Thinking of you (Poem)


Sometimes, as humans we take for granted others around us. This last week, not only was I in my darkest moments, passing over my five-year hump of losing my mother, I dealt with much chaos as well. I did what I do, and dropped off from the world because no one seems to ever truly know your wounds. Broken into shattered pieces, everyday I pick them up. Sometimes as humans we don’t need the extra added petty stress, and often that’s what slowly kills us. I’ve been thinking about my mom a lot, even through certain situations I’ve passed through over the week. “There is more to life than strife and grief.” Why do I know this? Because it’s within me. I’ve lost precious moments, that can not be returned. I watch my children grow without the beauty of having grandparents. I struggle just like everyone else out there, but unlike them, I can’t run to mom and dad. I have more to worry about than whats on TV, I have more to concern myself over who hate this, or who hates that. I just take knowledge in knowing one thing. Our life is short, and take not for granted the one chance you get.


 

The week is finally over

I’m brightening up today

I traveled through my dark tunnel

Passing through time again

Since Heaven has become your home

I sometimes feel I’m so alone

Though we are now so far apart

You hold a big piece of my heart.

I never knew how much I’d grieve

When it was time for you to leave,

Or just how much my heart would ache

From that one fragment you would take

Beauty lies within this gap

A lesson learned through it all

Growing up all alone

No parents around for that support

Still pushing on to make you proud

Someday your hug will warm my soul

Binding us together again

My lovely angel you are in me
