Ed Sheeran's “Supermarket Flowers”, one of the first songs that have really spoken to me in quite some time. A song that can relate and understand all of my own feelings in losing such a wonderful woman, my mom.
“You were an angel in the shape of my mom” You sure were. And now, just a different kind of angel.
Really, I like to think that you were an angel on earth. You were the most caring, loving, selfless and kind person that I have ever known.
You left an impact on everyone’s life that you came in contact with. There was not a person in this world that could say you were anything other than an absolutely beautiful soul.
You were my mom, but you were also so much more. You were my best friend. You were my confident. You were the person who knew exactly what to do or say when everything in life was a mess.
You were everything to me. You were the greatest person I have ever known and still the most important person in my life.
There has not been, nor will there ever be, someone that will take your place. You are everything and more to me and for that, I am the luckiest daughter in this world.
How lucky am I to say that my mom was an angel while on this earth and is now, my angel in heaven?
How lucky am I to say that my mom was genuinely the greatest person?
How lucky am I to say that my mom was also my best friend?
I am so lucky. The absolute luckiest. And even though our time on earth got cut short; I will never stop loving you, I will never stop missing you, I will never stop making you proud and I will never stop being grateful that you got to be my mom.
Every day is a day closer to seeing you again, but until then, I will live this life for you, my angel.
