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 

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 

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.
