A Mother's Goodbye.

A Mother's Goodbye.

A Poem by Thomas Fitzgerald
"

For anyone who has lost their Mother - my prayer is with you! This was written for my Grandmother (My Mother's, Mother). However I do dedicate it to all Mother's no longer with us!

"
A stare of blindness,
A touch of prayer,
A cast of silence,
Your no longer there.
A Mother's touch,
A heart of gold,
A mind of secrets,
None you told.
A home you made,
A home for all,
A home that's safe,
The home did fall.
A Mother is gone,
An angel is born,
A memory has left,
Her children torn.
A love has not stopped,
A love is still here,
A love is forever,
Her love is near.

I wrote this almost like a prayer, for those great Mother's no longer with us.

Very nice rhythm to this poem and very touching.

Great poem Thomas, beautiful flow and rhyming, fine tribute. I'd be surprised if you don't get asked if it might be borrowed for tributes to other people's mothers.

Very poignant. Really like the simplicity of this - it somehow makes it more sincere and heartfelt that long stanzas filled with unnecessary words. Great write :)

Nearly made me shed tears, very beautiful Thomas. I do have to say, that your quite a good poet. I haven't lost my mother, but my friend's mother I was very close to an my own grandmother. This is a very sweet writing for all mothers, excellent job.

This was so touching and it goes by so fast, just like life. You nearly had me in tears.
As always, a pleasure reading your works.

Losing people close to you is inevitable unless you simply have no heart. A wonderful tribute Thomas. I particularly like this stanza:

A Mother is gone,
An angel is born,
A memory has left,
Her children torn.

I lost my Mom to Cancer when I was 24. She never got to see but only one of her grandchildren and we all miss her still today. She was the glue holding us all together as a family, and when she left we were 'torn' in more ways than one.

I think you have a typo.... 'your no longer there' should be 'you're no longer there'.

A great piece though IMO
