Mother's Day 2008
We are just two of many parents
Whose wonderful child has died.
We may find support and kindness
But still we hurt deep down inside.
There are also so many children
Whose parents are no longer at their side
They too feel the pain and sadness
In everything they do in their lives
We walk a path not chosen
We live each day with grief
Still the days come and go
And we feel there’s no relief.
We can’t change what has happened
Although we wish we could go back
To a time when we could hug our kids
And talk, and love and laugh.
Our friends will never realize
What they have added to our lives
Their our earth angels who can share our grief
And let us talk and ask the “Whys”
This Mother’s Day my wish would be
That we share the love we’ve lost
With those that need that helping hand
For kindness and caring have no monetary cost.
Mother’s Day 2008
