Amy Sue where are you

start I whisper every night in the still of darkness My eye fill with tears “keep my children safe” God I used to prey But 365 days ago came true a parents greatest fear. God has taken back that precious gift he once gave Now every Sunday a rose we place on your grave. Amy Sue where are you? If this is how it must be, then you I wish I never had, to have you gone hurts so very bad. They all say it will get better with time I have to tell you that is a lie I don’t think I’ll ever be fine. Amy Sue where are you? I do my best not to let it show, But I can’t get you out of my mind and the tears they always flow. Amy Sue where are you? When all alone in the car I can’t help but not to cry And wonder why-oh-why did you have to go without letting me say good bye. I never felt so all alone screaming at the top of my voice Amy Sue where are you?, please don’t go!? An unbearable pain the day God took you home, Now every day I listen to your voice on your phone. Around my neck I keep you close to my heart, Wishing we never had to part. Then I get angry and yell out loud Amy Sue where are you!? Why’d you have to go!! My precious Amy you are a part of me, When God came and took your sole It didn’t take long for me to see, that I’ll never again be whole. I wipe my eyes I try to preoccupy my time and thoughts How ever that only works for a short while, Then I have to go look at pictures of you and your smile. Amy Sue where are you? Again comes the tears and no matter how hard I tried, This will never get easier I fear. The day God took you a part of me also died. As I whisper Amy Sue where are you? Looking to the stars, My pillow soaked with tears, is it possible this would not have happened if we didn’t let you have any cars? I love you so very much I need you to know, Amy Sue where are you? I beg please do not go! Give me just one more chance, I promise I’ll change everything in a single glance. Even at your worst, to me you where the very best, It broke my heart the day we had to lay you to rest. Love Mom end

This ode to Amy Sue makes me want to cry; it is poignant, to the point, and so sad. It brings Mothers Day into a whole new light, because Mothers Day must be horrible for many mothers. Thank you for being brave enough to write this. I wish you good moments, joyous moments, and happy moments, and welcome to Poetry Soup where we build each other up.
