Amazing Women

I know she doesn't think so but she's always on my mind.
Most these days in gentle ways, but always there to find.
I think about her happiness and how she sees her life.
I wonder of her journey as a woman and a wife.
Sometimes I hear the sadness in her voice right from the start,
when loneliness has pierced her pride and bruised her tender heart.
I wish I could drop everything and rush to ease her strife,
but we both know that's how it goes and that's just not real life.
I often find I worry for her needs in days to come
and pray she keeps her faith in where her strength is coming from.
I think about the parallels of all that we've been through
and hope I have the answers if she asks me what to do.
No matter where life takes her in my heart she's always near,
though many-a-day, I have to say, I wished that she were here.
She's right where she's supposed to be and somehow so am I,
Influencing my thoughts in ways that make me want to try.
Although we live our separate lives and try to stay in touch
we know we'll have each other's backs if ever in a clutch
There's never been a day go by I didn't wake to find
In some small way, like yesterday, she's always on my mind.

I believe every parent can identify with this poem. I know I think of my children at least once a day. I'm proud they're on their own but sad to be alone. A heartfelt write, Jeannie.

Sorry lol, I think you should call her everyday and go to see her as much as you can.. That part, but I know it is hard when you have family and little time..

In regards to the subject I disagree.. IF this is about your mother, I feel you should call her everyday if you cant go to see her.. You never know when it will be the last time you speak.. You poems lflows well and had good rhymes.. It all shows your love for your mum..

You nailed it, I definitely had my mother in mind when I wrote it but I also thought of my own daughter. It makes me sad to think about it now so it is whatever it is. Moving on! And yes, I should call my Mom way more often than I do!
