MumBecause there is nothing I can say that will change the way you feel at the loss of your Mother …..

Today I was reminded of a loss that cuts so deep

Of someone irreplaceable, when life is incomplete

I can’t pretend and won’t you see, that soon you will forget

There are no words that I can say or ones that leave regret

A Mother is the greatest love that holds your tiny hands

Guides you through the toughest times and sees to your demands

She will give up everything she has, to see that you’re OK

So she can know that you will cope without her there one day

I never could appreciate the things my Mother knew

How she would know the things that make me feel the way I do

How could I know until the day I felt the beating heart

Of the child I held so tightly and with whom I’d never part


The things that she took care of, whether I knew of them or not

And all the times she put things right when I myself forgot

I feel as though her shadow is right there alongside mine

As I walk this path without her in the passage of my time

My memories of her are worth a thousand tears each day

There are no words that you can say will take the pain away

So when I say I’m sorry for the loss of one so dear

I cannot know how much it hurts, but recognise each tear

And I can say that it’s good to cry if only to release

The memories that you want to see and that will bring some peace

If you feel that there are things you should have said or should have done

She knows all that you want to say, she always did – your Mum

She held the love you had for her so dearly in her heart

And gave all of hers unconditionally right from the very start

Each and every tear, every thought and every word

You speak about your Mother makes her good intentions heard

P1020131She lives on in her children and all that she has touched

The love you see in all of them them shows you loved her very much

Today I was reminded of a loss that cuts so deep

Of someone who I cant replace, but made my life complete

I can’t pretend that her love is something easy to forget

Because of her I have no words that make me feel regret

For someone who I know is hurting so much and who I know my words can’t touch. But I mean them with sincerity and offer all my deepest sympathy at a time that seems impossible to understand.
