Two years ago today

No flags at half mast
No silent minutes of respect for her
No tributes or sombre tones on radio or TV news
Or dedicated column inches about her happy life

Two years ago today
She left us quietly
the way she had lived.
No fuss

but leaving a gaping hole that nothing can repair
nor time can heal

My lovely, laughing Mum.

So beautifully expressed, so sad and loving at the same time. I will call my mum now, although it's so late. Thanks for reminding me how important mothers are. I'm sending you a very strong cyber-hug. Wish you all the best. Antonella

What a blessing she clearly was to you, I'm so sorry for your loss. Your poem is beautiful, very touching...and you know as a mom there's no better tribute than a child loving you like that.

You do her proud.
