To the Mom who is Gone on Mother's Day


I can’t say I am better without you but I am better. It’s mother's day again and my head is exploding with overflowing memories of you. Did I even do enough to tell you I appreciate you? I hope at least I showed it with my actions.

I can’t say I am better without you but I am getting better. I’m getting better at that character flaw you told me I had. You were right and I was young and unexperienced. Did I even listen to you when you gave me your wisdom? I hope my subconscious did although my hard head did not.  

I can’t say I am better without you but I am better. Your efforts really got me ahead. The sacrifice, the hard work all paid off Ma. Not only have I started better in life than you did, I am now living your dream. Did I even know that I am your dream in reality? I hope you knew that I am eternally grateful.

I can’t say I am better without you but I am better because your blood flows in my veins and your legacy I carry in my shoulders. Happy Mother's Day in heaven Ma.

* I dedicate this to my maternal and paternal grandmothers who are in heaven. Also to Mrs. Jewell Cummings, my dear American Grandmother who is in heaven. I also dedicate this to everyone who is missing someone on Mother's Day.
