Mother – She Will Never Again

Mom - She Will Never AgainMy mother passed away in 2004 and latelyΒ I’m thinking about her constantly. It is like I’ve suddenly, just now, realized that she isn’t coming back.

She will never again snap at me for not brushing my hair before coming into the restaurant.

She will never again snap at me for not washing my windows.

She will never again snap at me.

She will never again smack me for being hilariously inappropriate.

She will never again clap her hand over her mouth to cover her loud laughter.

She will never again laugh at me.

She will never again tell me that I’m just like my father.

She will never again tell me that I’m doing OK as a mother.

She will never again.

  4. Aw thanks so much. No I haven’t caught it, should I?


  5. It’s surprising at what point it finally strikes you that somebody is gone. I went through that in the military (Vietnam) and again over the years following when it struck me that I am the oldest one left in my bloodline.

    Found you at Austin’s place and thought I’d check out your blog.

    I lost my mother in 1993, my father in 1985 and my 2nd husband (my kids father) in 1983. It helps to have pictures to remember them by and sometimes a memory will trigger a tear for the very reasons you’ve outlined.

  11. Interesting fact: I seem to have lost the ability to watch the news before starting work. The time is used reading your blog and usually laughing my butt off. Thanks!

    I’ve always had this fear of losing her. 😦
    It scares me beyond imagination.


  16. Oh dear, I’m sorry to read that. I imagine she feels that way about you also. How about you give her a quick call or drop in for a coffee? πŸ™‚ Give her a hug for me too.

  18. Sorry you are finding it hard. I still have my parents (late 80s) but find the long ago deaths of other close family members seem to get more painful as I get older. Sounds like you had a playful relationship with your mum though – even if she did smack you for being inappropriate. Made me smile.

    I’ve said that worst part about losing someone is that they are dead for a such very long time. I found this post heartbreaking.

  25. In this context you may refer my Post “I know you are the Soul. But…” which is on my father who parted just the other day.

    Beautiful post. As a 47-year old woman who lost her mother at 11 years old, it’s hard to come to grips with the things she would never again do. Hugs
