(mothers' Day Wishes) Acrostic
Maybe this time, he'll remember.
Once a year's not asking much
To send a bunch of flowers;
Has he even heard of such?
Even if he has, seems the florist's
Rather too far for him to walk,
So he just sends a token;
Doesn't even want to talk
At length to me on the phone.
Yet he surely must have known
What I wish from him today
Is not a gift and a card, at most
Sent without a loving thought,
Hastily thrown in the post.
Easy to guess my wish this year:
Son, I'd love to see you, here.
