My Mom – September 10, 2019

She is…

both alive in me

And gone to this world.

~~~

She is…

My baggage

I will never drop

And always pick up

Teetering on the verge of sanity.

~~~

She is…

The wind

That plays in the leaves

That jostle the grasses

To make the most beautiful

Whoosh.

~~~

She is…

The voice

I hear

Humming in my ear

Peacefully putting me to sleep

There when I’m lost

Bringing me home.

~~~

She is…

My heartbeat

The thumping in my chest

Time and again

Cueing my will

Posturing my seat at the table.

~~~

It’s funny how the little moments,

tucked in your pocket.

A reminder

How strong

I’ve always had to be.

~~~

She is…

she was

And she will always be

With me,

My mom.

    1. Thank you so much 😊. I really enjoy your posts, and the English translations. I read through the French first, but have to go to the English to fully understand. I only know un pue :). Enjoy the remainder of your evening.
