A Letter From Mom
Your smile is what I want to see. It’s so beautiful. I know I cross your mind and that makes you sad, but I’m happy where I am. I’m at peace. I know we didn’t get a formal goodbye and Lord knows I didn’t want to make you cry, but God called my name and asked me to join Him at His side. I left knowing that you could handle this life because I raised you to be strong even though I know that you don’t believe you are. It’s been three years and baby you’re still surviving. Trust me that’s strength. I know life hasn’t been kind to you, none of it’s fair. You tell everyone you’re fine, but I know the pain is suffocating you and I want you to be free. I’m here to tell you that everything will be okay. Please don’t keep it all inside. Hold on tight to those who truly love and care about you, let them be your strength and your guide. It’s okay to feel weak and lost, it’s okay to ask for help. You don’t have to do this all by yourself. I’m physically gone but I’m still right here by your side. No matter what you go through you’re not alone. I hear you whenever you call, so that’s why I pop up on your phone. Ash please keep fighting, I’m so proud of you. No matter what, I will always love you.
