Five Months

Five Months

Well , it’s been 5 months since God took you away ,
And I struggle with the pain more and more each day .
How do you begin to heal such a broken heart ,
When the rest of your life has been torn all apart .
It breaks my heart to know your not here with me ,
I close my eyes and your last few weeks are all I can see .
Mama , I never imagined your life would end in such pain ,
The one time I could’nt help or protect you , is driving me insane .
I’ve never felt so helpless , dumb and confused ,
Not knowing any answers for the cancer abused .
What could I have done or did’nt do ,
That would of made this time somewhat easier for you ?
Did you forgive me for not taking you back home ;
Cuz I know this is where you wanted to die ?
This haunts me with each day that goes by .
Did you know I held your hand and stayed by your side ?
Could you hear and feel all those tears that I cried ?
I wish you could tell me you knew I was there everyday ,
And that you and me are going to be Okay !

I’m Sorry and I miss you ,Mama !
I Love You !
