Dear Mother, It is very hard,
As I do not know where to start,
These few words I send to you,
Come from within my heart.
Now that you are no longer with me,
You are always on my mind,
I remember you were very gentle,
And to me, so very kind.
Sometimes I said things to hurt you,
But you took it in your stride,
And although you never shown it,
You must have hurt inside.
You helped me through my heartaches,
And problems I could not bear,
For I know that in the background,
You were always there.
I suppose I took you for granted,
My enemy and my friend,
My eyes are filled with tears,
For this letter I cannot send.
You are no longer with me,
For you have gone to a better place,
I miss the love you gave me,
And the smile upon your face.
Mother, I love you very much,
That is all I want to say,
These greetings I send you,
Because it is Mothers Day…
