Love Life Poems Logo

My mother passes away only last year from a self inflicting overdoes. She's always had trouble through my early childhood go into rehab, getting sober, then hitting the pills again. I knew that one day this was going to kill her and I did nothing to stop it. If you or someone you know is struggling, help them. They just need someone to hang on to. That's something I did not do for my mother and I lost her at 15. One year later I'm still blaming myself for it. Don't make the same mistakes I did.

The Day You Left

© Skylar

I remember laying in bed,
Thinking of you and feeling such dread

I felt a pain and all the cracks,
I did not realize I would never get you back

My tears were sudden and none withstanding,
My grief, a shriek, my pain overbearing

I only I knew all your own sorrow and pain,
I would have tried to save you I had so much to gain

But I was to late and you let me go
Now I just wish for you to know
I love you and it will always grow
