You are the reason for today:
A doorbell you rang seems just like yesterday
With rays of love shinning my everyday!
I know distance makes it hard for you to see:
A soul scrolls to the days we swing a sip of tea;
A heart crafts a distance closer for me to be!
The call yesterday made me cry:
I said hello, you couldn’t tie
To your daughter’s regards, why?
Your mind vanished words, my name fades
Into your heart’s shades
Where it still beats to your love aids
A disease to destroy minds’ arts
Yet, I linger to your heart and chart:
A time you baked and fed us tarts
I know life drank your vigor to be:
A mom to inspire and free
Our hearts from hate and fear
From you I learn to survive my days:
A mom lived in wars and phase
But, I beg you to stay strong to the blaze
Mom, I called you and swore:
One more time together ashore
When I arrive, you open the door!
Please, give me time to see you beside
Your grandkids and son that glide
To the sound of your pride!
