2 Poems to Honor my Mom
I Miss You
I – It has been six years tomorrow since you went home to God.
M – Mary means wished for child.
I – I wish you knew how much you are loved; I hope you do now.
S – Serenity is what I hope you feel; you had little of it in life.
S – Strength, you had more of it than you knew.
Y- You were far more unique than people gave you credit for.
O – Outstanding at so many things Mom that I am not: cooking, sewing, crocheting, painting, drawing, handwriting, dancing etc.
U – Undeniably big heart for those you love.
Just 1 More Time
I wish we could rock in the squeaky rocking chair together once more
I wish we could crunch popcorn when watching a movie full of gore,
I tried not to watch, but you loved to scare me, that you did adore.
I wish we could have one more beach trip to watch you collect shells at the shore.
I wish we all had 1 more camping trip, it was funny watching you swat flies galore,
I wish I heard your laughter, even if it’s at me, along with dad’s guffawing roar,
I admit it, I was just a bit of a ham when I was about the age of four,
I wish I could hear you sing and play the accordion before I slept, and you shut my door.
