In Memory of You

I find an old photograph

and see your smile.
As I feel your presence anew,
I am filled with warmth
and my heart remembers love.
I read an old card
sent many years ago
during a time of turmoil and confusion.
The soothing words written then
still caress my spirit
and bring me peace.

I remember who you used to be

the laughter we shared
and wonder what you have become.
Where are you now,
Where did you go,
When the body is left behind
and the spirit is released to fly?

Perhaps you are the morning bird

singing joyfully at sunrise,
or the butterfly that dances
so carelessly on the breeze
or the rainbow of colors
that brightens a stormy sky
or the fingers of afternoon mist
delicately reaching over the mountains
or the final few rays of the setting sun
lighting up the skies
edging the clouds with a magical glow.

I miss your being

but I feel your presence,
In whatever form you choose to take,
however you now choose to be.

Your spirit has become for me

a guardian angel on high
guiding, advising, and watching over me.

I remember you.

You are with me
and I am not afraid.

Greatly Missed

A Mother's touch, A Mother's kiss,

A grieving Daughter, You're greatly missed.

An empty house, An empty chair,

A Mother's love, No longer there.

A broken heart, Tear filled eye,

Another soul to fill the sky.

Many memories in my mind,

Some I laugh, Some I cry.

The times we shared, The laughs we had,

Things I miss when I think of you Mom.

Realizing that's all I have to hold on too,

Only memories, Of what once was you.

Missing your laugh, I will never again hear.

That is the reality that fills me with so much fear.

No more smile on your face,

No more warmth of your embrace.

The last hug, The last kiss,

The last "goodbye" leaves me with one last wish...

To have you Mom, here today,

Never to leave your Daughter this way.

A Mother's touch, A Mother's kiss,

A grieving Daughter, YOU'RE GREATLY MISSED!

One Year

Itís been a year since you passed away

I miss you more with each passing day.
Your smile, your laugh, your touch, your face
The things no one could ever replace.

Life isnít the same without you here

But I feel your presence is always near.
A blow in the wind, a whisper low
I know itís you just saying hello.

The lunches together that we shared

We had great talks and you showed me you cared.
I miss those most when my weeks going bad
Weeks without them only makes me sad.

To think of a future that youíre not a part of

To see me get married and show your grandkids love.
Itís just not fair, why did this have to happen so soon
You were a beautiful woman with eyes like the moon.

I know youíll be watching from up above

Giving your praises, your blessings, and love.
Itís just not the same when I canít have you close
A future without you is what Iíll miss most.

I miss you more than youíll ever know

But my love for you will always grow.
So as the years go on Iíll think of all youíve said
And keep those memories inside my head.

I Love You Mom,

Always and Forever

Your One and Only Daughter, Kimberly
