I miss you my mom

Not many babies are born with an angel at hand. 
I'm one of the few this must have been planned. 
My first memory of you is feeling your joy. 
Ready to love and protect your new baby boy

Always there to love me and teach me to ease my fears 
There to hug me and hold me, to wipe away my tears. 
We grew strong together, but had a difficult ride. 
You never broke down you just took it in stride.

Through the loss of our family you taught me to cope with the mess. 
You told me it would soon hurt less often but would never hurt less. 
Now I've lost you, and I'm all on my own 
A loneliness fills me, one I never have known.

All I have now are memories of words you would say. 
To help me survive this each and every day. 
I miss you my mom my angel my friend. 
With these words my love I send.

It was my gift to you to set you free from your pain. 
You taught me through this it would be strength that I gain. 
So now with all my love my writing must end. 
I miss you my mom my angel my friend.
