Empathy

I am saddened by your loss--
I know there is a void
That no one else can fill.
I know that are you lost,
And filled with grief that is beyond
What you can possibly tell.
I just wanted to tell you
That I am here. I care--
That there is a place
Beyond your sorrow
And sunshine awaits you there.
Someday sweet memories
Will make you smile again.
And though the pain will linger,
You will hug that moment to your heart
And learn to breathe again.

Just Because--

Because I have memories of you
Making me breakfast
And tying my shoes
And brushing my hair--
Because you fed me,
Clothed me, loved me,
And taught me to be a lady--
Because you had faith
That I could become
Anything, and nudged
Me out of the nest
When it was way past time--
Because you held me
After I made my mistakes
And listened to me cry--
And loved me just the same.
For all this and so much more
I thank you Mom.
I hope I always make you proud.

Happy Mother's Day
