My Mom Is A Survivor

My Mom is a survivor,
or so I've heard it said.
But I can hear her crying at night
when all others are in bed.

I watch her lay awake at night
and go to hold her hand.
She doesn't know I'm with her
to help her understand.

But like the sands on the beach
that never wash away...
I watch over my surviving mom,
who thinks of me each day.

She wears a smile for others...
a smile of disguise!
But through Heaven's door I see
tears flowing from her eyes.

My mom tries to cope with death
to keep my memory alive.
But anyone who knows her knows
it is her way to survive.

As I watch over my surviving mom
through Heaven's open door...
I try to tell her that angels
protect me forevermore.

I know that doesn't help her...
or ease the burden she bears.
So if you get a chance, go visit her...
and show her that you care.

For no matter what she says...
no matter what she feels.
My surviving mom has a broken heart
that time won't ever heal.

  1. Hi Lindsey. I stumbled upon your blog tonight and I just wanted to say hi. I too have lost 2 children. My most recent was in February at 27.4 weeks. I just want you to know that it gets better. Your days will get brighter and you will start smiling real smiles again:) Your painful scar will get better...BUT it is always right there on your heart. Would love to chat if you want to.
    Blessings of comfort and peace! Erin
