MOTHER'S LEAVING

IMG_0241.JPG

Mom's ninety-one; death has to come
Yet sadness I know still.
But in her space I won't remain
When eyes begin to fill.
I'll show her only happiness
And not the pain inside
By going deep within to where
Fond memories reside.
And when I can't contain my tears
The place that I will go
Is out into our garden where
They'll make her flowers grow.
