What can we do when we look for answers but no answers can be given by someone in her grave? This is another poem some rhyme some free verse about my love for my mother.

A Daughter's Love
by Barbara Lynn Terry


I came home only to find

a whirling in my mind

as mother stood there

and asked where

had I been.

She knew where I had been

but she didn't like it then'

and doesn't like it now

but wait! I wrinkled my brow

mother isn't here any more.

She passsed away on groundhog day.

In much pain she went away

but did she go to heaven,

or the other place

or is she stuck in between?

If she is stuck in between

does that mean she still has

a chance to redeem her soul

for the mean things she did

and the lies she told about me?

I certainly hope that the Lord

will redeem her soul because

my love for my mother is deep

in my heart and it will never die.

Deliver her from evil Lord. Please?

I had wondered this very thing about my Mother
back in 1973 when I was 11 at the time of her death
turning 12 that year in September...

Our hearts grieve for fear to them
but we must console it & release it
to know love can reach them...

I know a mother that couldn't ever "...redeem her soul..." not after sowing so much hate and violence. The only thing I know is that God have more capacity to forgiveness than I will ever have.

People don't always know how having a daughter can mean so much more to a mother. Sons will be sons until they get married, then they will have their own families; but having a daughter is like having a friend for life.

I think given the era that your mother had lived in. People aren't accepted easily of what you were going throuuh; but if given the chance that your mother to live in this era that we are living in, she may have thought differently about everything. It's all because of what the society thinks.

I'm sorry for the way that you have been treated. I think every individual should be allowed to make their own choice in life in which they want to live it.

We all have some unpleasant past, but the way to beat that is try not to think about it. The future is what we have to face, since we cannot change what has happened in the past. Don't worry about what we can't change.

You are now free to live your own life the way that you have always wanted to live, so I wish you happiness always.

Thank you for sharing this!!
