Without You - Goodbye Mom - passed away August 7, 2010

Today, August 7, 2010 will always be a day for remembrance for me. Today marks the death of my mother. She was a person who gave me the strength to manage through the trials of my life. Now she is gone. Now I must cope. Of course now, I turn to the brightest shining star of my life, my wife Virginia, who always supports me. She picks me up from the lowest depths of my most inner self. If it were not for my wife Virginia, I do not know how I could ever cope with this loss. Of course, I have the support of my relatives and friends. 

This poem is for you mom. You have been the most important person in my life, and I hate to let you go. 

WithOut YOU

Mom, without you, there would be no me.
 Your love, your attention, your guidance,
have made me who I am.
Without you, I would be lost,
wandering aimlessly,
without direction or purpose.
You showed me the way
to serve, to accomplish, to persevere.
Without you, there would be an empty space
I could never fill, no matter how I tried.
Instead, because of you,
I have joy, contentment, satisfaction and peace.
Thank you, mom.
I have always loved you
and I always will.
