I Miss My Mum

Today I miss my Mum more than ever –

I miss her everyday since she passed away last September, even though for the last two years of her life we lived in different countries.

But today, for some strange reason, I felt a kind of emptiness all day.

I wanted to pick up the phone and call her like I would do everyday.

I wanted to talk to her and see her on Skype.

I wanted to hear her gentle voice and hear her call me ‘darling’.

Maybe it’s got to do with the fact that I had some photo books delivered yesterday and I know she would have just loved them because she loved photos.

Maybe it’s got to do with the fact that while clearing up I found a doll that she had bought me when I was little.

Maybe it’s because I saw in my little girl such a strong mannerism of hers.

Maybe because it is slowly sinking in that she is no more. I will never see her smile again. Never hear her laugh or never be able to put my arms around her.

Maybe it’s because one is never too old to miss one’s Mum.

  1. Jess, I know exactly how you feel. I wish I could say that the yearning for your mum will decrease. What I do know is that she is always with you; you will feel her presence every single time you need her and many times when you don’t. Love and hugs.
