You been gone a long time now. When you died, it was a very painful experience for me. Years have gone by, the hurt I felt then has only intensified. I now think of you more and more. I think I should have been a better daughter. I wasn’t too bad a daughter, but I could have been a better one. I wish I’d taken you out more for dinner, so you’d have day off from the drudgery of life. I wish I’d taken long walks with you. I wish I’d asked about your childhood and what it was like. I wish I’d ask you how you and dad met. I have so many questions for you about your life. Why didn’t I ask when you were alive? It is too bad that daughters and sons don’t realize how precious their parents are. No one can ever fill the empty space in my heart that you’ve left. There’ll always be an empty space in my heart reserved just for you and no one else will enter it. No one.
Mom, if there’s such a thing as reincarnation, I hope I come back as your daughter. I will treat you like the great person you were. You will never want for anything. I will treat you like a queen, Mom.
I know you’re in heaven, if there’s such a thing. And if there isn’t, maybe you’re in a better place. I just know you were too good a person to be anywhere else.
Mom. I want you to know there aren’t too many good people left on earth. You were one of the special ones.
Mom, I’ll always miss you. There isn’t a day I don’t miss you. I think of you all the time.

Today is Mother’s Day here in the United States. It’s every second Sunday in May. I’m not going to write anything depressing today. I just want Mothers everywhere to have a good day and enjoy it.
My mother isn’t alive any more. She died several years ago. And I can tell you, I miss my mother more and more every day. It doesn’t get any easier, as the years go by, not to have my mother around. Mother’s Day is always a day that makes me cry. I would love to have a day to spend with my mother again. To hold her and tell her I love her, but this is not possible. I have to accept that’s she’s died. I want to tell you out there, who still have their mothers, to treasure them as you would gold. They’re treasures that can’t be replaced by anything material. Mothers are special beings. Treat them special every chance you get and tell them every day you love them. No one can replace a mother. No one! So if you’re still lucky enough to enjoy the company of your mother, tell her you love her over and over. She can’t hear it enough. I know when my mother was alive, that’s one thing I did not do wrong. I wasn’t the best daughter, but I always remembered when I left my mother to say “I love you, mom”. You never know when your mother will die, so don’t take her for granted.
Happy Mother’s Day to all the mothers everywhere in the world. You are national treasures. I send my love to every one of you.
And to my mother, wherever she is: Mom, I love and miss you. Thanks for everything you did for me.
