Death of Mother Poems

Gone Too Soon

The sun set fast, a sudden gloom,
Her voice now echoes through each room.
Questions linger, answers shy,
Why so soon did you say goodbye?

Unfinished tales, words unsaid,
Now reside in a silent bed.
A heart so full, now a void,
Life's cruel hand has destroyed.

Memories vivid, love so deep,
In our hearts, she'll always keep.
Gone too soon, yet forever near,
In each tear, in each cheer.
The deep silence
The deep silence

Inspiration Behind

When Silence Fell

She left quietly,
no fanfare, no warning.
The house stood still,
a monument to absence.

Rooms, once alive
with her laughter,
now echo
with a void.

Her chair remains empty,
a testament
to what was.
Photos on the wall,

mute witnesses
to a love so strong.
In the kitchen,
her apron hangs, untouched.

Last Goodbye

In that dim room, we gathered near,
Eyes filled with love, and also fear.
Her breath was slow, her skin so pale,
Time seemed to pause, emotions frail.

We held her hand, so cold, so still,
Wishing for more, time to fulfill.
Her eyes met mine, a silent plea,
A final glance, a memory.

She took one breath, then none at all,
A peaceful face, the silent call.
Tears flowed freely, hearts did break,
A mother’s love, no one can fake.

The clock ticked on, the room so quiet,
Our grief now raw, we can't deny it.
We kissed her cheek, said our goodbyes,
Her spirit free, above the skies.

Her touch remains, in every part,
Her love engraved within each heart.
Though she has gone, her soul's still nigh,
Forever missed, our last goodbye.

Veil of Sorrow

A veil of sorrow draped so tight,
Blurring days and shrouding night.

Her smile now just a fading trace,
In every corner, I see her face.

Memories linger, shadows fall,
In silent rooms, I hear her call.

Her hands, once warm, now memories cold,
A story of love that won't be told.

Tears fall freely, like morning dew,
A mother’s love forever true.

The world seems dim, colors fade,
In grief's deep pool, I am weighed.

Her voice, a ghost in the wind,
Whispering love that will not end.

Her scent remains on clothes unworn,
A reminder of a love reborn.

Each day passes, yet time stands still,
An empty space nothing can fill.

In dreams, she visits, soft and kind,
A fleeting presence, so hard to find.

The veil of sorrow, ever near,
Yet in my heart, she’s always here.

Gone from sight but not from soul,
A mother’s love makes me whole.

Candles in the Wind

Flickering lights, so fragile and thin,
Life's fleeting moments, where do we begin?

Her smile a glow, warm and bright,
Now just a flicker, in the night.

Candles in the wind, memories sway,
Fragile flames, that cannot stay.

Her voice, a song, now a silent hum,
In the quiet, our hearts succumb.

Each breath she took, a flame so pure,
Now dances lightly, ever unsure.

The wind blows hard, the lights grow dim,
Memories flicker, edges trim.

Her touch, a warmth, now just a trace,
In the gusts, we find her grace.

Candles in the wind, tears in our eyes,
A mother’s love, never dies.

Though the flames may waver, fade away,
Her light in us, will always stay.

Moments of joy, times of strife,
Candles in the wind, this fleeting life.

The Coldest Death

The coldest death, my world undone,
Her smile a ghost in frozen air,
In sorrow’s grip, I am the one.

Her touch now gone, my heart's begun,
To ache in places once so fair,
The coldest death, my world undone.

Her voice, once warm, now barely spun,
Through empty halls, a silent prayer,
In sorrow’s grip, I am the one.

Life's color fades, no longer fun,
Her absence more than I can bear,
The coldest death, my world undone.

Days drag on, hope's light outrun,
Her memory, a constant glare,
In sorrow’s grip, I am the one.

Her love remains, though life's outdone,
In dreams, I find her standing there,
The coldest death, my world undone,
In sorrow’s grip, I am the one.
