((If anyone is wondering when I am going to upload another poem, there is no longer any need to do so. I wrote this for my mom for Mother's Day since I will be leaving for the Coast Guard in a few months. I would have loaded this sooner, but I've been busy and the internet at my school keeps going haywire.))

When I'm gone,

I promise to visit you often.

When I'm gone,

I promise to still give you hugs no matter how embarrassing.

When I'm gone,

I promise to do everything I can to always stay in touch with you.

When I'm gone,

I promise to call you mommy no matter how old I get.

When I'm gone,

I promise to send you Lilacs and flowers every Mother's Day.

When I'm gone,

I promise to love you no matter what!

When I'm gone

-Happy Mother's Day- 2012

(We may have our differences, but I still love you.)
