9 days before the 10th

Summer wind breathed in memories
summer wind beginning to change
Leaves falling to the ground
past tense memories

September’s 4 years past
since I last heard happy birthday
then October took that all away

holding your hand
9 days before the 10th
I knew the 9th was the last day
I would see you

9th was the last day
you heard my voice
I was singing to you
you asked me too

I saw the light in your eyes
And I knew this was it
I saw the pain you held inside
but when you heard my voice you smiled

grabbing my hand
my curls wrapped in them
you would not let go
you could not leave till I was there

mommy don’t go
I will sing again
please do not leave me
I love you mommy R.I.P.

    A very heart-tugging and precious write, Kyrah. The last verse especially got me… My heart goes out to you in a big way…

    We lost our mum’s in the same year. My mum passed away in July 07, while holding my hand… I so feel for you.

    Love you. xxx

  • Yes Donna I really did not want to put this write up I started it a few weeks ago then I started having bad dreams . And did not like it so yesterday I completed it thinking if putting it out there it would work for therapy in my own way and no bad night mares last night .thank God . And yes the way she grasped my curls in her hand ..yes our mom’s past the same year Loves you xoxo((hugs))

    kyrah it seems we belong to a club we didn’t ask for membership
    losing our mother’s. it’s difficult as i lost mine in 2000 and i still have my moments when no one else can satisfy the needs of my yearning but her so i talk to the Lord and He comforts me because He gave His promises we will have eternal life so we will see each other again…
    hold on to His promises dear one
    peace love and light always

  • Thank you Mary Mac. Yes is always holding on to his promise but sometimes we just can’t help the dreams we have. But glad I got this out did not want to at first but seems like it helped. :-) Thank you XO
