Death reminds me

Death reminds me By Michelle Morris 12/11/2022 As December draws nearer I know that anniversary is looming Honestly, I don't want to face it Another reminder that you're gone There are too many anniversaries When Death reminds me of its reach It's claws and scythe wave sarcastically My frenemy from the ethers I have respect and understanding For its part in this Universe I have so much experience Our relationship isn't usually terse But, there are these specific dates That mark the loss of loved ones When I am reminded that They are cut off from mortal arms And I feel the loss of love The loss of warmth and kindness Even though I may logically know it's silly I still miss those good times Despite the years and distance Heartache and forgotten trauma I always loved you through it all And I still miss you, my dear mom © Michelle Morris, 2022

Thank you, Deb. I miss my mom and it's always a challenge. There are a lot of people experiencing loss and hopefully this poem helps them in some small way. Enjoy your day/evening, Michelle x
