Gnawing emptiness eating away
Healing wounds bleeding again
Silently grieving day after day
Painful memories still remain.
Today marks the twelfth week of Mum’s demise. It is hard to believe that Mum has been gone that many weeks. Whenever I looked at photographs of Mum, it felt as if she was still here a short while ago only. I miss those familiar features of Mum’s face. I miss those familiar sounds of Mum going about her daily chores. I miss being in Mum’s presence.

A very beautiful poem.
A very sad poem for the woman who had given so much to me. I miss her so much.
Dear Peter, I share your feelings of sadness. But, for a great lady as loving and caring as your Mum as you have described, I am sure she would have been granted eternal peace and happiness in God’s wonderland. She will live forever be in the hearts of those whom she loves, and those who love her…
Thank you for your kind words. Mum deserves peace and happiness for all the years that she had toiled to look after me.
