I want to speak a few words, but too many crowd the way,
Making it hard for me to relay what’s in my mind.
The bottle neck of emotion is causing a delay;
A solution to my problem is becoming harder to find.
But I can say this: I miss you.
Each day that passes brings me closer to acceptance, but farther from comfort,
There isn’t a drink on this earth to curb the hurt,
or the pain I realize exists within my soul
making me feel old
Maybe, just maybe one day
I’ll be able to say
But not today
Today the words run amiss
But I can say this: I miss you
You’re gone today, but you’re still here within me
I look at your photo-framed face each morning and I see
Your strength, your smile; I hear your laughter in my head
Telling me that you’re not dead
Just gone in body; but not in spirit
Shhh…listen closely; can you hear it?
It’s your fire, your heart, and your very soul alive and well in me
I look in the mirror and I do see.
And suddenly, I can speak what needs to be said,
Nothing elaborate; nothing needing to be read,
Just this-I miss you…Momma.
If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW

Ennis - Thank you for sharing these heart felt emotions so beautifully. Interesting that I should stumble upon this on the anniversary of my own dear mom's death. Very similar emotions to what I feel daily. God bless and keep up the good work.
