    This is a really sweet poem. I really like it. By the time I was done reading your poem...I was crying...so, sweet and touching. I know it's really personal, but thanks for sharing.

    Oh my Ann this was such a touching piece that has brought me to tears ..
    The holliday season is such a hard time ,when you miss those you love ...

    On the 20th of December my Grandma will be gone 6 months and the first Christmas I will spend without her ...
    I miss her so much at times it hurts ...
    I have been remembering the past Christmas 's alot lately and how every year she would make sea pie and we'd all sit around and she would sing
    (after she would have a few drinks ) lol
    She was 93 and she would dance around clapping her hands and the joy of seeing her happy made my heart smile ...
    It is the memories of these happy times that will pull me through this holliday season ...
    Your mom sounds like she was an incredible lady and a very loving mom ...I am so sure she is looking down from heaven at you right now and so proud of the wonderful daughter she created ....
    A very heartfelt poem Ann ....

    Ann, that is a beautiful and touching poem. I know how hard the holidays are when you lose a parent. My mother died on Thanksgiving 15 years ago and it isn't any easier now than it was ten years ago. What a beautiful way to express your feelings.

    Beautiful poem! it's so sad though, your mother sounds like a great strong woman and you were lucky enough to have her. least she's in a pain free place now and gets to see you everyday! wonderful piece.

Keep her spirit and her memory alive in your heart and in all that you do. This is a beautiful and very heartfelt write. Big hugs and lots of love to you.........

    Oh Ann,

    This is so very touching and sad, I am almost an emotional wreck from reading it! The poem really has brought out every single aspect of your love for your Mom and how much you love and miss her. I have not read such a touching piece of writing in a long time.

    Warmest regards,

    Steve

    I've never really experienced coping with the death of a loved one..I guess you could say I'm lucky in a way. my grandmother often talks about death and if anything should happen to her, I don't know what I'd do. I admire your strength and courage. I'm sure your Mom is very proud of you. take care! happy holidays!!!

    It's seems like I been away from here for ever. I miss this damn place! The poetry and the people! I so quickly forget the talent within this site...and then I come and kicks me right in the head! lol

    Reading your poem made me think hard about the day I'll be forced to say good bye to my mother. I can't imagine the pain felt inside for there is no greater love than a mother. Your emotion grabs the reader is this Miss Ann...the struggle is definitely heard but you wrote it gracefully and without trouble it seems. I can't say I understand or know where you're coming from as I do NOT...but I will say she IS with you. You speak of your faith in the Lord...so remember he allows her to be with you. I hope your holidays are wonderful! Do take care!

    Now...I got some catching up to do. Merry Christmas!!!
