Thoughts on this Mother's Day

Mother's Day holds a different meaning for anyone whose mom has passed away. This is the 7th Mother's Day that I've been without my mom and even though it makes me sad, I try to remember the good times.

I'll Celebrate Instead of Cry

Another Mother's Day is here,
And I still miss having you near.
You were the best mom you could be,
And I never once doubted your love for me.
I could spend each Mother's Day in sorrow,
Crying and wishing you were here,
But instead I choose to celebrate your life,
A life I still hold so dear.
I know you'd rather see me smile
Than stand here with tears in my eyes.
So I'll do my best to honor your memory,
And you'll live on as long as I am alive.
