Final Adieu

treatment-finger-keep-hand-161477.jpeg

I held her in arms as she whispered ‘goodbye’

Her last breath as she let out a long sigh

Her face swollen, her skin cold and battered

By all means she left our whole world shattered.

I stroked her hand and wiped her eyes

Wanting so much for them to open and see

That I was alone

With agony growing inside of me

One last time I held her hand

And kissed her cheeks 

I wanted to carry her away from there

My loving Mother who was just too weak

I heard the people all around me

The silence of people now so loud

I walked away, my heart now broken

I tried to face the waiting crowd.

I watched those around shed tears

And utter words of sorrow

How could they know that I was dying inside

Now that I know you wouldn’t face tomorrow!

  4. So sorry for your loss, even I am going through similar phase and I can understand your emotions, your feelings. It seems like we are living dead. You can visit my blog recent posts to read about my emotions.

      • I am myself going though this and it seems everything has stopped. But, writing help me vent out my feelings so I am writing almost regularly. Also many people here suggested that writing is therapeutic and whatever comes to my mind, I shall write. For now , I will ask you also to write and share your feelings. You are not alone. Take care.

      • Thats absolutely true, I feel my pain vanishing a bit whenever I pen it down. I am glad to have you all here and sharing this!

      • You may read my recent posts , I have written 10-12 so far, and you may share your own feelings. I found few bloggers who are understanding me so well. /the most important point is , “Grieve and be sad if this is all you feel like at the moment. Let the emotions move naturally. Do not direct them forcefully.” and another is that almost everyone across the globe has said, “My mother will always be connected with me, I cannot see her but I have to feel her presence.”

      • You know one thing that I learnt in life is that there is always someone watching out for us from above, it might seem philosophical to some. But this faith in itself helps us believe in life! I lost my mom and life seemed unfair but that belief that she is there somewhere out there has given me strength and faith. It has made my life way more positive then it was. Letting it all out is the key to let go of the pain and embrace the love that universe had to offer.

      • Yes this belief is our strength and I trust my Mom more than anyone else, even more than God. I know she can never leave me alone in pain. She will be there with me always.
