Remember Mama

Mamas have a way of passing on, Leaving only memories.

Remember Mama

Mother's Day should be more than once a year. When she's gone, you only have memories, so be sure that you make good ones that will last.

I remember Mama,
More than once a year.
Sometimes when I meditate,
Her memory brings a tear.

I'll always have my mama
Watching over from above,
Still giving me directions,
With her understanding love.

For those who still have mamas,
Let them know about your love.
Put your arms around her
And thank the Lord above.

Mothers only happen once,
They need to know your heart.
So show them while you have the chance,
Before you're torn apart.

Take it from experience,
You'll miss her when she's gone.
Make memories of her while she's here,
Cause her absence time is long.

From TV in the 50's..., "I Remember Mama." Yes, I am old enough to remember that! My own is currently transitioning away from now and into the then :-{

They all have a tendancy to do that, David. I lost mine a few years back.

I have composed many poems,
on moms,
one friend’s mom is presently in coma,
I composed for her too,
in the bags of writings
all my poems get bogged,
if I can trace it
shall post it for you

we all love moms more
when they are living
very much more
when they are no more,
as mom's never die,
in human hearts
they always live as before
even mine I lost decades ago...

Don you have me in tears right now. I so miss Mama and I thought it would get easier over the years but sadly, it doesn't. I was with my Mama when she had taken her last breath and I can honestly say, I have no regrets. Not from my past with her, up to her passing. To me, that is the key, have no regrets, celebrate them while they are still here on earth. A lovely tribute to your mother. Thank you for sharing.:)
