Mom's Story

COSMIC CORD
(2/5/10)


she
has been gone
for almost
10 years
now

there is not
one day
that goes by
when I do not
think of her

when
I do not
thank her

I feel
her presence
in a way
that would be
unnerving
if she were
any other
departed
being

I hear
every word
that I have ever
heard her
say

I see
every expression
that I have ever
seen her
make

I feel
the warmth
of every little
emotion of comfort
that she has
ever made
on my
behalf

she
is still here
each day
that I continue
to sense
the sun

she
will be
with me
always

where else
would
a mother
be?
