Add My Condolences

We Will Miss You, Dear Mom I just thought I’d say I love you and goodbye. We will miss you dearly. I promise I won’t cry. I will never forget our talks, Conversations on the phone. How happy you were to see me When I finally came home. You worried so much about me. I worried about you too. I know this is the hardest thing We’ve ever had to do. I know you’ll always be with me Wherever I will go. No one needs to show me; I will always know. I don’t know what to do, Mom. I never thought I’d lose you. Where I’ll go from here I still haven’t got a clue. I hope you’ll watch over me, Be my guiding light Giving me the strength I need To win this endless fight. You’re my guardian angel, Mom, Sitting on my shoulder, Whispering your words of wisdom To use as I get older. I don’t want to say goodbye, But we’ll meet again someday. We’ll pick up where we left off Before you went away. Mallissa A. Moore
