This is a poem written by someone known to me for her mother. I truly fell in love with it the moment I read it. Posting it here for everyone to read and appreciate the beautiful sentiments of a daughter for her mother.
You slipped into eternal glory
Without saying a word to me
It is hard to believe that you are not there
As every dawn I looked for you
In every gentle breeze I thought you passed by.
Every dew drop reminded me of your pure love
Every twilight I smelled your fragrance, and,
I believe that the soft night star is like your gentle smile,
Ma do you know
I miss you in my hustle bustle
I miss you in my simple meals
I miss you in my evening prayers
I missed you on Christmas eve.
It was too hard for me to let you go
But heaven could no longer wait for you
As I sighed and cried
Calm assurance embraced me and
Gave me the solace and comfort saying
You are in a better place, safe in his ever lasting arms.
Love you and miss you Ma, this is to remember you ever since you left us two years ago.
