|Mother's Day 2013|
Through my years of rogue-like wandering
a circuitous path, the ins and outs and ups and downs
at times defiant as a two-year-old,
you remained passive with undying love.
And now you're dying.
I wonder if you know I know
you stood beside me, a whisper in my heart?
That as a mother you excelled?
I'd like to accelerate backwards time, go back
and send daily praises to your side, thank you
for mothering me, for instilling family values--
blood a thread of life forever tied to piano keys,
your tender melody woven in my mind.
Today I'll sing your lively tune.
