My name's Rachel, and I'm fifteen years old at the current moment. My parents split when I was five. Five years later, I lost my mother on April 15, 2004. As a ten year old, loosing a parent does a lot to mature you. When you grow up in a place you've never been, let alone even heard of, you'd be amazed how much one can grow. But I'd give up this new 'maturity' for just another minute with my mom. Rest in Peace, Mommy.
Never Forget You
All the years without you have been like a blow.
I see other people, who don't know what they've got,
I feel like hitting them, more often then not.
It's been five years since then,
And I can still remember when,
You smiled and when you cried,
Sometimes, it's as if you never died.
Every time I think of you, I feel like crying,
I swear, it's as if a part of me is still dying.
You were the greatest mom ever,
And I thought you would be there forever.
But God took you away,
Leaving me here to stay.
I wish that you were here,
Just so that we could be near.
I'll never forget the time I had with you,
Even if that time is now through.
I wish it wasn't, with all my heart,
But there's nothing I can do; no way I can play that part.
No one will ever be able to replace you,
No matter how much they try.
You'll always be my mother,
Until the day I die.
