"Worries are like weights and weights keep you down, so let go of your worries and fly,"


I remember
the long talks we had,
and even how meaningless they were.
How much we laughed during them.

I can’t help laughing as I remember our words.
But I also can’t help crying,
as I think how much I miss them.
I remember when we used to sing along to our favorite songs together.
when you’d embarrass me in front of my friends.
when you’d called my shoes “sneaks” .
when you’d smile.

You will never know how special you were,
and still are,
to me.

I remember when you took me out into the waves at the beach
and how you told me not to be afraid,
and I wasn’t.

You have taught me so much,
and have inspired me in a such a huge way.
I will miss you forever.

I love you
Mom,
oodles and gaboodles.

Very heartfealt. I could really feel the emotion, and I wouldn't change anything--it was that good. Keep up the good work, and I'm so sorry for your loss.

When I read your author's note and then read your poem which overflowed with emotion I couldn't help think of my mom and how much it would hurt to loose her...Tink I'm sorry for your lose, I know nothing I say will make you stop hurting any less. So moving on, I love the pic you choose and your words flowed together effortlessly.  You had no grammatical errors. During the entire poem I could feel so much emotions that it brought tears to my eyes. Great work, Tink.

Awww. I want to give you a virtual hug! You really put emotion into this. I'm sure your mother is proud of you for writing this. It's perfect the way it is, like CarrieAnn13. I love the image you portrayed. It's amazing! :)

Aw, this is so sad.  I know nothing will bring your mother back, but you have my condolences.  I have absolutely no criticism for this poem.  The grammar is excellent and you wrote so emotionally I had tears in my eyes.  Good job, Tink1350!
