This is another one which is so heart-tugging, especially with it being one of the strongest bonds this world has.
You have worded something which many people feel at the time of loss, but struggle to express it through words.
I love the honesty in the poem, and how you add such personal little details that are alive in your memories and that connect you to your mother, it is a very touching piece to read because we can see how close you were to her, and how much you both meant to each other.
I think you have made a good point at the end, grief is so overwhelming that we sometimes fear it will never leave us. But it does get a bit easier in time, as long as we remember to keep the good memories alive.
You are beautiful, and you write beautiful poetry!
Thanks for sharing this. <3
