After my first breath I was placed in her loving arms and it was there I would always find the most comfort. She was the first one to hold my tiny hand in hers and the first one to calm me as I cried. She gave me life and now the only thing I can do is celebrate her life. My mom passed away on March 7th, 2014. I thought words would flood my brain to help release the pain of losing her but none would come until now.
You left us in the early hours,
so peacefully your spirit would roam.
Through a gentle wind and the rising sun,
He called to take you home.
A ladder was built for your journey to light,
each rung meant to make you content.
While bathed in the glowing light of rebirth,
you gracefully began your ascent.
Loving arms awaited you there,
curling you into their embrace.
Heaven welcomed an angel back home,
rejoicing her love and her grace.
You leave behind your spirit and joy,
in those who loved you each day.
While our days will be saddened by the emptiness we feel,
we know we will see you someday.
Jane Eleanore Nairn – May 21, 1940 – March 7, 2014

So sorry for your loss. A beautiful tribute to your Mom.
Thank you so much
I am so very sorry, Susan. Sending you thoughts of strength and love xxx
Thank you Dianne.
Oh, Susan, I’m so sorry. What a lovely tribute to your mother, no doubt she is so proud of you. Sending you hugs, prayers and peace.
Thanks so much Jill….I should count how many times I reach for the phone to call her.
Oh, Susan…that breaks my heart. I’m the same with my mother… xoxo
For me, that is the hardest part. I talked to her at least once a day.
((hugs)) I’m so sorry, Susan.
thanks very much. Hugs are much appreciated.
My thoughts and prayers are with you Susan, as you learn how to live without your Mom’s physical presence, but be assured…her spirit will ALWAYS be with you! I talk to my Mom’s photo, since I can’t call her! Your poem was beautiful…you are a writer!!
Thanks Janice…..it’s hard every time I reach for the phone.
My heart goes out to you. It’s a pain like no other. Hugs.
sending you hugs and prayers–there is no other loss like the loss of a mother
Susan, my heart goes out to you. My mom passed 10 years ago this June, and not a day since has gone by that I haven’t wished I could talk to her for just a few minutes. And I do talk to her, just in a different way now. Sending you hugs and wishing you a peaceful heart as you make this difficult transition.
Thanks very much. One day at a time, I guess, today is a particularly bad one.
I cried more days than not for the first month after my mother died. Give yourself permission to feel whatever you feel—it’s all okay, and part of what you need to do to get through this.
I’m so, so sorry. If there’s anything I can do for you, let me know.
Thank you, Mrs. Nairn for raising such a wonderful daughter.
Wow…I shouldn’t have read that while I was already crying. Thank you….she was a wonderful lady and we both would and do appreciate that comment very much.
What a beautiful poem. I am so sorry for your loss, Susan.
Thank you Mike. I appreciate that.
Brought tears to my eyes… a lovely tribute. Hugs.
So sorry to hear this. But this was a wonderful tribute.
Oh, Susan, I’m so sorry. Your beautiful poem brought tears to my eyes. I know there’s nothing I can write that will make you feel better, but know my thoughts are with you.
Thank you Janna, I appreciate that.
Sue that is a beautiful poem for a beautiful women. Your mom was a great lady and I know she will be missed by a whole lot of people. Hugs and best wishes.
Thanks so much Sue.
Beautiful tribute, touching. I’m so sorry for your loss. I am terrified of the day I lose my own mother, so I can’t even begin to imagine what you’re going through. I’m here for you if you need me.
Thanks Sage. Some moments are better than others….I just keep trying to picture her happy and healthy and that seems to help a bit.
Yeah, I tend to be the kind to delve into the memories and photos and really put myself through the process. It helps me. Let me know if there’s anything I can do for you.
