I wrote this when my Mother died, I don't think it's of literary greatness or anything. This is truly how I felt/feel. Just wanted to post it somewhere. Maybe someone else knows the feeling...

No drink can satisfy my thirst
No food can satiate my hunger
No music brings joy to my ears
No amount of sun can light my eyes
The soft grass is dull to my touch
And the flowers appear to be dying too
The darkness of night makes my skin crawl with fear
My heart barely beats with blood that is thick and cold
My mind races getting to nowhere
And my body is heavy and tired
My smile is as crafted as the lines in a play
The world seems inside out and upside down...backwards
Rest will not come, only anger and sorrow to fill the void left inside
Peace is so far away, so far away

So, sorry for your loss.
Take solace in the fact that her journey here is complete,
and she is in the place, you where before your birth,
the place to which, we must all return.

Have a drink for her.
Have a meal for her.
Enjoy a song for her.
Feel the soft grass under foot
and the sunshine on your face.
Be at peace.

It read like a Psalm.
Thank you.

The pain of losing your mom is so very hard. I know how it feels.
And when the anger and sorrow leave seems the pain still stays. We will always miss our moms, and we can live each day with our smile and just keep them in our hearts as we continue on...
Peace to you x
