You were a very special and unique person until you passed away.
If you hadn't died, you would be celebrating your 74th birthday.
You were honest, unselfish and sincere.
You should've won Mother Of The Year.
I would've bought you a cake if you were still alive.
Today is special because your birthday has arrived.
I can't celebrate your birthday with you because you died in 2013.
Your death was very painful, it was the worst thing I've ever seen.
You were always a caring and generous person, that's something that I proclaim.
It saddened me when you died, I knew that life could never again be the same.
We would be celebrating together if you hadn't perished.
Happy Birthday, Mom, you will always be loved and cherished.
[Dedicated to Agnes Marie Johnson (1948-2013) who passed away on March 6, 2013]
Note: My mom's birthday was yesterday on the 2nd, but because this site was down, I had to wait until today to post this poem.
