Call Your Mother Pick up the phone... do it now. If you can. Later if you must, I trust that you, know the difference. She never put you off or told you "later" on. She was there, when the world, was not. Not everyone has one, "someone" like her. You are ungrateful, and a prick. That is thick from me, as I hate my own, don't you see. Some moms are not kind, they do not make cookies, or serve you wine. They have other ways, of making their presence known. That does not mean, that yours is less, or undeserving. You decide, Clyde, but don't hide, take pride, in the manner you say, that is "my mom..." over there, to share, stories about the good times, prayers about the bad, and hugs, for all the days in the middle.

This one makes me want to jump in the car and drive six hours each way again, even though I have already done it once this week. Hmmmmm

Sometimes there are no connections at all, and sometimes they are fake and you don't find out into things fall apart. All the time wasted... truth is best all around. God Bless your days... A very Specical New Year to you and yours. Peace and safety... God Bless. Ann

If one has a loving mother, this evil world seems very much less dark. When that loving Light passes on, the dark echoes its relief and one must fight its engulfing blues yet again. Exceptional poem my friend.. A fav.. a true gem too...

I have met a few mothers who were despicable, yet one must try to honor them as they are able. To treat a good one like crap is the most despicable of all. Good poem.

I am sorry. You are like her...then she is a true loss to all... and heavens gain. They sing! My adopted "friend" mom died last year. I was a drift for a while, picking up the things she did for others, to make sure, all was still okay. She had big shoes. She was barely over four feet tall. Heaven sings ... again... our loss... hugs friend. Ann
