A funeral poem for comfort during unsettling times

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…
