Daughter to mother

by Mary

I visited you today
Hadn't been there in a while
I walked slowly
To where you were sleeping
The distance felt like a mile
I knelt down on your bed
And all i did is whisper two words
I said Happy Birthday
While a diamond fell on to the floor

The wind blew hard
And it was starting to get cold
I wished that wind would bring me
Closer to you
Because i yearn to see your beautiful face
Once more
Just the sound of your voice
Would bring me a sudden comfort
A comfort that only a mother
Can give to her child

A lump builds up in my throat
I cant talk
I cant breath
Than i walk away
I know this is reality
Its not just a dream

And as those lovely roses
Now rest on your grave
Behind me
I just want you to know
I love you
And my memory of you
Will never fade.

This is a very emotional piece of work it has a lot of sadness and pain in every word. The ending was the most astonishing part of the poetry and it made the whole thing mean even more

great work
