twenty years of grief

I can't be there today 
to sit beside your grave, 
I need to talk to you 
its comforts what I crave 

I've cried a million tears 
as I've walked into forever, 
wandering lost and alone 
since our bond was severed 

I look into the night
to see you walk the stars,
listening to the deep 
for messages from afar 

I've learned to write in word
my heartache and pain, 
until that sacred time 
when I'll be with you again 

I miss your words of advice 
and the sound of your voice, 
being so far apart from you 
would never be my choice 

As I walk in fields of gold
your memory is with me, 
and looking at carnations 
makes a smile break free 

The strength of your love 
is a testament of my grief, 
only when I leave this place 
will I find a peaceful relief 

I'm going to be a Nan 
I wish I could share with you, 
all these little happy times 
but I'm only feeling blue 

My dearest loving Mother 
I miss you more each day, 
twenty years have passed 
it hurts more than I could say

    20years without a mother must be very hard... But I can see her skills have been passed onto you.. Have a lovely day Jayne..
