Mother’s Day

My child face rests upon your lap

Fingers threading knotted hair

Innocence gently reassures

Gentle mother, be always there
Yet, you are but a half of me

And despite pride of pedigree

I travel far from your ever warm
And as a seed lost to the breeze

The years they pass with illusory ease

Thoughts of return lessen still

Knowing true I never will
