D.L. Aceves

(July 21,1982 / California)

I Didn't Cry

I didn't cry
As I stood by her side.
I didn't cry
When I said good-bye.
I didn't cry
I didn't cry—
I didn't cry the day she died.

    Having read your lovely tribute to your mother, I do not find this poem morbid at all. I fully understand the emotion behind it. Read mine - Maternal Seasons -
