Remembering Mother

Mother, I will love you forever.You were
beauty,strength, and joy.From time to time I
see your features on the face of my youngest
boy,Sometimes I'll walk into a room and know
your soul is there by the sweet scent of
gardenia that gently fills the air, I will
never be able to forget you,for even if I
try your memory is prevalent in every tear
I cry, and like my tears your love flows
through me like a warm and gentle stream, A
stream of life that will never cease to
exist, I'd do anything to have you back again
you are deeply missed, There is an empty
feeling, a space in my heart that only you
can fill, It is painful living without you,
My soul is in despair, The only way to ease
my pain is to envision you everywhere They
say you are in a better place now, I know this
to be true, I have faith in the Lord and
that is why my prayers see me through.
