I wrote this poem about a year and a half after my mom passed away. I miss her ever day.

I miss you today
More than I usually do
I’m not sure why today is so different
I just really miss you
Your laugh
Your thoughts
Everything about you
Your scent
Your touch
I miss you so much
I’m at a crossroad in my life
I need your guidance
Your advice
I need you to tell me
It will be all right
I’m uncertain about tomorrow
In my heart
I feel great sorrow
How I wish
That I may borrow
Just one more day
With you

    “Nothing compares to” losing a mother. I was deeply
    touched by your words, hopefully we learn along the
    way and if a loss so great we can almost still feel
    and hear what they would say. They never really leave
    us totally.
    Beautifully touching*
    Take care

    Blessings to you always.

    Dear Laura, if your mom was here, I am sure that whatever she
    would say would be heartwrenching, and if it helps don’t hold the
    tears back, but let each drop reflect a moment of endearment, I’m
    sure that what so ever will be, just will. A moment in reflection
    can bring back dear mom, if only for an instant, but isn’t that
    whyyou asked? Dear heart, Always remember, Jesus cares, He loves
    and He is everything you’ll ever need, things will be alright, He
    promised, maybe not always sunshine, but patience worketh wonders
    and He Alone is totally faithful. Read His words, THE BIBLE, AND
    SEEK HIS WISDOM AND COUNCIL, your friend in Jesus, Wayne!

    If I could make a wish and have it come true, I’d wish my parents back to life in a heartbeat. I lost my mother in 1997. We had her funeral the day before Thanksgiving that year and we lost my dad in 2006, eight days after his 68th birthday. We miss them very much. You wrote this poem from your heart. Keep up the good work.

    Howdy… its is late tonight… in fact it\’s in the morning… I am attempting to send an ecard… suffering the net to find a quotation or something to help me express my feelings on this ecard… for fate or reason, I stumbled onto this poem… after reading it, I started crying like a baby… if my Dad were living he would be 79 this year… but I lost my Dad when he was 52 and I was not fully grown… I have made some real errors in judgement because of his disappearance… I have failed several times in my life trying to be a man and a father… do not know how many times, I wanted him here next to me to talk to… there was no one but Dad then and there has been no one since… today I am bewildered… can not express the feelings of lost and helplessness I have felt for years because he was not there to help me finish growing up… even though I tried to earn my right of passage to manhood… I always felt I missed something because he was not there to tell me, to show me, to teach me, and/or council me… can not express the years I have kept a lid on my heart with the feelings I have had bottled up till tonight… I am by myself crying like baby and wanting my Daddy… I can not believe a grown man at 56 is doing this nor writing here online… it is like I am compelled to do this… I want to share this poem and my feelings with someone… like so many times in my past, I am having to deal with a situation with out a clue and all alone…
