Tribute to Her

My angel, my all.
I never thought I'd see you fall.
You were my world, my reason to be.
Looking back I finally see.

The bottle was too much
And you couldn't take.
The risks that came, too,
Were a mistake.

I saw you going away,
But I couldn't stop
The inevitable fact
I'd learn one day.

As you slowly began to fade,
We all knew the tragic flaw you had made.

Walking through those sterile halls
Tears running down my face.
My life would change forever,
As I left that awful place.

I think about you all the time.
I miss you more as days go by.

You passed so young,
You've missed so much.
Your own granddaughter
You couldn't clutch.

Your daughters miss you too.
They miss you so.
Look down on them,
And watch them grow.

You're my Mom
In which I cast my cares.
Now you're in heaven
And you hear my prayers.

You're the person who I need.
With my God do I plead.
If there's one rule you could bend,
Send my Mom and my heart will mend.

This is a breath-taking poem. You portrayed the pain very well.  How true this is to many people, how motherless children plead this very pray! Good job on the poem. God Bless, -Don
