Mother of my birth
I miss you so today, for this is your day
The anniversary of the day you came into this word.
I am not sure what happened along the way
How we went from going to tea
Celebrating holidays with great joy
To great distance and estrangement.
You were suffering, and closing me off.
No calls, no letters, refusing my efforts.
So, I got busy, pursuing the dream you missed.
Still, I miss you so now.
And we can’t go back.
I wish you could have met these beautiful angels
That God sent to me.
I wish you could have been there
When I walked across the stage
When I spoke out loud to hundreds
When I mourned the loss of your son, alone.
I still have dreams of you
Always you look so beautiful and young
Happy and free
Ready for the next adventure.
Someday, Mommy, someday
You will guide me back into the light
We will know that pure love and perfect joy
And we will plan our next journey together.
