Title: Not Buried in the Grave -poem
Post by: nosuchmember on October 02, 2018, 08:26:31 AM
Not Buried in the Grave 

 Tears for Mama . . .
 Tears for Daddy, too.
 Life has changed a lot
 Since I lost both of you.

 Now, that I'm a mama
 I understand so much more
 What a mama and daddy
 go through.

 Because now that I'm a mama
 I'm going through the worry
 and the woe of loving and
 raising my children,
 and having to let them go.

 I didn't know as a child growing
 up in your care, that being
 a mama or daddy could be so
 hard a thing to do, until I lost
 the two of you. . . You both
 were always there, when I needed

 Now, that I'm a mama, and my
 children, like yours, grew up and away.
 Now, that I'm alone-I understand,
 the satisfices mamas and daddys make
 everyday -even after their children are grown
 and move away.

 I am a mama blessed and I owe it to the
 both of you-who never stopped loving me,
 no matter what I put you through.

 Your love for me is not buried in the grave
 Your love for me touches, and warms
 my life every day.
