I Remember It Like It Was Yesterday

I remember it like it was yesterday

A chilly winter afternoon, I rushed home after school,

Only to find something I didn't wanna see

I remember it like it was yesterday, the ambulance outside my house

My aunt yelling for me to get out, of the way,  so they could bring HER down

I remember it like it was yesterday, when my stomach sank and my heart ached so bad 

That I didn't think I could live another day carrying this pain

I remember it like it was yesterday, the day that God decided to take HER away 

From me, my brother, HER brothers, HER sisters HER family

I remember it like it was yesterday, when I got the news, I refused to believe 

My heart crumpling like dried leaves

I remember it like it was yesterday, the day that changed my life forever,

They day my mother went to heaven 

This poem is about: 
Me
