Mother, Mother Where Are You?

Written by: Sue Mason

Of a child's innocence.
Too late to forgive
Her hate-filled drunkeness when
Expounding on this word.
Rather forget than pretend she cared.

Maybe in some
Other lifetime we
Two will work through our
History to find the
Elation this word brings when
Remembered by others.
