to fill it.. but they are in our heart forever.

  6. Beautiful poem, Susie... my mother has been gone for 7 years now and I still miss her every day... *sigh*

    1. Thank you Paula. I'm so sorry about your mother..Time helps but the heart hurts so bad even though we know they're in a better place.

  7. Hugs to you, Susie. This is a beautiful tribute to your dear Mother. I can understand how you feel. My Mom passed away almost two years ago now. I miss her very much.

    1. Thank you Daisy and I'm sorry about your mom too.. Hugs to you my friend.

  8. Hi Susie, this poem is so beautiful. It made me think of my own mother, who past away 1997. I think of her every day. She is still so much a part of me and who I am. I think one of the things I miss the most is being able to make things for her and give her presents. Her face would light up like a child's, she had such an appreciative heart. She was a very petite little woman only 4ft. 7 in. and she weighed about 85 lbs. It was hard sometimes to find adult clothes that fit her well. I always had my eye out for things when I would go shopping. A few months ago I saw a little jogging suit in Belk's and my heart jumped a happy jump. I instantly thought "Oh, Mama will love this!" and then I suddenly remembered she wasn't there. But it also made me happy too because I knew she would be happy to know that she is always in my thoughts. Have a lovely evening ahead my friend and thank you for all of the sweet comments you leave on my blog! With Love, Delisa :)
