Default Poem I wrote for my Mom

So January 13th this year my mother passed away to an Anurizum (sorry I don't know how to spell that correctly) and I was there when it happened. I was the last person she saw, she spoke to.. during that time I decided to make a little poem for her and I read this at her funeral. I have it hanging in my room framed up. So here it is...

I wake up every morning just mourning our loss,
my eyes keep pouring without warning it's hard absorbing you're gone,
but I'll always remember how heart-warming your spirit was,
even in times of trouble, you lifted us up with unconditional love,
I'm proud to be your son.

You told me "Stiffin' up that upper lip little soldier you're tough enough to tackle anything that comes into your path",
I found it funny I found my voice by jotting little pointless raps,
but you told me to keep on writin',
so I sit up all night and,
think of a clever phrase or how to handle my ways,
got so down on myself you told me I had a unique brain.

I don't have to hop in my truck and realize without you in the passenger seat I'm driving insane,
everyday I'm in the fast lane and I need your help to slow down to the limit so I can catch a break
but, you told me to wait..you always told me to wait.

Out of the blue when I was feeling blue you told me I'd be great,
Now I believe it. Your love I'm so glad I received it.
Mom for you I'ma go far, the only thing I'll forever cherish is that I have your heart,
Even when I'm trapped in the dark, your love shines so bright that when I look up at the night sky you out shine even the brightest stars.

Thank you for everything mom, you're the bomb.
I know you're guiding us all by hand because I can feel your palm.
Hey mom there's a question I must ask.
Can you tell God I'ma do everything possible to follow his path?
Even during my hardest task, or even when the Devil tries to create his wrath?
One day we'll see you again. you're still a wife, a sister, a mom, a daughter, and a friend.
We all can see you smile, now go mom, and go dance with the kids.
