You were my mother, you still are my mother,
the state in which you are in,
does not change the title of you,
your death opened my young eyes,
it made me realize the truth around me,
people can be here one day,
and gone the next.
I can say that my love for you has deepened,
I now appreciate the little things in life,
seeing as how they can be taken from us so quickly,
memories still flash over my eyes at times,
from when you were alive and smiling and happy,
I still remember that look in your eyes,
the one you had when you were proud of me.
I miss that look, I miss everything about you,
tears still build up in my eyes,
when the thought of you swims across my mind,
seeing as how you are gone from this Earth forever,
makes me cherish every moment I still have here,
when it is my time to go, I will go proudly,
because I would know that I would be coming home to you.
