A Visit From Mother

My mother comes to visit me I always look forward to what will be. Leaves of red and brown, as it is fall Her presence here makes me feel small. I know she loves me, for that is true “I’ve come to have a talk with you.” She tells me dad is doing well, I know she’s happy, I can tell. She then asks me how I have been I respond to her with a wide grin. She talks about my uncle too, “He always says he misses you.” She says that she’s been working hard Taking care of the house, and also the yard. Silence echoes as leaves fall from the sky Now it is time to say goodbye. I call out to her and ask for her to stay But she lays flowers on my grave and walks away.

Awesome man. I checked out some of yours after you commented on mine and I really like this one. I'm very new to all of this so I don't know what to call mine so I just say rhyme. I look forward to reading more of yours. Take it easy guy.

Thanks Wes, means a lot. We'll have to compare works as time goes on. I pretty much do the same thing by calling them all rhyme, but you can read about the different types of forms and that definitely helps me out. Cheers bud!

The last line of this poem is nothing short of breathtaking (no pun intended). The poem is exceptionally well conceived and composed. Super work!
