One more day,
Is my request,
To laugh and talk and cry
At life and all its wonders,
By you and I.
One more hour,
I would accept,
If life could happen twice,
To share a cup of tea or three,
One more minute,
I would take,
To hug and hold you tight
Knowing that, inevitably,
You’d be too soon gone,
Travelling through the night.
One more second,
For a smile
To light your lovely face.
Just one more,
Then I’d let you go
Back to your life of grace.
But every day in mind
Just a thought away,
From birth until all days.

I wrote about being a mum last night – nostalgia – like you memories spring from nowhere – this is poignantly penned x
I should be fine now. It always starts just before November. My mum’s always in mind at different points but in quite a cheery, fond way. Then come November I start to feel really sad about her and the loss. By the time I reach her anniversary on St. Andrew’s Day, I’m kind of back to normal thinking about her. Still miss her though. She was some woman. :)x
(hugs) of course you miss her darling and you will, but I am so glad that your memories are now in a cheery way ~ time/life/ageing …sucks and I know I will face this too, sooner than I care to admit 😦 xxx
I know. It is hard. But it does get easier.
In the meantime, you have lots of care duty and outpourings of love and patience.x
Patience ? Possibly not as much as I should have- especially with mum… Thank you for your support darling – truly xx
Been there, Jen. No one expects you to be an angel. That’s why we have their help. 😉 I could’ve screamed sometimes. But I didn’t. I cried a lot in frustration. And poured my heart out to my husband and older kids. They helped me through it when she was at her worst. They were there in the house with me and mum and helped in her care. But it was never going to be easy. I still don’t regret it though. Love over rules patience any day of the week. Ask my kids! I might lose it now and again. But they still know I love them. And your mum knows too. Hugs.x
Bless ya sweetheart – yes I pour my heart out and will continue to – as long as she does remember that I love her.. that’s all I can wish for – thank you Scottie xxx
You’re welcome, Jen.x
Oh this is so lovely! You’ve been on a roll the last couple of days, missy! And I love the outpourings of your thoughts. Blessings, Natalie 🙂
Thank you, Natalie for all your lovely comments. Very kind of you to read all my outpourings. Busy mind the last few days. But relaxed too. :)x
