For You Mom


For all the things I did not say,
So much grief along the way
For all the days that drifted by
Every moment without a hi

For all the dreams you had for me
For all my dreams instead
For all I wanted to say to you
For all the things we said.

For hope on prayers to one day see
For Heaven to be real
For a meeting that we’ll one day have
For all there is to feel.

For a Mother’s Day so empty now
For a mother who has passed
For you if you can hear my cries
To rest at peace at last.

Amongst the flowers I
am alone with my pot of wine
drinking by myself; then lifting
