 There’s a hole in my heart where my mom use to be

 A sadness inside that keeps following me

  

I try to outsmart it and try to forge on

But it hurts so much knowing forever she’s gone

 

I can still feel her hands and I still see her face

And I look for signs of her all over the place

 

Does she know how I miss her does she know how I feel?

Does she know that I can’t even believe this is real?

 

Wherever she is now dear God I just pray

That she will be there waiting on my dying day

 

There’s a hole in my heart where my mom use to be…….

Oh this is so beautiful and moving. I'm at work and don't need to start crying now.

But I can bet you'll find out soon that the answers to your questions are "yes."

Hugs

Hi Rocky, I'm doing the best that I can, thank you.  I sure hope you're doing as well as you can be. I read this the other day and it made me think.....I DO want to remember the good things and smile and laugh when I think of mom....this really helped.

You can shed tears that she is gone
or you can smile because she has lived.

You can close your eyes and pray that she’ll come back
or you can open your eyes and see all she’s left.

Your heart can be empty because you can’t see her
or you can be full of the love you shared.

You can turn your back on tomorrow and live yesterday
or you can be happy for tomorrow because of yesterday.

You can remember her and only that she’s gone
or you can cherish her memory and let it live on.

You can cry and close your mind,
be empty and turn your back
or you can do what she’d want:
smile, open your eyes, love and go on.
