        Sad Mom Moment

        D. J. Hall – 06/24/09

 

Having a sad mom moment

Thoughts of the sweetest smile bring

A painful tenderness to me.

I miss her.

 

Quick to laugh at her own mix-ups

Scattered at times.

Patient and kind

She always forgave me mine.

 

Having a sad mom moment

Her spirit inside me,

Breathes through me

I want her.

 

Bright warm eyes

Deep in thought.

Concern for others

Above herself.

 

Having a sad mom moment

A sorrow never felt

While she was here.

I  need her.

 

Willing gentle listener

She read emotions

Wrapped under words

Wise in the ways of empathy.

 

Having a sad mom moment

Somehow comforts and reminds me

How blessed my life has been.

I love her.
