Look Back See Ahead


Look back see ahead

I was just six when
My mom was no more;
Still can be seen my
Mother's gravestone,
A bit away from
The old home shed:
From her ashes a
Flower garden instead.
Though I can hardly remember her,
The scent in the air,
The song of birds,
Sounds of nature,
Brings her memory to bear.
I recall my mother barely at all,
As if through distant portal.
I sent my eyes through this window
Into a world I can never know.
Yet I feel her stillness near,
Her whispers I almost hear;
Don't let myself down
In loss and pain;
Knowing next life we'll meet again.

    This poem is about the faint but powerful memory of a mother gone. It is written with the feelings of a son, that though remember little still the thought of her mother is strong with him.

    The poem has a tender but deep language that tells well what the person feels now.

    Take care!
