    I guess everyday is mother's day for me because I think and only you like it was your day...that's my everyday...day in and day out..you...

    This crazy circumstance...cold like your body in that coffin...not responding to me...or my love or any part of you...your peacefulness my pain...

    the world is a turntable being spinned and scratched and turned constantly upside down...o' but this crazy circumstance...will I continue to be fine like I was when u were my pillar inside...who will I call when I need that last bit of cash to get me through the month....who will give me that coffee in the morning-and though I never drank it hot (always went to sleep!) you never tired...you never tired...

    You never tired when I messed up
    You kicked my butt out of YOUR house when I no longer lived according to YOUR rules (thank you blk momma!) but I refused to leave because I knew I needed that harshness because underneath was nothing but pure love-momma love..

    Every birthday is a happy/sad occasion because there's just one voice that I never hear anymore...

    I see young gals disrespecting their momma's I see women not wanting to talk to their momma's because of this or other circumstance and it drives me CRAZY AND IT MAKES ME ANGRY AND IT MAKES ME sad....because I would give it all up to have that just once...once....again...I don't know much about the answers to my questions but my longings are unfulfilled and perhaps will forever be...

    But without a mom...life is a day by day that I survive the pain...

    lo' on a real tip...
    :( :(

    what can i say?

    WOW. Hard to believe I inspired that prose. One thing is certain that a beautiful loving strong mamma inspired you. I am touched.

    At a loss.

    wow!!!!!

    I am blessed. Truly and deeply....thank u each and every...every one of you....A007, you know never know how the words you write can turnaround and prompt something out of another...thank you for sharing...I am a somewhat better person inside because of all the opportunities I have been given to share freely-when I've felt love, anger and sadness, destee forums have never dissed me out-there's always people out there who are feeling you and who in turn you feel because of the similarity of the situations at any given time...I am blessed and yes, I am back.

    lo'
