OMG - that is AWESOME @StrongCoffee. I hope it makes the short list & that it also takes it out!!
I close my
eyes, in my ears your favorite songs soulfully pierce,
words, the melodic and impassable distance, I swear I see you,
my startled gaze entrapped, as you lose yourself in time,
spoken, selfless pearls of wisdom departing from your lips,
tangled, distorted and bleeding as you faded,
The shape of
your face, in the unimagined silence,
by your earthly, lingering presence,
grappling, unsteady hand doesn’t search for yours,
darkening wakeful sleep, I will remember the endless depths of you,
As I hunger for
a craving peace and beckoning acceptance.
remember……you my beautiful Mum.
Have a great day! xxx M
