Mark this day as my strength to survive
No more hateful thoughts of suiside
My strength to move on from death
&realize that she took her last breath
My strength to let my eyes realize that I DID see her die
My mom is dead
Dead to the world three years now
As I've remained a motherless child
To a women that let me down
Let me down let me down let me Down
But I'm stronger now
Giving her the benifit of the doubt
That she was trapped on a sickness with no way out
So forgive me mother please
For I have ached from the day
That I seen u bleed
No more anger in my eyes
Or any tears to cry
Smiling now as I look up at the sky
I used to thank god that u were alive
But now I thank her for takin ur life
Bcuz I know you're now better
Smilen lookn down from heaven
Or at the top of the Eifile tower in ParisĀ 
Where we meet in our dreams
Mommy thanks for makin me all I can be
&helpn me realize there's a stronger strength in me
Mark this say as my strength to survive

I'm so sorry for your loss, I know what losing someone close to you feels like. This website really helps me because it shows me that I'm not the only one out there in the world hurting. I'm glad you can feel stronger about the situation, I only wish I could be strong enough to put that online where everyone can see it. I admire your courage.
