Oh! How I miss you so


Poem Commentary

To my beloved mother. Like every moment of our lives, here one minute and gone the next.

Oh! How I miss you so

When I drive down the street and your songs come on
When I look at the buddleia and see the swallowtail flutter by
When I feel the wind pick up my bangs and force me to recognize
I miss you
When gram sobs and the dogs look back and forth
When I hear a bell ring and I feel like a little kid
When my heart aches at night for my momma by my side
I miss you
I want to sleep next to you tonight
I want to curl up on your bed and smell your scent
I want you to hold me and rock me through the night
I miss you
When the night grows long
When Tracy sings your songs
When the moon shines down
When my heart wears a frown
But I can't see you anymore
I can't feel you anymore
You won't hold me ever again
I'm motherless
I'm fatherless
I feel helpless
I miss you momma,
I miss you so.

Wow, that was very sad, I was a little teary eyed when I read it. I am very sorry to hear that you don't have a mother or father figure in your life. I am very sorry that you lost your mom. If you need anything just to let you know that I am hear for you if you want to talk. Sunshine aka Donna

Poetry is not a turning loose of emotion, but an escape from emotion.

T. S. Eliot (1888-1965) American-English poet and playwright.
