Without Mom....
by Ann Stareyes
Growing up as a child
I still remember Mom so well
I remember Her good night kisses
And the stories she would tell.

There were six of us kids
She was busy as could be
She Loved us all so much
Anyone could see.

As each day would end
She'd finally get a break
She'd always read her Bible
And then she would pray.

She was our inspiration
That kept us on solid ground
She was our rock
That kept us all sound.

Then came the day
The Doc broke our hearts
Mom Had cancer
And I felt my heart stop.

He told us she had 6 months
I cried and I prayed
I didn't question God
But I begged him to let her stay.

After she was told this
She was still strong as can be
Her faith was remarkable
But us kids, the pain she didn't want us to see.

As each day went by
We stayed at her side
We watched her fade away
And all we could do was cry.

She lived 14 months
After the Doc told us this
God extended her time
To help us deal with this.

Tuesday, March 11, 1997
My phone rang
My sis said, "Ann, Come, Mom's calling your name.

When I got there
I knew it wouldn't be long
Death was in her eyes
God soon would carry her home.

In her final moments
Each of us kids told her of our love
Of how it would remain with her
When she'd take her journey above.

I stayed by her side
For 2 long days
She smiled and closed her eyes
Then she drifted away.

God gave me the strength
To let her go
And he still knows today
How I miss her so.

I still try to make Mom proud
Because she's looking from above, She would be proud of me
And I thank her for all her love.
