Two years ago, my mom died at the age of 92

I still miss her. Here is one of the poems I wrote when she left: I thought that I was ready in my mind; I thought that I was ready in my heart; but when that time arrived, I came to find I really hadn't even made a start. I prayed that she would leave with ease and grace; when that time came she slipped off just that way; I got to hold her hand and kiss her face; my tears fell on her cheek in a display. And darkness held the night in its cold arms, and darkness wrapped me in cold arms as well. I won't be neede for any alarms, and I won't fear the telephone's shrill bell. My memories will keep me warm at night as I lie open-eyed awaiting light. copyright 2006Margy Ohring

Hi mcat! Wow! I really like the poem which you made in memory of your wonderful mom. We are very lucky to have been brought up in this world with our respective mothers. They have sacrificed a lot for us to be the best that we can possibly be. I'm also very proud of my mother...I am very happy for you, you experienced being loved by your mom. You also loved her greatly in return. Though, she's no longer with you physically, yet good memories do still linger. I know that she is very happy where she is now and she's still watching over you.
