This poem is for you Mama…

Ten years gone
Ten years without you
The vacuum remains
She left
He left
The picture changed forever
I no longer see your face
You’ve been gone for too long
Ten years I’ve missed your voice
Your wisdom
Your care
No one can be you
Your warm hugs
Your soothing voice
Your musical laugh when I tell a joke
The tear that slips from one eye when you laugh so hard
I’ve missed you for ten years!
Ten years ago…I still remember
How fast time flies
How strong memories remain
Woman of valor
Woman of peace
Woman of strength
Woman of service
Woman of humility
Woman of kindness
Woman of generosity
Meek and patient
Mother and friend
I’ve missed you for ten years
Ten years gone and I’m still counting
