Written in Loving memory of my mom
Shirley Jean Walker
1942-2004
she was greatly loved and deeply missed, my biggest regret in life is that I was in such a hurry on that cold December day that I didn't recognize what was happening.  I know she would have understood, I just pray that I learned a lesson, Life is busy but nothing should ever hold you back from being present in the lives of the one's God has so gracious blessed you with!

An angel in your eyes

It was a typical day, in late December.
The sun was shining, as a burning ember.

The hustle and bustle of Christmas cheer.
To all the chaos, I chose to adhere!

Just as many of those days before.
I hit it running, with chores galore!

The hospital was to be my first stop.
A small gift for you, I found in the shop.

To your room, I eagerly went.
A moment with you, time I spent.

It wasn’t like the previous days.
It seemed as though, you were in a haze!

The doves were prancing, on the window sill.
We watched for a second, as time stood still!

I cherish those minutes, when I combed your hair.
And rubbing your feet, and our time in prayer!

Could I have known, what was soon to come?
Why didn’t I see, was I that dumb?

With limited time, and many things to do:
I gently kissed your head, and blew right through!

I should have realized- yes, I should have known.
That you were preparing, for your journey home!

I remember well, that day your last breath was drawn.
It’s been nearly nine years, since you have been gone!

If I could go back and change that day:
With you mom, I would definitely stay!

I would softly whisper in your ear.
And I would make it very clear!

The time we shared, was not a waste.
You gave me life, and I embraced!

Today is your birthday and dad is here.
And to your memory we do endear!

You left a legacy, your sweet love.
and of it we do speak thereof!

The day you left took me by surprise,
You are now, an angel in my eyes!

    how sad this is that she left so suddenly and took you by surprise. But of course she is not really gone. I bet she is watching down on you always!! Very nice poem.
