A Letter to the Otherside

by Angie   Aug 4, 2015


I sure am missing you a lot today
I thought I cried all the tears I could cry
but I guess not, because today,
they flowed like a raging river

Looking at your photograph, at the moment,
is just not enough

I want to place a kiss upon your cheek
and feel your warm skin beneath my lips

I want to run a brush through your hair
and feel its softness with my fingers

I want to look into your beautiful hazel eyes
and see the understanding
and feel the love radiating from within

I want to hear your soothing voice
as we chat about everything and nothing

I want to hear your laughter
as I share the antics of your
grandchildren and great grandchildren

And, I want to feel your strong arms
as you wrap me up in a huge comforting hug

They say that if I just sit quietly
with my eyes closed, that I'll feel you
beside me and I know this is true,
because you always are

But it's just not the same, because today,
I am needing more, call me selfish,
but, there are days when a girl
just needs her Mommy,
in the here and now

I miss you Mommy
I love you too too much and a whole bunch

Forever Your Loving Daughter

    Hope you're smiling today dear! You always wrap me up in your writing! Miss reading your words. I took a couple minutes away from my desk to clear my head and thought let me go check out an old part of me. I am sorry to have to comment on this. This is beautiful. I remember writing being the only thing I wanted to do bc it's the only way to kind of express how you feel. Love ya woman!!! May there be peace and light in your life!!! Xoxo

    This is heartbreakin, it isn't often I read a poem and it brings tears and it's even rarer for me to admit it but I know this feeling all to well, I lost my Dad a long time ago and myself being a father of a seven year old going on seventeen there's alot I wish he was here for.

    I hope you are ok.

      Thank you for sharing that part of you with me, I hope you are ok as well, I think no matter how long they are gone, we still miss then and wish they were here for things, I know they are spiritually but its not always the same... and I am doing ok, thank you.
