Poem: I Wish

Mother, I never imagined you’ll be standing at my grave
Praying, chatting with me, fearless and brave

Mother, I know you are so miserable and sad
And no one can ease your pain, even Dad

I know your happy days with me are gone
Can a mother ever be content after losing a daughter or a son?

Life will forever be to you incomplete
And joyful events will always be bittersweet

Mother, rest assured that I hear your cries
And listen to your aching heart and silent sighs

I wish I can come and wipe away your flowing tears
Including the dry ones that no one but me sees and hears

Oh Mother, I wish I could ease your pain
And for your sake, bring myself back to life again

    On Nov., 13, 2007 my daughter, Loriel, was killed in a car accident. She was 23 years old and on her way home from work. I miss her so much and just wnat to leave this world to go be with her. I would never hurt myself, but my pain feels so great.
