"Nothing is so common as the wish to be remarkable." (I forget who said it...)

Hey, Mom,
It's been a while
Since you sat next to me,
Since I saw you smile
I miss you, Mom
I wish you were here
Giving me kisses
Holding me near
I can still see you, Mom,
The laughing, happy you
Not the ill, broken woman
Who broke my heart in two
I'll always remember, Mom,
You taught me well
To do good things,
And with Honesty tell
I'm telling you, Mom
Losing you killed me
Laying a rose on your casket
Trying hard to be
That's what you were, Mom,
In everything you said
In everything you did
So now I'll be just that
Strong like a mother, not like a kid

I love the emotion. It made me think twice, about my relationship with my family.

It almost brought me to tears. Keep writing hun.
