Dearest Lilemo

I have no idea what you must be going through in losing what I know, is the strongest pillar of strength in your life. I  know your mother was that to you too and with this loss came so many layers of heartache. Mothers are our first careers, our first playmates, and our first real friends. She’s the woman who rocked us to sleep when we were babies, breastfed us, patched us up when we hurt ourselves playing and dried our tears when we had our heart broken for the first time. They are angels on earth, superheroes in dresses, and miracle workers,. Your mother was an extraordinary woman who gave of herself so unselfishly. I hope you know that so many people love her and that she will be terribly missed by all. I think about you and the pain you are experiencing right now. I pray that you will be comforted by the stories of your mother and that you will have the strength and the courage to move forward. I see so much of her in you, and I know how very proud she was of you. She loved you so much and I hope you know that there’s nothing that she wouldn’t have done just to see you happy. The loss is beyond words and that the pain you are feeling is indescribable. I can’t say I know how it feels to lose our mother but I know your heart is broken and I wish I had the magic words to take away all the pain. But I can only share in your pain and sorrow and hope that you will find the peace and comfort that you seek during these challenging times and that the memories of your mother will ease your pain as you move forward in life without her. I hope that you will be reassured by the incredible love that your mother had for you and your entire family. Say not, in grief , that your mother has gone, but always remain thankful that she was yours. If there comes a moment that you cannot come out of your house of darkness, I hope I can be the person you will depend on, to come pull the shades up and let the light in. I am here for you. Always.




In the soaring sky I searched for an ember of life.
