I HAVE NOT FORGOTTEN YOU MOTHER

Mother-daughter-love-

Ten years have passed
Ten years without your love
Ten years missing your laughter
Ten years crying for your loss
Ten years not holding you
Ten years not laying on your chest
Ten years not hearing your advice

I have not forgotten you mother

Ten years I have yearned for you
Ten years I have missed you
Ten years I have been alone
Ten years I have cried so much
Ten years I have lost my direction
Ten years I have not talked to you
Ten years I have held myself

I have not forgotten you mother

Ten years you are still with me
Ten years you live in my heart
Ten years you speak in my dreams
Ten years you exist in my memories
Ten years you dwell in my mind
Ten years you stay in my soul
Ten years you abide in my brain

I have not forgotten you mother

Ten years of silently wishing you home
Ten years of words spoken in your memory
Ten years of still questioning my reality
Ten years of wanting the same thing, you
Ten years of tear stained pillows at night
Ten years of creating a wall around my heart
Ten years of having Immersed myself with rain

I have not forgotten you mother

Now you get to meet your grandson
My baby is up there with you mother
I miss you both
More than you will ever know
Ten years, mother
It’s been ten years
I need to survive another ten
Without you and my baby

fist-against-aids-720

I watch as her casket is being lowered into the cold hard ground
I am numb, i am blank, i am dark, i am lost
Blurry eyes try to see her last bed she will lay on
It could have been mahogany brown
It could have been painted more smoother
It should have been decorated with lace
What the f&¥% is a fly doing flying around here

You come into this world
Born out of a love that’s pure
Full of generous hopes
I want to look at you and know
You are my entire world
All the love i have in me
Is reserved for the day you arrive

IN MY SON’S EYES

I felt your first kick when i was eating chocolate
It felt so unreal yet beautiful i shed a tear
Your long awaited moment
I felt it in my heart
I knew with everything in my being
That you were a boy
Shhhh! It’s our little secret i smiled to myself
You were made in a moment that was full of so many emotions

IN MY MOTHER’S EYES

African-mother

In my mother’s EYES
There is a strength i draw
Stability that gives me life, i find my way in them

In my mother’s ARMS
I feel safe and secure
Nothing in the world can make me fear
As i hold her back Continue reading “IN MY MOTHER’S EYES”
