The years of hate

The time we lost

I couldn't forgive you

Too high was the cost

The tears that were spent

The breaking of hearts

So much pain

So far apart

A new dawn emerged

Putting light in my mind

I learned to listen

To understand your plight

The words became frequent

And at last you were there

Suddenly the hatred

Became lost in dead air

You smiled

We embraced

New tears broke through

Tears of joy

Of love for you

I can't imagine now

Not hearing your laugh

Not seeing your face

Or remembering the past

Another year has gone by

As you've become part of me

I send you all my love

Mother
