free cee 'TIS A SHAME DIMENTIA STOLE MY MAMA'S EYES BEFORE SHE COULD READ THIS

              SHE REALLY ISN’T SHE ANYMORE

Whenever my world seemed as if it were going to implode
Or explode exponentially from an internal bomb
When one single pound seemed like a hundred ton load
I would always be enlightened and brightened by my beloved mom

When what I thought was right turned out to be terribly wrong
And the wrong thing had consequences consistently appalling
When it seemed as if I had nowhere to go or for me to belong
The telephone would ring and it would be my merciful mother calling

Whenever terror terrified my soul and threatened me so
When fright began the night and the day delivered further dread
When I required knowledge my mom would offer that which I needed to know
And bring comfort to my weary body and a very woeful head

Whenever things seemed askew and went thoroughly awry
When my mind said “no” but my body demanded “yes”
Whenever my mom saw right through my every lie
She’d still love and forgive me well after I decided to confess

Whenever whatever I ever did was insidiously iniquitous
My mom’s dedication never wavered in a single or even the slightest way
Her forgiveness and devotion were both uniquely ubiquitous
But now my mom’s tenuous well being scares the hell out of me every damnable day

    Very powerful piece and testament to your love. Even though her mind is affected her soul is eternal as is her love for you. Still this is a great although temporary loss for both of you. One day when you are reunited in the next life you will have much to talk about. Take care.

    Unconditional love always gives us the strength to become better people. Your mother sounds like an angel

    A wonderful tribute to your mom, Jeffry. Mother's are special, especially the ones who will stand by you no matter what you do. You were blessed to have a mother like that. Love, Kim
