Mom

A mother you were not to me

A mother is all I wanted you to be

So many years, so much pain

So much sadness, so much rain

Goodbye it’s time for you to go

I’ll be waving as the tears flow

Another life, another time

I could have made you mine

Thought I mourned you long ago

But apparently I’ve got more to go

Not sure where your soul will fly

I only hope you had called on the Most High

  1. I’ve been praying for you, Amy. So hard for so many losses this close. I pray you can find healing and peace. I heard an episode on a podcast this morning that reminded me of how your situation has been.

  2. Dear Amy, I don’t know how on earth I missed this yesterday! I posted on my blog and commented on others either side of yours . . . and yet somehow I missed this! I’m so sorry.
    I’ve seen your most recent post and will be praying for you and your husband, especially tomorrow (Friday). This is such a painful time for you, made all the worse because you will grieve for the relationship that you and your mum never had, through no fault of your own.
    I believe that you are absolutely doing the right thing by going to see your mum at this time, and I also believe that God will bless you for doing so. I pray that you will be strengthened throughout, and that God gives you His wondrous peace. Much love to you. xxx

    1. Thank you Lesley. Prayers are appreciated. Pray she stays alive til I get there. I’m not sure if it’s silly to write about all of it but healing seems to always come when I write. I end up writing things wether in ryhme or not that I didn’t know I was even feeling. Then I think on it and work in it and I’m good. Praying that is what happens here.

      1. No, It’s not silly at all, Amy. If you find it healing, then that’s good . . . especially if it brings concealed feelings to the surface.
        Have a safe journey to Florida. ❤️

  3. Praying that you will have a safe trip on Friday and will find closure. God is right by your side; “I will never leave you nor forsake you” (Joshua 1:5b).
    Losing a parent is hard. I have lost both by now and don’t know where my dad went. He heard the gospel like your mom; but we can have HOPE that it was absorbed. Romans 10:17 “So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.”
    I believe that writing is one of many tools to get through hard times.
    Blessings, Elfriede
