My Mum

My Mum's funeral was yesterday. She was an amazing lady, a beautiful soul. Someone that did not deserve the pain and sadness she endured due to illness. This is something I will never understand and may never get over.

As a child you can never imagine not having your parents around you and as you get older (I'm 34 now), that feeling never changes. My only comfort is knowing that all the fear and pain has ended and she can now be at peace with my Dad.

Although I have never met any of you, I feel a comfort here which I can not explain. In gratitude for this welcomed distraction, I would like to share with all of you some words I wrote for my Mum’s memorial yesterday.

Your laugh which always ended with a very distinctive sigh
Your detailed discussions with yourself, that made me laugh and cry
Your motherly love and commitment was so feminine and so secure
It’s the qualities like these Mum; I will miss from you for sure.

Your infinite wisdom and constant reminders of much hoped grammar and greatness
Your dedication for my success and god knows infinite patience
You always kept your promises no matter how hard life would get
It’s the qualities like these Mum; that I know I won’t forget.

For these are what I cherish, these qualities from you
Your pain and sadness is our tragedy and can’t be broken through
I’d give anything at this moment to hear your soft voice ask me to stay
It’s the qualities like these Mum; that I know won't go away.

Your beloved son,

To all of you that still have your parents, give them a call soon and remind them of how much they mean to you. They won't be around forever....

Design for every step.

Re: My Mum

A tragic event... something that is incomprehensable until it happens first hand.

I hope you have the support and bonds with others that will help you through what must be the toughest stages of life.

My deepest condolences to you and your family, and such a beautiful poem.
