I really don't know how you manage to write such beautiful pieces so prolifically and seemingly, easily. It is a genuine gift that you have and you must publish your poems for the greater public to enjoy.
With warmest regards,
Mamusiu, how do I ever start tomorrow without you?
Everyday you blessed me with your presence as I grew
I can feel you right beside me even tho' you are far away
You gave me a lifetime of memories to revisit everyday.
I can't keep from wiping my face from trickling tears
Wishing with all of my empty heart you were still here.
You gave me the courage to find a path and walk alone
Your love and devotion was the foundation in our home
I know I'm being selfish in not letting you go
You've lived such a long life and it's your time I know
In the last days of your life you were haunted with the past
Memories that were gently hidden came out at last.
My heart cried for you as I watched you relive the pain
I couldn't imagine in this the justice or the gain
The sadness this evokes brings me anger and more tears
There was nothing you could do to erase those years
Life has a way of sorting out the things we cannot change
Sometimes in the midst of this we find everything strange
I know in days to come I will have a different point of view
I just need to have a little time to let go of you.
I watched you struggle as you sorted out your memories
At the time not understanding this was so you could be free
You didn't need the memories of war and hunger
And all the sufferings from when you were younger
You let these things out a little bit at a time
When life was calmer and there were no more hills to climb
All the darkness of mortality you relinquished to the wind
Let it find a better place with those who have sinned.
Your spirit can now move in the freedom you were once denied
I will always hear your voice and know you'll be my guide
How could I not be okay when I learned from the best
That understanding power of survival is what makes one blessed.
You are the thread of golden fibre of the cloth I come from
And I was always so proud to call you my Mom.
My heart is with you .....
