Remember me as I was before
Please try hard to grieve no more
I'm not far, just look above
Now resting, with others I love
So wipe your eyes and dry those tears
If your down, think back to better years
I must go, so no more fears
I love you all, my time is here.
| That was beautiful. I had to sing at my brother(in-law, but loved no less)'s funeral, it's hard to get up there infront of everyone. |
We found out my mother had cancer my Freshman year, it was the scariest thing ever. If she left, well, my family would have fallen appart, she is the glue that holds us together.
A truely beautiful poem, I admire you for your courage.

I'm very sorry for your loss. Though I've never experienced it, the death of a parent is always tragic. It's always good that you can write it down to let out your feelings. |
Nice poem and my condolences.

Great job here.
I wish that I had been able to say something like this when my father passed.
God bless those left behind.

I don't have anything else to say. I think you said what you wanted to with brevity and emotion.
So well done on that. And losing a mother can be very hard - I nearly lost mine. But she's still here. And for that I'm very grateful.
