Just One Last Time…

Just One Last Time…

Today I read King’s The Stand and

For the first time I felt their pain,

You died a week ago and my life

Will never be the same,

I exist

Through the good days and bad,

The ups and the downs…

Oh, how they threaten to drown!

My mind in a fog,

My emotions on hold,

I never knew

How much I loved you

Until you were gone,

I wonder,

Does one ever get past this pain,

This suffocating sense of loss?

I love you, Mom,

Wish you were here,

Just one last time with

Your laughter and smiles,

We could journey down roads unknown,

Just you and me, how much fun it would be,

We could picnic at the end of our miles!

I love you, Mom. Rest in Peace

  1. So true can see her smile at the end when I would visit her – she would get so excited. I remember when I arrived she wanted to know we were alright and wanted me to say each one and Alex as well. “The boy is he alright she said – I said yes then she
    proceeded on her way. She asked about all children and grandchildren. Like a list then OK. She was pretty impressive !!! Love you
