.Mom, I lost you 1 yr ago, yet it seems forever since that fateful night. I couldn't believe what had happened. Suddenly, the room was cleared & it was just you & me, mom. I didn't want to let you go. I held you in my arms & stroked your hair. I wish I'd known, I wish I'd said good bye. I survived losing you, which I never thought I could or would, but I'm different. I'm not who I used to be. I'm missing the best parts of me, which I learned from you.
