Begonias Bring Her Back

Lying by the pool on Mother’s Day
My thoughts were so many miles away

Suddenly my concentration broke
“Your begonias are pretty,” she spoke

I looked, hoping to see her sweet face
Wanting to give her one more embrace

I was the youngest of three children
I still think of her now and again

But to hear her voice on Mother’s Day
Was better than a floral bouquet

She’s still with me; I feel her presence
And when obstacles seem too immense

She comes to me often in a dream
And I feel her embrace as I scream

As May approaches, she’s on my mind
To Mother’s Day my thoughts are confined

Alone in Mom’s old house, memories
I feel love her spirit embodies



*Entry for Carol Brown’s Memories of May contest.  Written by Carolyn Devonshire.  (True Story)
