Another “Mother’s” Day
By: John Plourde 2008


This poem is dedicated to all grieving moms

Another “Mother’s” Day without your loving child is here,
No matter how long since your child has died, the pain is always near.

I watch the expression on her face,
As she rises in the morning, something is out of place.

She tries to smile as she hides her terrible pain,
The tears in her eyes begin to fall like a gentle rain.

Mother’s Day was always a day of happiness and joyful bliss,
After her child’s death, she cries as she longs for their gentle kiss.

No more hand made cards or gifts to make her smile,
She treasures the past memories that will bring her peace for a little while.

Watching all those other children and families lovingly embrace their mom,
Leaves her feeling so jealous, angry and ready to explode like a bomb.

She can’t help feel like she is out of place,
You can see the sadness her face.

Her other children feel her deep pain too,
It is so hard, they know not what to do.

Their love for their mom will always be true,
She knows how much she is loved, though, she is blue.

Mother’s Day should be a day of enjoying her happy children behave,
Not a day of shedding tears at her beloved, dead child’s grave.

For all moms who has a child die,
We love you and understand why you cry.

We wish you much love, comfort and peace each and every day,
We know that you love and miss your beautiful child on,
Another “Mother’s” Day.

Wishing you all continious peace and healing,
John-Danielle's Daddy

This is the link to the thread where the poem was posted. It only received one response which was surprising considering it was read more than any other poem posted in that year. I liked it very much. I will always think of beautiful Danielle-Marie, with love.

this poem is so on the mark. I feel bad because i think more of the daughter who is gone than the one who is still here on holidays. after 7 years I thought I would cope better, but this year was just as bad.
