Haiku I love you

Haiku Friday

Accepting the grief
Never thought it could happen
Beautiful Mourning

In my heart always
You'll always be my mother
No matter how long

It's been a while
since I've felt an acceptance
that allows my heart

To complete access
physically you're gone, I know
never forgotten

I see you in her
in her smile and in her eyes
My daughter and you

Both envelope me
In love and joy never lost
no matter how long.

Go here or here for Mr.Linky (these 'kuers rock) add your own piece of artful writing.

To play along for Haiku Friday, follow these steps:

  1. Beautiful honey, absolutely gorgeous.
    I'm sorry for your pain, but thank you for sharing this.
    Wonderful haiku.

  2. anniversaries
    of our losses bring up the
    issues unresolved

    annually 'til
    accepted ... then joy returns
    Congratulations ;--)

    Hugs and blessings,

  3. Beautiful Haiku, JJ......Have a lovely weekend with your family!

    God Bless,

  4. How beautiful. I love your haiku and your tribute. Very touching.

  5. This really touched my heart. Just beautiful.
    How fortunate you are to have a daughter to have our own wonderful mother/daughter relationship as you did with your mom.

  6. That is so touching. Nicely written.

  7. I got chills as I stared at your beautiful mom's photo.

    I believe it's impossible to get to a point where you are ever "right" with losing someone you love so much but the pain can certainly be eased. I love that you've found that "beautiful mourning" place.
    I'd like to think that your Mom and my Dad are hanging , keeping one another company ...and chatting about their amazingly strong kids ;)

  8. I am so glad you are continuing this newfound acceptance; it must be like a huge weight lifted off your shoulders and from your heart.

  9. "Both envelope me
    In love and joy never lost
    no matter how long."

    so, so beautiful.

  10. You are magnificent ... absolutely.
