To Honor:Individual(s)
Location:, Canada
This is a tribute to my Mother Deanna Gail who passed away 38 years ago today. 
I really don't remember a lot about my Mom as I was only 5 when she passed away of Kidney Failure.
My Father joined my Mom in 1998.

These are poems that I have collected in memory of her.
I Love You And Miss You Mom

You have left me with many memories;
I miss you everyday.
Sometimes I think of you,
Not more than today.
You'll never be forgotten,
In my heart you are there to stay.
I wish I could talk to you,
Where ever you may lay.
But that would take a miracle;
Each day I have to ask why,
And why I couldn't say goodbye.
I miss you so much;
I can't do it on my own.
I think of you constantly;
And I know you are not alone.
With that I want to say
I'll think of you everyday.


A brief moment of darkness
was all that I knew,
before Heaven's Gate
came into my view.

Loved ones and friends
I had missed for many years,
welcomed me with open arms
and many happy tears.

All the hurt, fear and pain
that I have ever known,
is gone from my life,
I am finally home.

I gazed upon the Lord's
sweet smiling face,
and for the first time in my life
I knew and felt His grace.

I know that you miss me,
but please dry your eyes.
I will always be watching and loving you
from my home in the sky.

A cool breeze on your face,
a touch of light rain,
I will send as a reminder
that we will be reunited again.

Life on earth is but one
brief moment in time,
I am finally home,
Eternity is mine.


As I sat watching by your bed,
A million thought ran through my head.
Of just how much were you aware?
Did you know that I was there?

Could you feel the love I sent,
In whispered word, Or prayer bent?
Upon my cross as I asked God,
To spare your life for my selfish cause?

So that I could tell you just once more,
"I love you Mommy! " as I had before.
And we could chat like days of old,
Over coffee cups all rimmed with gold.

And laugh and joke, or just to share
some small hurt and perhaps a tear.
To talk of the past, or things yet to do.
To sniffle, and sneeze, and say "Bless You! "

All these dreams now hang in shreds,
As I sit here with bowed down head.
And ponder on these sad thoughts.
Just to wonder, "Was it all for naught? "

You truly were an angel
sent from God in heaven above.
Your shocking death just broke the hearts of everyone you loved.
When I found out that you had died
I thought that they were wrong.
You were so alive - and then
just like that, you were gone.
A flame blown out in seconds,
Confirming our worst fears -
A light that shines no more on earth
for which we shed many tears.
But still you are my beacon
And I need you right now.
You hear all the prayers I say
Because they are answered somehow.
I wish that you could be here,
But in a way you are.
Your symbol of a rose goes everywhere with me,
so I know you can't be far.
It still is quite a shock to me
that you had to die;
But no one will forget you
And I love you, and goodbye.

Death , Life

It stalks the night
It stalks the day
It seeks out life
And whisks it away
It's known as death
And other things too
But it's all the same
What matters is you.
How do you see it?
What does it mean?
It's best if you know
For death is unseen.
It can take you at day
It can take you at night
Knowing death well
Can lend you some light
The passage to death
Is always unclear
And it's best to know
That you're very near.
For death is at hand
It is for us all
Know it's face well
So you don't stumble and fall
Now think hard on death
And know that it's near
And the meaning of life
Will be all to clear
And that is to live
For your hearts desire
Not to stumble or fall
But to burn with a fire.
A fire for life
To live for each day
To reach for your dreams
No matter what people say
Life is a question
And death holds a clue
Reach not for the answer
For your life's not due
Live for the moment
And die for it too
For it's the moment that counts
It, and you
Now I'm all done
I've said what I'll say
Just remember one thing
Live for the day!

Alive No More

She lies there unable to speak
Gasping struggling for her last
Breath of air.

The disease won -
Her heart stops beating,
She struggles no more,
She is no longer alive.
Her spirit is gone.

The funeral sad - very sad.
Putting makeup on a person
That is alive no more -
How pitiful is that?
She is no longer alive.
No kind of makeup will change that.

People come offering their condolences,
Thinking maybe it will ease the pain a little bit.
They are wrong, so wrong.
No words will ease the pain
Of knowing that your mother is dead.

Your mother the one that gave birth to you -
She is dead.
Words will not heal,
Hugs will not help,
Tears will not bring her back.
Because my mother for
She is alive no more.

Mother's Watch

I sit beside you, Mom
On death’s doorstep you lay
I set my head upon your wrist
As I bow my head to pray

The world to me shut off
The silence here is thick
Alone just you and I
And your watch’s rhythmic tick

I block out all my pain
And loss I’m sure to feel
I concentrate now deeply
On the tick your watch reveals

I sit here now for days
And hear the rhythmic sound
I contemplate you being gone
The thought now seems profound

The time for you is near
To enter Heaven’s Gate
I’ll stay here by your side
Until your journey is complete

It’s months now since you’ve passed
My wounds are healing slow
I want so much to hear your voice
To see your smile’s glow

I lay my head upon my wrist
When my feelings are too strong
I hear your watch’s rhythmic tick
And know you’re never gone

Missing Mamma

The sun came up this morning;
It wasn't very bright.
My dark mood casts a shadow;
It's hard to see the light.

We all have just one mother
And, now that her life on earth is done,
The emptiness and loss I feel
Make it hard to see the sun.

Tomorrow is a brand new day;
May the pain and sadness lighten.
I will remember all her love,
And then the sky will brighten.

Gone is not forgotten;
Her love reminds behind;
She's traveled in a new direction -
Love knows no space or time.

I will always love her.
She will care for me from above.
She will send me starlight and rainbows
To remind me of her love.
