A past post that I love………

A poem for my Daughter Nikki…I wish I had known…. In Memory 2-17-2007

I thought of you as I walked on the beach
Listening to the sounds you loved so much.
waves, as they rush onto the sand and soothe my soul.
I thought of you as the Holidays approached and how much you loved them.
Halloween where you loved those goofy movies. Christmas where we always drove around to see Christmas lights and you loved to stop at that store and get hot Cocoa.
I thought of the day you left me, three days after Valentines.
I never celebrate that day now. I can’t.
I went to your room and I sat on your bed.
I waited to see if maybe you would walk in
but I knew that was a fantasy that would never come true.
I went to the place where we placed you to rest
But to me it is empty and useless.
If I thought you would be here or I could feel you somehow
maybe I would come more often. But you aren’t and you will never be.
I look at your photo and I wish I could change that day and turn back the events so they never happened.
But I can’t.
Time does NOT heal all wounds. It only heals the ability to deal with it.
Love does not die. My love will always be there for you, secured in my heart.
I wish I had known so many things when you were here.
I wish I had known we have to cherish every day and every moment.
But I didn’t know.
I never realized or knew so many things that I know now but I only realized all of it.
When you were gone. I love you. always. Love, Mom. Copyright 2010 L.S.R.

    1. That means a lot. I share my heart and I love to share with such wonderful people ! We have a wonderful group here on wordpress! So blessed to have you as friends! 🙂

  1. Very sorry for your loss. I don’t think one can ever really recover. My mother never recovered when my little sister left us. (Have I?). I don’t think I will ever recover the loss of one of our sons-in-law. Your daughter was actually born the same year as our daughter #2, 1984…
    Hugs.

    1. No, you never do. You learn to live through it because you can never get “over” it. Thank you so much for the kind words. 1984 was a great year then for both of us! God bless. 🙂
