A loss of your mother is probably one of the most difficult things you have or will encounter in your life. I lost my mother in 1996, almost 15 years ago. Although I have integrated the loss of her into my life, there are still moments when you have a parent to call on for advice or just do some girl stuff, like shopping. My heart goes out to everyone who doesn’t have the physical presence of their mom with them.
I found this poem on Marty Tousley’s website, and thought I would share it with you. Hope you like the message…..Afterall, the best way we can honor our moms is to have a great life ourselves…..as that is all any mom wants for her children…
Loss of Mother Poem
Now that I am gone,
remember me with smiles and laughter.
And when you need me,
put your arms around anyone
and give to them what you need to give to me.
There are so many who need so much.
I want to leave you something —
something much better than words or sounds.
Look for me in the people I’ve known
or helped in some special way.
Let me live in your heart
as well as in your mind.
You can love me most
by letting your love reach out to our loved ones,
by embracing them and living in their love.
Love does not die, people do.
So, when all that’s left of me is love,
give me away as best you can.
