    Passing
    (Dedicated (finally) to Kim, Sheryl and those who have lost their mothers)
    By Cindy

    Something I read
    Very profound
    Said
    When a parent passes
    The world changes so
    That you can no longer
    Be a child

    Finding yourself
    Without
    Alone
    Motherless
    You know
    What an orphan feels like

    In your darkest hour
    You think those thoughts
    Without realizing
    That you are not
    Alone
    Parentless

    For she has become
    A better person
    Without this world’s
    Obligations
    And the need to escape
    Into a bottle

    She is there
    Watching over you
    Like she never did before
    Hoping that fond memories
    Surface
    Replacing bad to good in your heart

    Never alone
    Not an orphan
    Although physical presence removed
    Her most precious heart remains
    Focused on you
    And all the happiness you gave

    Winters and summers
    Sunrise and sunsets
    What you need to know
    No one
    Is ever gone long
    Only just removed from your sight

    Hello Cindy.. long time no hear from you. Don't stay away so long.

    Thanks for sharing this.

    " What you need to know
    No one

    Only just removed from your sight. "

    Very profound. Regardless of your age, I do know you miss your love one's when they part this earth. My mother has lost most of her Family, and I know she miss them so much. Especially her Mother. I'm going to call her again and talk with her. Thanks for writing this. I just spent time with her for Thanksgiving, it wasn't enough.

    She does know me and my brothers and sisters will miss her dearly.
    Tell those you love all about the love while they are here. Do all you can for them now. Make their days as happy as possible while they are here, do what you can so they enjoy it with you. Take them to new places, afford a trip take them somewhere they have always dreamed of visiting. Do what you can. Know your family here is your family in heaven. :hearts2:

    Cindyyyyyy :heart:
    First allow me to say how wonderful it is to see you again...
    You have been missed greatly.
    I hope, that all is well!

    and in regard to this poem...
    I see that you have not lost your touch
    or the ability to poignantly convey
    emotions like an artist does with
    paint and canvas...

    This was so beautiful...and so insightful.

    I truly hope to read more of you soon.

    Missed you...Love you!
    Sage

    thank you.

    Thank you for these kind words and I do feel my grandmother's presence all around me after 16 years and I do believe is truly looking after the goodness in my heart.
