I awake each morning to start a new day But the pain of loosing you never goes away. I go about the things I have to do And as the hours pass I think again of you. I want to call you and just hear your voice Then I remember that I have no choice For you are not there and now my heart cries Just to see you again to tell you goodbye To say Mama I love you and I always will And hope that much of you, in me you've instilled. The day that you left I just didn't know That you were going where I couldn't go. And now all my memories of you are so dear But gosh, how I miss you and wish you were here. Who now can hear me when I need to cry? It so hard to tell you "Mama goodbye." Someday I know all will be well And I'll see you again with stories to tell Of how you were missed and how we have grown And how good it is to finally be home. Until then my memories of you I'll keep near And I'll pass them on to those who are dear. I miss you Mama, Claudia
One year less
- by Cheryl Mcdonald58
There is no word, no label, no identifying moniker, I am not a widow, not an orphan, not childless, But one child less. One less open laugh and little boy giggle, One less challenging tete-a-tete; One less artful, winking manipulation, One less word of comfort, one less grateful hug. One less chance to embrace a daughter; One less new life to carry your eyes, your chin, your grin, your name, No one word for the pain, the longing, the brevity Of a life meant for living; an old soul meant to grow older than mine; Would there be any one price too high, any sacrifice too great, For one more moment, one more breath, one more warm touch; I grasp desperately and sense the closeness - the ONE just at the fingertips of my heart and mind, Only to realize again and again and again, There is no "One" - you are gone and I am - less.
