Mama

Frozen in time.

You looked so beautiful, so proud,

so in love.

I don’t remember you from then.

I know you from another time.

We shared so much in the little time we had.

If there was a problem, I always came to you.

Now I can’t because you are gone.

Looking at your picture sometimes tears me in two.                                       

As I remember the good times,

the stories you read,

the songs you sang,

and the smiles you gave.

Then I remember you are no longer here.

But remember the love you shared

and that keeps me going.

Still!

I remember your number

and every once in a while, I pick up the phone,

then I remember you can’t answer. 

There is so much to tell you,

so much you have missed.

You are still in my heart and I think of you often,

I remember your birthday,

giving your card and present.

But now you are gone.

I hate not giving you a card and present.

I remember the birthday card I received, after you were gone.

It was like you knew

I needed one last reminder,                                       

to know that you were thinking of me.

That you loved me,

and to let me know that you’d always be there.

When we meet again,

we will laugh and cry,

but until then,

I look at the picture,

and remember the love you gave.

Take care up there

‘til we meet again.
