Memories on Mother's Day

Dear Mom,

Mother's day will soon be here,
The first since you passed away.
Oh, Mom, I do miss you!
You've been on my mind all day today.
Just yesterday, I was out shopping,
Found myself looking at Mother's Day cards.
Then, bam, it all came back to me.
Mom, it's been so hard.
Many memories of you and me
Have been coming back, flooding my mind;
Every laugh, hug, and tear.
You truly were one of a kind.
I remember you sitting at your organ,
Playing and singing you favorite songs.
I miss hearing that beautiful voice
That I could sit and listen to all day long.
Are you singing in heaven, Mom?
Is there an organ for you to play?
How I wish your music could ride the wind
So once more I could hear you sing, 'I'll Fly Away.'
Mom, I'll be sending you a message this Mother's Day.
It will arrive on an angel's wing.
All my love flying straight to you,
Many smiles I hope it brings.
I want you to know I haven't forgotton you.
Alive in my heart you'll always stay.
Know that my message is wrapped in much love,
And contains many hugs for you on this Mother's Day.

Love,
J
