    My Omnipresent Masterpiece

    Giving me a foundation
    and a map-of-life
    full of instructions and
    rules to live by
    forming and shaping
    my thoughts and opinions
    over the course and during
    our 25 year learning tree
    until carcenoma
    took you away
    six years prior
    and on this day
    but God saw fit for you~
    He called you his
    Good & Faithful Servant too
    then He lay claim to your soul ~
    and you deserved the time to rest...
    I've never
    felt quite the same
    even though you're
    no longer here
    I still hear your voice say,
    "I've got my eye on you - N2,
    keep progressing as I've
    already paved your way"...
    ~ and you have,
    ~ and I will
    Today I believe
    you've encouraged me -
    you would be so proud
    if you were able to
    truly see me, your once
    little brown girl -
    who's a full grown
    cup of mocha delight
    playing an important
    role in my own daughter's
    life...
    and I really wish
    she could have known the
    you -- that I do
    but when I look into her eyes
    I see me, then I see you
    and I cry~
    For all you've done
    I can't thank you
    enough
    just wanted you to know that I
    love and miss you very much
    I am forever grateful to you
    my
    ...... MOM......

    N2urSoul, this piece rocked me to my core! It made me reflect on my own mother's life and death.

    This poem is a lyrical memorial to her and you and your child are living tributes to her!
