My Mother In Law, My Mon

entry picture














I called you

Mom from day one.

You called me

Shirley, sometimes

you called me Hon.


But I had

to let you go,

I had to say

"Good Bye."

But in my heart

I said,

"Mom please

don't die."


That was more than

ten years now.

Sometimes I

still cry. That day I

had to say "Goodbye,"

the day I had

to let you die.

Hi Shirley - I can easily identify with your
poem and its content. I wrote "My Mother"
after my own passed on twenty years ago - and
I can still recite it.
"It's a while now since she passed away,
And time has hurried on,
But still I hear her softly say
'You'll miss me when I'm gone.'

With each and every passing day
I sadly think upon
Those quiet words i heard her say:
'You'll miss me when I'm gone.'
