A Mother Always Remembers
By Gail Fasolo 4-19-99 
Mothers Day 
Another Mother’s Day is here
that holds no joy for me.
Instead of giving you a hug
empty arms are all I see.

Others think that I’ve forgotten,
can they really be so naive?
A mother always remembers
the child she conceived

My love for you can’t be replaced
it’s yours and yours alone.
The special bond we shared each day
is the strongest ever known .

As my heart aches for you today
the feeling is so weird.
You’re not supposed to be in heaven
you’re supposed to be right here.

Fate stole your life, took you away
it made me less than whole.
But you still live on each day
right in my very soul.
