    When my lungs no longer breathe and my heart no longer beats,

    When my eyes no longer see and my mouth no longer speaks,

    I'll still be me just further away, and in your heart I'll stay,

    I'll be there for when you need me, though need me not you may,

    When my arms cannot give hugs and my lips can no longer kiss,

    I'll still remember how you laugh and that I'll truly miss,

    My body may be in the ground, but my soul is still around,

    Still watching and still loving you, though i cannot be found,

    When you're scared at night and you need me there with you,

    Though i cannot sing to you like i used to do,

    Count your sheep, Try not to weep,

    And know that i will watch over you as you sleep.

    This poem is about my mum who passed away in January. whenever I was scared or sad at night i would sleep in her bed and she would hug me until i felt better. i really miss her and i hope that she is at peace now.

    Your poem is amazing! I love it! The way you described it, the rhymes, and the words used, it’s FANTASTIC! Yet... so sad, it seems like your mother is a wonderful mum. I can see you really miss her, but just know deep down, she’s always with you no matter what! She could be looking down at you in the heavens, or right next you. She could be smiling while your smiling too, just take your time to recover, I’m sure she’ll want to see you happy! I know death can be difficult though... but I’m sure she wants you to stay happy, for her. And... just know your never alone, if you ever feel like talking, you have us here! I hope your doing alright, stay strong and take care!

    Bereavement is truly one of the hardest things anyone can face, the way you've expressed yourself in this poem is entirely incredible and skillfull. I know for a fact she's watching over you now and is extremely proud of you. It's never an easy subject to talk about so well done for coming on here. I wish you and your family all the best in these times and remember there's always people there for you.

    Hi Monty

    Just wanted to build on what others have said, your poem is very powerful and may help others come to terms with a bereavement by helping them to think of the impact their loved one will always have on their lives no matter what.

    Do remember this is never something you have to go through alone.

    Take care

    My mum never died. But i have bereavment of the fact that i have never met her. I have to rap myself in my blanket and imagine she's hugging me and i never had a dad that cared. I am adopted and i have never felt loved by the family i am in now. i mean i suppose sometimes i do. I can see how much loosing your mum has affected you. Have you got anything to remind you of her??
