It has been 17 years since my mom passed away. I still miss her advice, her gentleness. You see, I’m the youngest in the family. I’m the “mama’s boy”. I remember when I was a little child, my mom was my constant comfort. She was there when I came home from school. She tucked me in at night. When I’m sick, her gentle touch comforted me.
She used to check if I’m cold by cupping my ears with both her hands and that warmth sends me to sleep. To this day, when I put both my hands over my ears, I tend to become sleepy. And I always remember her when I do that.
I always remind my friends whose moms are still with them, to cherish and show their moms how much they mean to them. Life is too short. Give back and show them the love they selflessly gave you while you have the chance.
Mother’s Day is almost here again. I miss you mom! Mother’s Day in 2012 will be celebrated on May 13th.
Don’t think of her as gone away
Her journey’s just begun
Life holds so many facets
This earth is only one
Just think of her as resting
From the sorrows and the tears
In a place of warmth and comfort
Where there are no days and years
Think how she must be wishing
That we could know, today
Now nothing but our sadness
Can really pass away
And think of her as living
In the hearts of those she touched
For nothing loved is ever lost
And she is loved so very much
