"The greatest problem in communication is the illusion that it has been accomplished."

~George Bernard Shaw

 “What part of ‘no’ don’t you understand?” she would shout
“Is the definition of that word hard to figure out?”
I would stand and brace myself for I knew I was in for a reprimand
“I’m telling you ‘no’ for your own good,” she would say. “Is that so hard to understand?
I must admit as a child I did find it hard to comprehend
All I did was cross the street. The whole world didn’t come to an end
Maybe my mom was over-protective. Maybe she worried far too much
But that is what mothers do, you know. They worry, care, pray and such
I really feel as I look back that her prayers were answered
That God heard and kept a watchful eye all because of her
Today she is in his loving arms at a place I cannot yet see
But I know because of her prayers it is where I will one day be
Today I would give anything to hear her voice once more
But I do hear the echoes of her love and I will soon meet with her at Heavens’ door


Excerpts from Rebirth of the Dogwood

We all wait for that glorious day. Splendid poetry and I'm sure your mom is smiling in heaven as she feels your love for her.
