Tribute to Esther Effie Bohen, poetess and mother. Birthday.. April 19th
Miss ya Mom.....

I Still Cry Mommy

hurt myself
the other day
I cried mommy
captured instantly
by words
not heard for years
only in hard
did such
words ever ring
yes childhood
through adulthood
the cry never left
not invoked in
small things
nor little pain
I've known
yet yes
in the sharp pain
the moan
I have known
few will confess
I yet revel
in the traced maternal
still cloaking me
canopy cascading
yes eternally
first words I spilled
when pain touched
my youth
was yes
I cry mommy rarely
grown man to full
though quite taken
with the
of the words remembered
of soul
quite enchanted
by the console
the words still drape
in balm
all who have known
fast sudden grip of pain
know well
the words that fall
are one of the same
yes mommy
'tis a rare call I know
yet a cry still caught
by man's ear
mine flew away
yet communion
still rides
upon the cry
each time the words
find flight
I'm stabbed deep
make it go way...

I miss my adopted mom, that raised me, more than I ever will my bio. mom,,,it's just sad, that my mother did not have a happy childhood, so that she could have passed on happiness,,,but she still did pretty good, considering what and who she had to work and deal with,,,,excellent, and very deep hearted write,,,
