This is What Losing Your Mama Looks Like…

This is What Losing Your Mama Looks Like…

This is What Losing Your Mama Looks Like… 1000 667 Chase Jennings

This is what losing your mama looks like round about your first fall without her. When you look around and everything is her. When memories of conversations about the smell of fall come to mind. When you know that first call on your birthday won’t be her. When the lonely aches and your insides peel open into a past so deep with her that the air stings with her scent.

When you lie down and just stare because if you breathe too hard you could erupt and never stop bleeding your pain all over the floor. It’s lonely and it’s alone. It’s cold and it’s heavy. It’s all yours and you can do with it what you will.

This photo is of grief. Of losing my mama. Of being without her on this earth. In this photo I am not learning from the Grief, getting wise or praising God that He took her mama to heaven. (Always loving the Lord-don’t get that twisted)

Not right there. Not in that second. This is a photo of a little girl turned woman crushed at the thought of spending the first fall without her mama.

    I totally understand some of your pain as I just lost my daddy last week & we buried him Fri on Oct 5th I’m so lost for words I was a daddy’s girl all my life. He was my rock he was my WORLD! He was my everything. I’m so crushed not being able to see him or talk to him. It was a shock to us all. I pray for the both of us Tayla for losing our parents. I just thank God there both in Heaven enjoying life with Jesus, no pain, no stress just the beautiful heaven above now there with there parents,family & friends. Untill we all meet again when it’s our time. Lvs u Tayla, May God Bless you Always! Yours truely, Gwen Odya

    Tayla: My mother left me in 2012. Before she died she asked all her friends to bring her flowers every time they came to visit. She said “Don’t wait until I die & then bring flowers to my funeral. Bring ’em now while I can enjoy them! I woke up earl one morning a few weeks before she died & wrote this little song for my mama. Please share this song with anybody, everybody, & all. I would love to hear you sing this to your grandma…
    Your distant cousin, Ron Collier.

    Bring Me Flowers

    Please bring me flowers while I’m still living

    don’t wait until my last breath is gone

    I need memories to last forever

    when I leave for my heavenly home

    please bring me flowers while I’m still breathing

    don’t wait until my voice is still

    pick me some yellow Easter Lily’s

    from the old home-place on the hill

    bring me little white daisies

    growing wild out behind the barn

    she loves me, loves me not

    such beauty eternal in all their charm

    bring me roses while my eyes still see

    yellow for my birthday, red for Christmas Eve

    plant pretty tulips along the path to my flower garden

    for my children in remembrance of me
