The unconditional love of a mother is one of the closest experiences we can ever have of perfect devotion. Indeed, motherhood is a life of pride and a true blessing to mankind.

Ignorantly, we have, in many uncountable ways, failed to acknowledge the sacrifices a mother makes to keep us going through life, while she struggles to keep her head above the waters of hardship. The rude shock comes when the woman who we think will stay as our mother forever exits this painful world.

Her departure though inevitable, is more heart-ripping when we realise that we didn’t let her know how much she meant to us and how deeply we loved her. It becomes as though her forever absence broke down the door of our years of ingratitude, mumblings, anger, and rebellion toward her, and in its place, erected a fountain of ceaseless tears of loss and regrets.

Since every human being on earth has his uniqueness, there are people who find it difficult to get over the hurt caused by their mothers’ unreturnable exit. For them, it takes the expression of their pent up feelings in words to gradually help them heal.

Also, reading poems or short messages that are similar to what they feel about their mothers goes a long way to speed up their psychological healing. This write-up is purposed to make that work, and if you’re one of those in need of closure through I miss you mum messages, read through.
