Good-bye Mom






A
world
without
my
Mom...





seems
to
lack
color.






the
news
less
gripping...





without
Mom's
opinion
to
give it
flavor






Baby
Bunny
seems
to hop slower
today.







and
the
hummingbird
barely
hums.





Kitty
seems
a little
less
cute...






and
even
my bike
doesn't have
the same
allure.




It's
been
a long
two
months...







since
Mom's
long slope
down
began...




Weeks
that saw
spurts
of hope...






dashed

every

time




How many
times
did I
say
good-night...





did
we
all
say
good-night...










wondering...






if it
would be
the
last?





She fought
a long
last
battle.





More than once
the doctors
amazed
that she
still
hung on.






But
finally
June
5...






She
breathed
her
last.








A
wonderful
lady...







has
left
this
world...











a
wonderful
Mother...






a
wonderful
Wife...










But
her
spirit...







will
live
on...















for
generations...








to
come....

      Beautifully said Helen. God is love and love never dies. Your mother lives on. Thinking of you and your family.
