I DID NOT REALIZE
Mother, when I saw that you were sick I did not want to see,
Never did I want to know that soon you would no longer be.
I did not realize that anything could be so wrong, now you are gone,
We spoke for a few minutes on your last birthday, you had no words.
It did not seem as though you were at that time ill, kept that to yourself,
I did not realize in a flash you would be gone, no more a mother or mom.
What were you feeling, what was in your heart three weeks before you died,
I did not realize what was killing you inside, what you were trying to hide.
Very touching and relatable.
Thanks so much for reading.
Keith, your words express how much you loved your Mom. God’s peace!
Thanks a lot.

It’s hard to lose your Mum. Sometimes you don’t realise how big a part of your life they are until they are no longer there
Really touching and beautiful. We take our loved ones, especially our parents for granted, not realizing until its too late, thanks for this beautiful reminder.
Thank you for reading.
