10 years ago when my heart

Was torn to pieces

1st Thanksgiving without her

1st of the 1st to come

10 years of birthdays gone

10 years of wondering why

1st time I blinked and didn’t see her

1st time I wished I died

10 years of agonizing over her death

10 years of trying to accept that you’re gone

Was the first time I felt love

Was the first time I really missed you
Now is the first of realizing my children

Won’t have a Grammy

this poem means a whole lot. my mom died in a car acciednt in 99 hence the title,these are just some of the feelings that i have expereinced with her gone. i didnt really know what went on then beacause i was so young at the time i have spent summers and summers pulling out information and really coming to the relization that she is gone.
