Mum, Why Did You Go? | A Poem by Claire Mills

Mum, I miss you with all my heart.
Life isn’t fair,
Life took you, we had to part,
I look around and don’t see you through my eyes,
Now it’s just goodbyes.
Mum, why did
We have to say goodbye?
I don’t know.
What is my life now without your insight?
Inside, I begin to fight,
Mum I love you and it is true
Without you what will I do?
Tears drop to the ground,
You were the only mum I found.
