In memory of mom

Apart

A part of you lives in me, 
but a part of me is gone.

A part of me understands, 
and yet I feel all wrong.

A part of me wants to die, 
but it seems I must live.

A part of me fills with anger, 
but you taught me to forgive.

Yes, a part of you lives in me, 
and forever, a part of me is gone;

but rest my sweet mother, 
for both of us…I shall carry on.
