I Still Miss You Terribly
Even though you've been dead for two years, I still miss you terribly.
While you were alive, I meant a lot to you and you meant a lot to me.
You were an excellent mother and that is certainly true.
When it came to having a mom, I was proud to have you.
I still miss you terribly even though it has been twenty-seven months since you died.
Yesterday I was feeling pretty sad about your death and I damn nearly cried.
But I am feeling some better than I did just one year before.
I still miss you terribly because you're not around anymore.
