A Mother's Death

Spread your wings and fly,
I hope you left the pain behind.
I know it wasn't your intention,
to leave us broken and alone.
Shadows of memories fill the space where you should be.
I am trying to be strong,
but you were the one to show me what strength was.
I am a part of you, without you I am not whole.
Life is cruel and mean.
Your time wasn't up.
Darkness fills my head and soul.
Walking around as a shell.
I don't understand how life still goes on.
The world spins and spins, never slowing down
to the beat of our own sad life.
I don't believe in faith, but I hope you're somewhere better.
I hope you can still look down at all the steps I have yet to take.
The path ahead looks dark, I have a long ways to go without the help of your light.
Wake me up.
I don't want to dream this dream anymore.

Author's Notes/Comments: 

My mom just passed away April 2nd of this year. I am having a very hard time coping. The past few weeks feel like a bad dream I cannot wake up from.
