"Lettre à ma mère" - by Richard Clayderman

I want to do this for my mother. This piece translated means 'Letter to my mother'. What can you say to your mother... no words suffice for what's in the heart. So many plans I had planned for her but God to my sadness had something else in mind. He took her away and just when I needed her most.... and just when the dreams were almost in my hands. So close -- almost there. But when it did come ... it came to an empty heart, an irreplaceable inconsolable void. Still is, always will be. My heart aches with her memory. Nope, don't need nor wait for a Mother's Day because each time she comes to my mind is a 'Mother's Day' to me. And that's for as long as life is.


  1. It is a moving post and the music added to the poignancy.The memory of mothers last life time but the memory of a few who werea great influence in the formative years live every moment.

  2. Your words are so true, KP. Thanks for your lovely visit. Bless you!

    Hi Ellen, that shows the sensitiveness of a mother's heart of her mother..;)

    Memory of a mother is always special..;)

    Have good day,

  7. My dear Sie,

    You have touched my heart with your story. I'm so sorry these things have happened to you. Nothing that I could ever say now can make it right for you or ease your pain. Wish that I could.

    I've had a tough life too. But we must believe that things happen for a reason which often our minds or hearts cannot fathom. God alone knows why. But still we are made to go through the fire. I learned and understood it all in the midst of hurt and pain.

    You must have heard this before. Perhaps this could bring you some comfort and consolation --- to quote:

    "These trials will show that your faith is genuine. It is being tested as fire tests and purifies gold--though your faith is far more precious than mere gold. So when your faith remains strong through many trials, it will bring you much praise and glory and honor on the day when Jesus Christ is revealed to the whole world." - New Living Translation (©2007)

    There are other translations but I think this one is simple for lay people like us to understand.

    God's peace be with you for you have made it through the fire. A better person to yourself and now to your children. Shaped and molded after the heart of a loving God. God loves you more than you ever know, Sie.

    Oh I have no doubt that you will long be remembered by your child as a wonderful and fiercely devoted mother to them. You etch that memory in their hearts with your motherly love and attention in every moment everyday that comes to your lives.

    Okay lang tumulo ang luha, Sie; thank God you're human. Kung hindi ala eh baka freak of nature ka noh! Kidding! :-) You're an amazing person, glad to be your friend.

    God bless you and your children.
    Now show me your pretty smile .. :-)


  8. You're so right, Prams -- "Memory of a mother is always special.. ;) ". Glad you came by. Thanks and wish you a lovely day. Blessings!

  9. Its sad that those of us who have mothers take them so much for granted, including myself. Thank you for reminding me to appreciate my mom more.

  10. I lost my mom too. On Mother's Day a few years back. I still miss her. I know that deep heartache. Thankfully God fills in those missing spaces, amen?

  11. thank you for your message Ms.Ellen..I have been into too much po kaya medyo emo..God is good all the time..we have to accept that in every situation that comes in our lives are a part of God's workmanship within us..God is great is a part of my life's journey hehehe..title ng site ko po..salamat po ulit mwahhh :)
