TEN YEARS GONE

TEN YEARS GONE

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
