Mother’s Day Poem for a Mom in Heaven
This is a Mother’s Day Poem written for my mom, Shirley Layne DeMumbrum Bell. For those of you who have lost your mothers you know that Mother’s Day is hard. If you are a mom yourself, you celebrate being a mom but doing so without your own mother isn’t easy.
My mom was only 51 when she died and not a day goes by that I don’t think about her. She was born in 1939 and died of colon cancer in 1990.
Happy Mother’s Day in Heaven, Mom. I miss you still….always will.
One Thousand Thank Yous
If I had one thousand “thank yous”
I know just what I’d do.
I’d box them up with hugs and kisses
And send them straight to you.
There is no way I can repay you
for all the love and support you gave to me.
You were my biggest fan, my most loving critic
My lighthouse when I was lost on the stormy sea.
I miss your love, your laughter
Your kind heart and gentle touch.
I miss you every day, so very, very much
But I think I miss you most in May
When flowers bloom and mothers are honored
Every blossom, every Hallmark card reminds me
To give thanks to God above
For the years we shared together
And the power of a mother’s love.
