A poem

Our Mom is a survivor,
Or so We've heard it said. But We can hear her crying
When all others are in bed. We watch her lay awake at night
And go to hold her hand. She doesn't know We are with her
To help her understand. But like the sands upon the beach
That never wash away... We watch over our surviving Mom,
Who thinks of Us each day. She wears a smile for others...
A smile of disguise. But through heaven's open door
We see tears flowing from her eyes. Our Mom tries to cope with our death
To keep our memory alive. But anyone who knows her, Knows it's her way to survive.
As We watch over our surviving Mom Through heaven's open door... We try to tell her
Angels protect us forevermore We know that doesn't help her... Or ease the burden she bares.
So if you get a chance, talk to her... And show her that you care.
For no matter what she says... No matter what she feels.
Our surviving Mom has a broken heart
That time won't ever heal

You look beautiful and so very happy. Who could of imagined what was ahead for you, and all of us? If someone had told me, I wouldn't have believed them.
I hope you can reclaim some of that happiness in the future.

You are so beautiful! The poem just broke my heart. Although the last chapter will always be a part of you, you are on your way to an exciting new one. One step at a time.

Beautifully sad poem. Thank you for sharing. I believe our angels really do watch us. They are closer than we think- I believe that with all my heart. My sweet Jenna Belle left us 11 weeks ago. ~sincerely
