Mother

 Just an acknowledgment 
of what you meant to me.
  When no one else was there, 
you believed in me.

When others around deceived,
 you wiped my tears,
You, weeped with me.

When life was hard, you showed me. 
 The wisdom you
Knew to mold me.

  When heartache had bestowed me, 
you held out your
   Hands to hold me.

When the load was to heavy to bare,  
you helped me.
   Face my worst fears.

Your presence is still felt, in many ways. 
 Your granddaughters reflection
Keeps my spirit & faith..

Now being a mother, I truly understand. 
 The sacrifices, you.made, commited to
Support, guidance & love at hand.

The greatest love, I've ever received,
 my departed mother
   Whom I still grieve.

  Although the years have swiftly passed, 
the memory of your
Love will never surpass. 

 Etched inside is my sincere love &.thanks
   To be blessed, with a mother, 
gone, to fast.

    Beautifully written. I am so happy that you had such a close relationship with our mother. It's rare sometimes to see that between daughter and mother. You are blessed to have such a relationship. I wish you all the best. Kilmer
