A New Day

It’s been a year since you’ve been here. There are times that I feel alright and, at other times, I break down and cry.

You hold the answers to the questions in my thoughts, although I know that those answers can never be sought.

I wish I could tell you that life for me has been smooth but, truthfully, without you here I just can’t seem to find my groove. Now that a year has passed, I hope I can put some of my excess baggage in the trash.

Sometimes I think about the times we walked hand in hand and about those times we played in the sand.

I remember that you were always there to pick me up when I fell. I remember how you wiped away the tears streaming down my cheek and made me, once again, feel well.

Much like my favorite poem “Footprints in the Sand” you continue to carry me when it seems that the world is far from being in my hands. There are moments that seem I just can’t go on but I think of your strength and I realize that, at those moments, I am wrong.

Like you, I have courage and strength. Those are values that you instilled in me at great lengths. I’m finding it in me to remain positive and it’s all because you are my motive. I know that you wouldn’t want me to waste away, that would just make my world all dark and grey.

You will always be the center of my world and I will always be your little girl. You gave me all that you had and I will forever be grateful and glad.

Merci pour tous les bons cadeaux que tu m’as donnees. Tu m’as donne le monde et tu n’as rien demande en retour.

Je t’aime toujours Maman et j’espere te voir a la fin de ma vie.
