It's Mother's Day

Written by: Broken Wings

~*~ And I am coming to see you, Mom It will take me half the day, by bus But, I got up early, washed my hair with lemons Like you used to do for me I am wearing a real pretty dress And holding a bouquet of pink flowers Remember, when I brought you wilted dandelions Yet, you loved them still Can we just talk about things About our journey, heartbreaks and many joys I think of you every single day, Mom You are my mother and my friend I have a long bus ride home before dark And it is starting to rain and get cold It is never easy to turn and walk away But, all I can do is leave a tear Now, rest in peace, dear Mom I'll be back next year ~*~ a la memoire de Jacqueline La France May 12, 2013 Verse
