You Mattered To Me

A funeral poem for comfort during unsettling times

Print

You Mattered To Me

You lived your life thinking that no one cared.

You thought you were all alone, your heart feeling tattered.

I am here to tell you that you were wrong

‘Cause you see – Mom – to me you mattered.

I loved you when you were angry and mean.

I loved you when you were kind as could be.

I loved you not just because I had to.

I loved you because you mattered to me.

It hurts to know that now you’re gone

And never will your face again I see.

I hurt not because I am supposed to;

I hurt because you mattered to me.

I have to live on each day without you.

It doesn’t get easier as it is supposed to be.

I feel the loss of you to my very soul

Because you see – Mom – you mattered to me.

Your touch, your smile, your funny wit.

The times it was just you and me.

I will miss you, Mom, with all my heart

‘Cause you still matter to me…
