To my Bird, love Mama

by Brenda   Jun 16, 2019


I no longer
end my calls
to you with
"good-bye" .
In hopes
that if I don't
utter
those words
you will still be here
tomorrow...
-
For my heart
skips
A beat
as bit by bit it
shatters...
Knowing one day
I won't see your
smiling face,
or hear your
sweet voice,
telling me your
dreams and desires...
-
I'm not prepared
to let you
go-
I need more
time-
You need more
time-
to fulfill your dreams,
to make your mark
on this world...
-
I shore up my
defenses.
But it's all for naught.
This illusion I
carry...
For when the time comes
and debts must be paid-
A piece of me
will be gone
forever...
-
So always know this,
sweet Bird...
I will
never forget you-
You had my heart
the day you came
into this world-
You will take it
The day you leave...
