David Mcmahon's Question.


Click on the top photo to read the poem.

David, - The most important thing I lost was, when my Mother took ill with Alzheimers Disease, I lost her Love - Friendship. Its the most terrible thing to see someone close to you or anyone when they loose their mind. When She passed away in 2006 I wrote a poem and last Feb when it was her birthday My wife Julie, Stepfather and I went and put some flowers and my poem where her ashes were scattered.

I've read your poem before or seen it and it touches me still -only one mother evcer- sometimes I feel my son does not know I exist but then I do not really know the workings of his mind. His demonstrations are not this powerful for sure..

A touching post imac...our Mother's are so dear to us. We lost our mother five years ago. I still expect her phone call every morning. I don't expect that will ever pass.

I did not know that You are S.M. in person ... I was really touched by a poem of Yours the other day. You are a big heart IMAC, and Your mother must have been proud of You. What a lovely action to write a poem for her and visit to giver it to her. When exposed to this post, it is very hard to find the right words, and even harder in a second language. Maybe, a symbol should have been enough.

I remember that.
As a mother of 3 son's i can only hope that my son's will be half this thoughtful& loving.
It was very touching to me the other day, my son who is for now living with us for the time being, has a job that has put him in a position to go to some old folks care center. He came home and he said, OK mom you are never going to be put in a nursing home.I have seen and heard enough that you will never go there. Made me swellup a little.

Lovely tribute to your Mother--the poem and then being the man who would write it (says a lot about her nurturing, doesn't it?)
Thank you for posting this.
