Mom I promised you I would do my best to help my brothers and sisters pass
life's test to remember how you were before you were laid to rest.
Mom I`m finding it really hard to do, my brothers don`t talk to each other they`re
playing a fool, my sisters can`t stop crying for you.
Mom I fill no matter what I do it`s not right, try finding peace in this family fight only
to find I did nothing by the end of night.
Mom I remember our last talk, you said no matter what you would be by while I
take this walk, mom I need your strength for my life they mock.
Mom I told you I`d be fine, that I was not blind, that at the end of this road peace I
Mom I fill I`m not the one, all this stress I`m not having fun`m stepping up while
the others run.
Mom I told you I promise, but it`s my family that suffers and it`s them I miss, so I
ask you please help me through this.
Mom I am doing what I said I would, while the others fail to do what they should,
Mom I did the best I could.
Mom,.... how come,.... you chose me to be the one?
Today's the day we take the time
to let our mother's know,
that we appreciate they're role
in helping us to grow.
Although this day comes once a year
I think its safe to say,
that most of us cant wait that long,
we do it everyday.
Most people think they're moms the best
and in they're minds its true,
but one mom stands above the rest
and Rosie, that mom's you.
Thank you for your love, your strength,
your words of wisdom too,
but most of all I thank the Lord
for blessing me with you.
As a child, I didn't understand,
The love that fills my mother’s hand.
In a childhood world,
Everything is carefree,
Your eyes are wide open,
Yet you do not see.
In a motherhood world,
Things can get pretty insane,
Every day comes with joy and pain.
Teaching your child new things,
Dreaming of what tomorrow brings.
Leaving days of pig tales and nursery rhymes,
Loosing Seconds and minutes of these precious times.
Now, with children of my own,
Mother, your feelings are not alone.
Only now do I understand,
Feeling helpless to times demand.
Mother, I just didn't realize,
How I looked in your eyes.
33 years gone in a whirl,
Yet I know you still see your little girl.
I love you Mother.
More than you know.
I know it was hard letting me go.
My childhood life was wrapped up in you,
But my adult life holds something new.
Growing up so fast and free,
I felt your eyes always watching me,
I didn't have to worry,
Because I knew you'd be there.
Now my own children feel MY stare.
Never knowing that in my heart,
I feel the sadness awaiting their future depart.
For one day, I will have to say good bye,
Just as you did with my sisters and I.
But with this sadness, there is happiness too,
For they will always need me,
Just as I will always need you.
My childhood is over but my need for you will never end,
You are a Mother, Grandmother, Guide and Friend.
As life is created from her womb
Bountiful preparation is needed
Charisma, duty, and love
Develop the best care offered
Ecstatic for recording memorabilia
For such experiences occur only once
Given the opportunity to successfully grow
Home redefines as “elsewhere besides the abode”
Ill from separation
Joy still remains in the love connection
Kept in touch through messages of endearment
Life becomes more heartwarming
Mothers nurture endless dreams
*Since Mother's day is nearby, this poem is for all of the caring and devoted mothers out there!:)
Just a day
“Good Night Mom and Dad” I said before I went to bed. “We love you” they said as they closed the door
Mom comes in and wakes me up “Time to go to school” as my feet hit the floor
I got dressed and ate breakfast and got my book bag and now we are on the go
We sit in the car listening to music “It’s Friday I think I’m a little excited tho
“Alright baby we here” as mom open the door to let me get out
She closed the door and kissed me on the head told me she loved me before she pulled off
Another day of school and it close to Christmas
I can’t wait to see Ashley and Alexus, today is show and tell as I said in a whisper
We had learning center day and Boy! Was it fun!
Today was a free day and on Friday there isn’t much to learn
The room was quite when the was a knock at the door, the door opened
A man with a big gun was standing there; my classmates panicked and started to run
I heard a lot of noises and a lot of screams
I felt a sharp pain in my back as I dropped to my knees
In the distant I heard more screams and then everything went silent
Then I closed my eyes it went dark and on the cold floor I was dying
The other side
It’s Thursday night and off to bed we go
I kiss my 5 year old son Jaden and told him I loved him so
Alarm clock goes off and it’s around 6:15 in the morning
I shower got dress and woke up Jaden my little darling
Its Friday, I fixed him breakfast and we headed out for the this last day until the weekend
I enjoyed our little drives to school as we sat in the car singing
I opened the door to let him out once more
Kissed him on the head and told him I loved him ill pick him up around four
I’m at work drinking coffee just talked to my husband on the phone
Got at my desk started to work and the my office phone rung
It’s about 9:30 and it was Jaden’s school
I got the news he was dead and I started to puke
I’m crying uncontrollably don’t know my next move
My son is dead, I can’t believe this news
I hurried to the school in the best of my ability
I saw the school surrounded by medics, reporters, and police
I ran to a officer and demanded to see my son
He said “I’m sorry ma’am” I can’t do this at this time
At 9:32 my one and only son Jaden was pronounced dead
The shooter was 20 and took my son’s life in his own hands
The questions continue to flow through my head as I search for answers
I don’t need answers I need my son and his laughter
I am now sitting on his bed trying to swallow tears
My husband holds me close as reality nears
My little boy is gone among the other 19 kids
Heaven has 20 new angels now I hope he knew how much I love him as much as I did
(To the innocent lives that were lost in the Sandy Hook Elementary shooting)
My moms the best, no one can compare.
She has her faults, but who the hell cares!
She cooks delicious food, and to die for desserts.
She will even know what to do when your tummy hurts.
I know her favorite color is pink, but she also like orange.
Gosh! I Love Her To Death! Do You Wanna Know More?!
Her favorite flower is a daisy.
Her favorite person is her granny.
Her favorite animal? Yup, a frog.
Her favorite horror movie? That would be Saw.
She always needs water in a glass cup.
And you know when your done with that, you'd better clean it up.
Your always there when I need you in my hard parts.
Thank you for all you have done, I appreciate every single part.
Ill always need my mommy no matter what.
Cause ill love you forever, ill love you for always. as long as im living, my mommy you'll be.
you think I got listen to you,
you just my kids father,
there noting between me and you,
it seem the words take you back to court is your favorite words,
get this Sheena Shenia Jackson isn't scare of no court system or even you,
its just a word that is there,
so if you ask me you just things to make women scared im not scare of you like I use to,
I have became stronger and wiser,
I have the Lord behind me,
I believe in him very strong,
so if you want to bring me back to court lets do this now,
you are just a man that God put on this earth,
and I fear no man, no woman and no body,
I am a King child forever,

M. (MY) O. (OLD) M. (MOM)
My old mom: Has gray hair.
My old mom: Can't climb the stairs.
My old mom: Has a rock in chair.
My old mom : Really cares.
My old mom: Doesn't drink no beer.
My old mom: Has lots of tears.
when I say, "I LOVE YOU DEAR".
My old mom: Can't dance the latest.
My Old Mom : She's the greatest!!!
I just wanted to take the time
To thank you for all you do,
Through the up's and down's
The hard time's you've helped us through
You have helped me in way's,
You'll never know.
The void in me you have filled
Something's i was missing in my life
Some of the values that you instilled
Your's was the voice of reason
When i would have sworn i was right.
No matter how i fought it
You have helped me to see the light
You're just like the northern stars
A beacon when i feel lost
A strong shoulder we have leaned on
No matter what the cost
You stepped up and made me feel
Like one of your own
I know you didn't have to
And because of that i have grown
You gave more than you had to
And i can't thank you enough
So thank you for just being there
When life feed's so tough.
HEAR ME ALL YE THAT SEE
HEAR MY PLEA AND FROM ME, DO NOT FLEE.
CALAMITY HAS STRUCK AND NOW, I AM STUCK.
I FEEL LIKE DYING TO END ALL THIS CRYING
BUT I AM TRYING TO BE FINE BECAUSE I KNOW THAT ONE DAY,WE ALL HAVE TO DIE.
SO I WILL NOT CRY
BUT I WILL LOOK UP HIGH TO THE SKY AND TRY TO ASK WHY.
WHY DEATH OF ALL LIFE ON EARTH, TOOK BREATH FROM MY MOTHER.
NOW I HAVE NO OTHER.
I AM FILLED WITH STRIFE AND EVERY TIME I LOOK AT A KNIFE,
I FEEL LIKE TAKING MY LIFE.
INDEED, LOSING A LOVED ONE IS HARD.
IT MAKES YOU SAD AND FEEL VERY BAD.
NO WONDER OTHER'S GO MAD AND ARE NEVER GLAD.
I FEEL THE PAIN BUT THEN, "GOD GIVES.... GOD TAKES AWAY.....REJOICE ALWAYS"
SO SHOULD I REJOICE NOW THAT SHE IS GONE OR SHOULD I CRY?
What does a normal teen do? What does a normal teen think?
I really do not no. yes I am a teen but when I was 15 ½ I thought about how to take care of my mom if she needed to be changed and when to feed her and when to give her medication. I worried about what would happen to my mom. I had to go shopping for toddler cloths for my little sister and brother. I am 17 now and I still go shopping for little children cloths. I worry about getting my homework done and getting my little brother and sister’s homework done. This year I have to take the kids to kinder garden and I will be in 12th grade. I always worry about what’s going to happen to my mom she is still sick but there’s nothing I can do just keep her in my heart and prayers. I worry about what I will do when its time for me to go to college I will still be taking care of my brother and sister. There’s a lot to do I worry all the time about money things being washed and cleaning and homework. My dad does a lot for me and my sisters and brothers I just wish my big sisters would have stepped up and helped my dad take care me and my little sister and brother but they didn’t now i am trying to do all the things my mom did. It is a lot of work mothers have to do. I thought it was easy but now that I have to do it all I can say mothers are what keeps a family in order. Thanks to all the moms out there. If you have moms don’t take her for granted because you never know what will happen to them.
I LOVE YOU MOM,
DO YOU WANT TO KNOW HOW MUCH?
LOOK AT THE SKY
HOW MANY STARS THERE YOU CAN SEE,

A letter to my mom if she could read it.
I am sorry for the times I would not listen to you and would talk back.
I loved all the times we spent together. We had so much fun together you were a great mom and you were my best friend. Some days I ask god why he let you get so sick but I realize its not gods fault that you’re sick it’s just life and some times bad things happen. Know one knows why it happened but it happened for a reason. Things happen and know one knows why it does we just have to deal with it. I miss you mom a lot some times I cry at night because I miss you so much. I just wish you could come home. It hurts to see you so sick I wish it could all go away. Hope one day you come home I all ways try to go see you at the hospital at least twice a week. Mom I am really sorry how I wouldn’t listen and I talked back. I wish we could turn back time and you wouldn’t be sick. I cry just by writing this letter to you. I just can’t believe you might not be able to ever come home. You won’t be able to see me go to prom or get married if I ever do. Mom I just want you home but that won’t happen you’re to sick and I hope a miracle happens and you get better and come home. Some days I feel like I cant make it through the day but I just remember your spirit and love will all ways be with me every day and you’re always in my heart. I all ways cry when I think about you. When you were sick I dyed my hair purple, blue, hot pink, red, and aqua. People still make fun of me and say I am weird but it’s ok. There is so much things I want to say but I don’t know how to just know I am sorry for how I treated you. I MISS YOU MOM AND LOVE YOU!!
They say that little boys are made of shells and snails and puppy dog tails.
They say that little girls are made of sugar and spice and everything nice.
BUT WHAT ARE MOMS MADE OF?
Moms are made of thunder. As her voice booms to say,"Stay out of the cookie
Moms are stronger than superman. When you want that peanut butter jar open.
But most of all moms are soft and full of tears.
When you hand her flowers and say," I LOVE YOU MOM!!"
when i was at my range to be a baby .
i was under in every one's arm .
but , first i was in my mom's hand .
late night i think . how much pain she had to take to keep me calm when i was a baby .
how much love she use to give me when i was a baby .
and not also when i am at my age now she give me a lot of love
when my growth changed .
she settled me in everyone's heart .
she started to teach me what i didn't know .
the proper way to behave with an elder and a younger too.
her life was nothing besides me .
her work was to be with her tears for me .
she had a daily routine to cook to wash to teach me to behave good
she says that , my child is only my life . nothing else .
but , she had to bear all the problems though even she had her mother .
spending her all time on us .
spending her goods on us.
exactly she says , i am illiterate . but you do out what i haven't done in my life ,
you shine the world ,
what i have not
you go ahead and be your good life .
these of her words touch us ..
and late night i thought , i was the lovingly daughter and will be ahead .
when my life is still there or nothing ..
There is no other like my dear mother.
She was there when I laughed or cried. And she was there when my
infant son had died.
She was there if I was happy or sad. And still loved me whether I
was good or bad.
Now that she's gone, she has left her middle name for me to carry
To me, it's just a simple reminder, that there is no other like my dear
You don't like to hear what I
have to say, I try to talk to you
every single day. Your never
there when I need you most,
your never there when I need
you close, I know I'm not great,
I know I'm easy to hate, but
you should be one to care, you
should be the one treating me
fair. I just can't talk to you, and
you know its true, because no
matter what its not right! I can't
make you proud even with all
my might. Some others are
there for me, but they never
there when I need, shouldn't
you be doing that? I just want
you to love me, like you loved
them, mom why can't you be
what you were to them? A
Hi mommy. I'm glad you're clean
Or at least that's what it seems
Daddy called me
You send him and email
It had a picture
In that picture is what killed him
Fear bled through his every limb
Jazzys picture in the back
His soul went black
How could you do this
I thought it was all bliss
You let it control again
I'm in shame
People in and out
They make me want to shout
My scars are from you
It doesn't matter
I'm just her
Mommy i want daddy
And he should have let you take the blame
Cause i knew it was going to be the same
Mom I lost you when I was 6
It on a was Christmas Night
You was killed in front of me
I was only 6
When it happen
I stood their sacred
Not knowing what to do
I ran too the phone and called 911
The time they got their it was to late
Now that I'm older
I was I could you see you
One Last time
For Mother Days
I would buy you Roses
And give you a million kisses
If I could see your face
But I Know god took you for a reason
Cause your up their standing right beside him
Staring down on me
I love you mom
Happy Mothers day
my mom whom i loved died
she left this earth to depart to the other side
she left an impression of love upon me
i only hope to be as a good of person as she
her friends loved her so much
a shame she had to die and leave her love ones behind
if only i had a little more time
time to say i love you mom
time to say i care about you mom
she was my best friend and my maternal figure
when she left i guess i died also
a part of her son left with her that day
upon my knees i pray
do not take my mother leave her good soul upon the earth
she does more good and none of the hurt
to you mom i love you so and i am sad you had to go
All the above
Where we're you
Working the truck stop
Don't know the dads
Dropped me off
While you worked the
All the stories
You was a truck stop mom
Left a pooh chain
When you died
I wear it daily
All the above
When you died
That was the
Seen my father
Cry for his
Truck stop mom
A child is born in time of war
Neglect of love to grow
A child is born to live by strength
And tough for her to show
To show a side is sometimes kept
In behind her heart
Like missing out on things not given
A chance to be a part
A part of her development
To show her gift to dance
Tap away on stage perform
For her there was no chance
Down the chain but not for her
She passed on to her girls
Dressed them up of costumes made
Of sequins, lace and pearls
From child of beauty, adult same
Raised three girls to heights
Taught us self respect and worth
Much the same our rights
The lesson learnt to care for all
Explained just like no other
In her eyes I've seen it said
To me this is my mother
A breath I take to write this poem
Coz in my gloom be near
And rush upon my place she does
To help remove my fear
Above my bed my black cloud fog
mum here close and giving
Help me fade away the pain
To love in her is living
Mama, why am I so alone,
I cant go outside,
Im scared I might not make it home.
But Im sinking.
Ive been here before and I deserve
a little more .
Why are they lying?
When I think of heaven ,
I think of dying.
Please help me ...
Help me believe in me,
I want to be someone who believes.
Mama , cant you see?
My heart resides in you mother,
My heart beats for you dear.
You're the garden of beauty,
where grows the flower of prosperity.
Deeper than the ocean,
your verses are like an incantation.
Just like the sunshine,
your aura is fine.
You're the bliss of all,
who shine despite a fall.
is mine fulfillment.
gives me perfection."
For enhancing my life skills,
You taught me the principle of 4D's*.
The crown of principles that you made me wear,
is found in the world very rare.
MOTHER- the enormous resource of the true love,
under whom one becomes like a Dove.
Having great impact in my life,
I really miss you, Mom in the moments of strife.
*4D's here refers to (determination, dedication,devotion & discipline.)
And nothing to do
For he’s tired too
As morning shine
Your heart is honey
As the orangey
Sun u make
The dark Vanish
In the heart
As the mind
Through your heart
Oh, how I’d like to forget, walkin in with you on the bed.
You appeared to me as though you were asleep,
But little did I know you were already deceased.
Never seen you the night before, was scared I’d get beat,
to avoid you yelling at me, and trying to keep the peace.
I wish I could forget those memories,
They're burned in my brain and still in my dreams.
If I could have just one wish for me,
I'd wish for just one day that you could be here with me.
Even though according to you I was a disappointment,
I wonder if I was also your regret.
I always let you down, everything was my fault,
I said and meant that I was sorry, and yet it never stopped.
If only... If only... I could rewire my brain,
And forget all the memories that cause me pain.
Because of you I have this fear,
I want to be angry but I end up scared.
Apart of me always wanted to say “F-off,”
Even though I love you and miss you a lot.
When you died I never had the chance to stand up to you to say things I needed to say,
I still have a lot of pent up anger and pain.
And this bottle inside me is about to break.
How dare you leave us when you did!
Did you know that it was going to happen?
Why did you keep so many secrets from dad and me?
Why this way, did it have to be?
I want to be angry.... but I just cant,
You made me stronger, yet gave me half a chance.
No more.... Fore I'll get carried away,
So at peace... I hope you are and will stay.
