Dear Momma

Dear Momma

From Chicken Soup for the Kid's Soul

Dear Momma

Who ran to help me when I fell, And would some pretty story tell, Or kiss the place to make it well? My Mother.

Anne Taylor

Dear Momma,

  I miss you. I miss all the good things that we used to do. I miss how you would laugh and tuck me into bed. I miss your kisses and hugs. I miss the way you would talk about how you loved your kids and your family. You said if you were God, you wouldn’t leave us.

  Every night I think I see you and hear your voice, but I guess I really don’t. Momma, I know you hear and see everything I say and do. Sometimes I want to cry, but I try to hold it in. Momma, I love you from the bottom of my heart. Your love is deep in my heart. I wish I could see you just one more time. I wish you didn’t have to die. I’ll love you always.

Your Son

My mother died when I was nine years old, and I was in the third grade. I just wrote to her because I miss her.

Darnell Hill, age 13
