My Mother

My mom would have been the perfect paradigm of my ideal

Had she lived long enough for me to know her as an adult

Her life finished when she was just twenty six years old

I never got the chance to develop memories of her as a person

Life for her was short and her journey ended where for other, it begins

Her thoughts slide into my mind often and needless to say that

I miss the motherly touch, the words of wisdom that she might have

Imparted to me, had she been alive when I became old enough to value

The love and devotion only a mother can give to her child each and every day

Today and every day, I salute the mothers, who with selfless love give their children

All the confidence they need to face this world and to stand strong on their own

In response to the following;

Your daily word prompt ;

RDP;

Finish

Word of the day challenge;

Motherly

    1. Thanks Michael. Being six at that time I didn’t realize the enormity of my loss. Took me lot of years to just come to grip with this realization. 57 is young. I am 57 and I think if I die now, my kids would think that I went too early too. But we never know how much time we have. So better make the best of it.
