Miss You Mum Goodnight – By Dorothy Buxner

Miss You Mum Goodnight
(Mother Memorial Poems)

When I think about the old days
I want them back again ..
Our house was always happy
And full of laughter then.

We’d all be there together
content in every way ..
Then the mainstay of the family
simply went away.

All of us, do the best we can
but it will never be the same ..
We can’t tell you how often
we all still speak your name.

All I wish is that once more
before I lower the light ..
I could only kiss her on the cheek
and say “I love you Mum” Goodnight.
