My Mother is Dying


I wrote this poem as a tribute to the wonderful story, “McKayla’s Miracle” by HLD.  It is Maureen’s attempt to deal with the death of one of her mothers.

My Mother is Dying

My mother is dying
     I don’t understand
Why is my love
     Not enough to save her

My mother is dying
     It just isn’t fair
Why does God hate me
     He’s taking her away

My mother is dying
     My mom is so sad
How can I go on
     With only one mom left

My mother is dying
     I feel all alone
I want to be strong for her
     But I’m too sad to smile

My mother is dying
     We have so little time
I want her name as mine
     To be her daughter always

My mother is dying
     Doctors have failed her
Please don’t forget her
     I love her so much

My mother has died
     She’s smiling at last
Her pain is all gone
     I miss her so much

My mother lives on now
     In my memory and mom’s
I will see her again
     When my life is done
