The Other Poem My Mom Left


Recommended Posts

My mom loved poetry and literature, and wrote a lot of poetry herself. Here is an untitled poem by Colleen Hitchcock that we found with the other poem in her dresser:

And if I go, while you're still here . . . .

Know that I still live on,

Vibrating to a different measure

behind a thin veil you cannot see through.

You will not see me,

so you must have faith.

I wait the time when we can soar together again,

both aware of each other.

Until then, live your life to the fullest.

And when you need me,

just whisper my name in your heart,

. . . . . . . I will be there.

* These poems mean so much to me. I will look at them when I miss my mom.*
