The day I lost you Mother

The day I lost you Mother short poem

The day I lost you mother
The will to live I lost too
Each moment I ask a million times
Why did you have to go away so soon?
In all that pain that you calmly suffered
You never forgot your radiant smile
Gave us hope, filled us with awe
With compassion so great and patience divine
Your selfless love I cherish, your loving care I miss
Your warm hug I crave for
Oblivious to me, I try to be you, I become you
Your reflection I carry with me
An eager ear you lent, to whatever we said
In you we found so much to share
You valued us and lived for us
And now your memories as we bear
I miss you every moment, every day
Without you, I feel so lost, so empty
The day I lost you mother
I lost a part of me, whatever was me.
