A Different Mother’s Day

On this Mother’s Day
A different one appears
For it’s the first one
Without you being here

No thought of intention
To buy card and gift
No stop at the store
Or telephone lift

Your hole here is deeper
The wound opens wide
The missing grows bigger
Where you did reside

So I’ll write a letter
Some words of heart to share
What you meant to me
And send through a prayer

One of the soul
Of void of the filling
An intimate sharing
Love of fulfilling

You Helped Me To Cry

The day sorrow found me
I tried to keep it in
You shared a hug in love
Invitation to begin

That of heart outpouring
Tears streaming from our eyes
Comfort in your being
One within our cries

Together here of sharing
A binding beyond words
One within the knowing
That our hearts be heard

One of heaven sending
Compassion in your eye
Wrapped in arms of love
You helped me to cry

Forever I’ll be grateful
Beyond the words of feeling’
Beginning in this moment
You paved the path of healing
