A Mother's Day Poem - Wish You Were Here

Jackie Lynnley shares emotional times in her life in hopes of touching someone with like thoughts or feelings, feelings from the heart.

Looking Back in Time

How I wish I had taken more advantage of showing my mother how much she meant to me. I am sure out of all her seven children I was closest to her, spent more time and did more for her. Yet once a parent is gone I know we all have regrets of what we should have done.

This is a tribute by poem to a mother who meant so much to me. To whom I will never stop missing no matter how many years she is gone from me. Never a day goes by I do not think of her and wish she was here.

There is No Sweeter Name Than Mother


Wish You Were Here

Seven years that you've been gone

You'd think I'd forget somehow

That time would mellow the ache

of just how I feel right now

But no, time makes no difference

I think of you every single day

All the things of beauty I see

Only brings my mind to play

The sky and clouds I look up at

The green grass and every flower

Wanting you here to see it with me

Your love still has that power

Thoughts still can grip my heart

Wishing you were here with me

Wanting you to have every joy

and see all the beauty that I see

She Had That Style


I take you with me everywhere

My heart just cannot let you go

There is never a thing of beauty

That I wouldn’t just love to show

Your face I see in all these things

No matter how many traveled miles

Your warmth I feel all around me

And remembering your sweet smiles

Somehow I know you are there

A surrounding warm sweet aura

A whispering breeze across my face

That could never bring me sorrow

Only happiness from the memories

There is never an ounce of fear

Just lovely thoughts of time with you

And wishing you still were here

“Happy Mother’s Day” Mom

Love that never dies


Wish You Were Here by the Bee Gees
