Mummy I miss you

Posted by on January 14, 2010

This post is in response the brilliant Writing Workshop I have just come across by Josie at Sleep is the for the Weak. I felt compelled to write something in response to prompt 2. Tell me about something you miss

Mummy I miss you.
I miss not knowing whether I sucked my thumb
I miss not knowing if I slept through early on
I miss not knowing if I threw tantrums
I wish you were here to ask now

I miss how you would kiss it better
I miss how you would make me feel safe
I miss how you could make me feel happy
I wish you were here to laugh with me now

I miss how you picked me up from school
I miss how you told me to ignore the bullies
I miss how you treated me like I was special
I wish you were here to comfort me now

I miss that you’ll never hold my children
I miss that you weren’t there at their births
I wish I could feel your warmth and love
I wish you were here with me now.

I miss her everyday and this Writing Workshop gave me a reason to write about that.
