A funeral poem for comfort during unsettling times

A Daughter’s Promise

Every time I smile,

Every time I sigh,

I think of your face,

And a tear escapes my eye.

You were my world,

My inspiration and my heart,

But when you left me,

I thought I would fall apart.

You were my best friend,

My one true confidant,

And that’s not all you were.

You were also my mom.

I didn’t want to live without you,

But you would have wanted me to,

And if there’s anyone I want to make happy,

That anyone is you.

I would have given anything to have you back,

But I know now that it was meant to be,

For you are still watching from up there,

And I know you’re watching me.

I’ll make you proud, Mom.

I’m going to fulfill your wish.

You’re going to see me and smile.

That’s a daughter’s promise.
